@gtimms: I'd like to add a huge SPOILER warning here, and then go ahead an answer your question. The idea is that the Elder was not alone in the beginning, rather he was the leader of a team of scientists who have died off during the years. Perhaps this is not entirely clear in the backstory texts, sorry about that!
I think that Parasite do this:
You are damaged and have 3/4(max) Strength. You meet Zone-ghul and steal Strength from him. Now you have 4/4 Strength and ZG has 1 Strength less. You must be at Arm's Length.
So, the first power allows the Parasite Mutant to heal themselves then, correct? They pick what stat is damaged and then takes that stat from the enemy to heal themselves. Then the enemy must heal that stat back up by their normal means?
The third power states:
You can even heal serious or critical injuries – this will cost you 2 and 4 MP, respectively, but not damage you.
I assume this means Serious Injury costs 2MP to heal. Critical Injury costs 4MP? I know what a Critical Injury is, there's a fun table for that, but what is a "serious injury".
1°) What really happens when a Chronicler fails his Inspire roll for helping another character?
2°) It is written in rules that a Heal roll can me made for healing a broken Character, making recovering a number of attribute points equal to the number of succes rolled. But can this Heal skill also be used for healing a non-broken Character? Can we Heal someone before he is broken?
It's a large place that has been wiped by a huge blast explosion with very intensive heat. All is flat and the sand has melted into a huge glass field. You cannot hide in such a place and there is nothing to find.
