Heal

Healers have shoppes in many cities and villages, and in some castles and keeps.

The vast wildernesses of Britannia, though rich in beauty, also hold hidden dangers capable of causing travelers injury or illness. Bold knights frequently incur serious wounds. Poison and plague also take their toll. Fortunately, medicine is advanced in the treatment of just these problems. Healers can turn back the ravages of swamp poison.

While it is hard to say any price is unfair for saving a life, some healers are known for their reasonable prices and others are not. Skara Brae's healer has been known to heal even those who cannot pay at all. Few health problems are beyond the ken of the healers, whether disease, wounds, or poison. Some healers are even experimenting with the concept of resurrection. There have rumbled persistent rumors of magical resurrection techniques being used by extremely adept mages within closeknit, secret groups. There is still some controversy over whether such techniques should be pursued, but Lord British is known to have supported the research at every turn.

History Edit

Healer shops first appeared in Ultima III. After that, the rules for the Healers in Britannia stayed essentially the same. Although the Book of Fellowship says in Ultima VII that Healers don't have any effect, it is a lie based on propaganda.

Healers

Lore Edit

Some towns contain these invaluable places of aid where one may go to be healed when suffering from grievous wounds. Remember to heal thy companions also, for a healthy party ensures survival in the wild regions. The Healers are the only ones who may cure victims of the noxious venom inflicted by the inhuman denizens of the land.

The vast wildernesses of Britannia, though rich in beauty, also hold hidden dangers capable of causing travelers injury or illness. Luckily, many towns have professional people trained in the medicinal arts. Healers can turn back the ravages of swamp poison or heal wounds earned in battle. Some physicians claim that their healing arts have been enhanced and augmented by magic, to the point they can resurrect the dead!

- from Compendium (Ultima VI)

Many who succumb to injury or illness have their conditions worsened and their purses lightened by a healer. The wise traveller knows that sickness and injury is rooted chiefly in the mind and that only through self-discipline can pain, illness and injury be overcome.
