There seem to be two extreme schools of thought on the matter of healing in

keep in mind that no amount of healing can make up for the fact that a
single triple damage roll can kill you outright, a point not addressed by
any in the extreme "right wing" of healing. 
Interestingly, my biggest objection to not having a Healing spell has
nothing to do with the points discussed. Rather it is the inherent,
fundamentally violent illogic of magical healing not existing in the first

OK!  I admit it, I used to be a NAZI. A real  "At 1 your unconscious and at 0 your dead, and if your not man enough to deal with it you can go play D&D with the grade school kids!" kind of guy.

Now I like to think I've moved to the middle (at 0 your only mostly dead, and under proper conditions you can heal 1 whole point a day) but maybe not as far to the middle as I think.  The mostly dead option was adopted precisely to address the one bad roll and your gone issue, so I agree combat is still quite serious.

Finally I do find your "there should be magic healing" argument somewhat compelling - after all a healing potion can't require that much magic knowledge, since any master physicker can brew them.  So I think an argument could be made that a heal potion equivalent spell should exist.  

Off the top of my head, lets say it is an iq 14 or so spell, and it can heal 1 pt of damage and costs say 5 or 10 fatigue to cast, that probably would not be too unbalancing.

I don't think I will use it in my current campaign (it has been pretty low-magic so far) but I may try it out in the future.


PS good luck redecorating
