Improvised bandages

Postby Vitello » Tue Jun 17, 2014 3:12 am

An ability I would like to see is a way for bushcrafters and perhaps Udemi/druids is the ability to craft bandages from natural matter and forage. Being secluded from normal society normal bandages aren't always an option. Moss and sap perhaps?

Requirements
Herbalism:?
Firstaid: ?

Not very sanitary. Perhaps one could use leaves of sufficiently large herbs and apply those directly? Or you know, you could skin one of your kills, clean the skin and cut it into strips and use those to tie on a large leaf and poultice. You could use sinew as well.

Certain plants have natural anti-septic qualities.

WHY NOT USE CLAY? THAT'S HOW A LOT OF PEOPLE USED TO CLOSE WOUNDS AND APLY POULTICES WAY BACK WHEN.

It doesn't hve to be clay, per say. Mud has properties that help heal wounds and other things like bee stings and snake bites. If not completely heal, mud can seal the wound or bite long enough to get to an infirmary.

You overhear the following rumor:
"There's an old man that can sometimes be seen walking around with a trunk, rumor has it he takes it to the stables and gets naked in front of the horses before changing clothes from the trunk."
You think to yourself, "Who could that old man be?"

Not very sanitary, so use a leaf! You crack me up.

Anyways, I'm resurrecting this dead topic because I would love to see this. Mud/clay/sinew/whatever I just want to see unique wilderness bandages that only certain guilds can craft. Maybe make the health regen 1/2 normal or something but do it please!

Was this idea still planning on being implemented?
