Recovery

Postby TiaMaster » Sat Oct 12, 2019 10:43 pm

The rules say you recover shock at a rate of one every minute. The section on Recovery says you can spend a turn to restore 2 shock. But under Knocked Out it says when getting KOed from shock you don't recover for thirty minutes. Is this correct?

That sounds right. You don’t recover Shock the same way if you’re unconscious, just like you don’t recover Wounds at the same rate once you’re dead.

Except maybe in the Nile Empire.

I would say it down to different situations.

2 shock every minute = you are out combat and presumably doing light duties, walking, etc.

1 turn for 2 shock = you are in combat but keeping your head down and nothing but catching your breath.

No shock for 30 min while KOd = Have you seen what I am like getting up for work in the morning? I'm definitely still in shock for a bit...

I'm presuming the character is not being pummeled while KOed but is, in fact, just lying there.

Being beaten into unconsciousness is a pretty far step beyond being bruised and worn down.
