Game and Story Use

  • If animals play a significant role in your campaign; if the PC's ride mounts, for example, or if one has a familiar; the health of those animals may become important in the game. Giving a character some veterinary knowledge may be useful.
  • Or, if one of their animals falls ill, they may have to seek out a professional who knows how to treat it.
  • Like Herschel, they may also be the nearest thing going to an actual doctor.
