H is for Herbalist

Physicians and their students are few and far between in the WarHammer world, especially in rural areas. Also, there are not clerics healing wounds on a daily basis. Luckily, many rural areas have an Herbalist, probably living near where her precious herbs are found.

Herbalists have many of the skills usually sought after in physicians or clerics. They have Cure Disease and Heal Wounds skills. Some can even prepare poisons. In a game as deadly as WarHammer Fantasy Roleplay, these skills are invaluable.

The curings and healings are not magical in nature, so healed characters can’t necessarily jump right back into the midst of battle. Time is needed to heal all wounds, as the saying goes. However, healing is accelerated. Also, any healing is better than no healing…which is the fate of many characters.
