The Devotee – “Dedication through spiritual strength”
It’s not easy to survive in the wasteland. Every day people
succumb to illness or injury. Devotees have dedicated their
lives to studying medicine, often healing others for very
little (if anything) in return. This is mostly due to their
devotion to their chosen god, or devout belief in their own
ethical code. The amount of knowledge necessary makes
them highly valued and few people are willing to cut them
down, favoring capture. Not all are benevolent saints, of
course. With the knowledge of medicine comes the
knowledge of chems, and while some use them strictly for
medicinal purposes, others hawk their own concoctions to
anyone who has the silver to pay.
1st rank- Field Triage: The Devotee has seen a lot of gruesome injuries in his day, and can confidently tackle ailments ranging from gunshot & stab wounds to radiation sickness, even during a firefight.
2nd rank- The Earth Provides: Devotees have an almost spiritual connection with the flora of the wasteland. They are experts at surveying the land to find the right herb or root to help heal and mitigate pain.
3rd rank- Hands of a Surgeon: The Devotee has learned to perform more complicated surgeries, reattaching limbs or removing necrotic flesh, as well as mastering the art of setting broken bones with well-crafted splints.
4th rank- Mixologist: Through enough experimentation and communing with the gods in an “altered” state of mind, the Devotee has come to understand the basics of chemistry and can concoct a variety of chems to aid or harm. They are always searching for more formulas.
5th rank- Chemical Mastery: The Devotee has attained the highest level of knowledge in the field of chemistry, and can now create the most complex chems as well as immensely useful substances, ranging from explosives to refined gasoline.
