Ressurection Man In the boneyard, a grave stands open, the sounds of a grim feast can be heard from within.

3
Requires Seasoned
You possess the ability to rapidly heal yourself.
Used by Edgar Stokes, Created by Strazhari.

Edgar seems to shrug off wounds easily, blood clots almost immediately, though deep wounds will remain for some time.

This process is hindered if the wound was inflicted by fire - the scabrous flesh of ghouls burns as well as anyone.


You gain the following benefits at all times.

Any Injury you receive from a source other than Burns heals quickly, reducing its Severity by one level each hour, starting once it becomes stabilized. Battle Scars caused by your Injuries will remain. Any Injuries you receive stabilize automatically and do not deteriorate further.

As long as at least half your body remains intact, you cannot die and remain at Incapacitated, regardless of how many Injuries you take. It is clear to observers that you are still alive. If you take any Injuries that would kill you, they instead cause Battle Scars.

Once an Injury has been reduced in Severity by two levels, it no longer benefits from this effect and instead heals as normal.
