NOT TODAY You can spend a doctor use on a Legionnaire who has taken level 4 harm on a mission, but you must do so quickly before they die. You treat them and reduce the wound to level 3 harm instead.
Your quick actions can stabilize the dying, but not those completely torn asunder by level 5 or greater harm. You may apply Not Today after resistances and armor, but only if the final result is lethal harm exactly.
- Has anyone found this ability useful?
It only triggers in a very specific scenario, but I suppose it’s a big deal when it does. Our medic hasn’t been able to use it yet and they’re wondering if it was a good pick. I suppose it will be useful when it saves a PC.
- It can’t be applied to squad deaths, right?
Since they don’t strictly take Level 4 harm, they just die. However, the Marshal has space on their sheet to track harm for Rookies and Soldiers. I suppose that’s mainly intended for tracking when they’re played as PCs, not as NPC squad members.
I wonder if this ability would be too powerful to use to save a squad member or other NPC, bringing them back from death but with terrible injuries.
