The wastelands of Russia are treacherous and dangerous. Prepare to get sick and to get hurt. Hoard medicine to increase your chances of survival!

Here is a list of diseases and traumas you may have to face.

Healing mechanics Edit

The percentage that is healed will affect the amount your activities are hindered.

For example, the effects of an arm laceration healed at 67% will be decreased to (100-67)% = 33% :

  • Search : -25% * 33% = -8.25%,
  • Attack : -25% * 33% = -8.25%,
  • Bleeding : +54 * 33% = +17.82 EmptyBleeding/day

Some effects are binary, like forbidden items, and will not disappear until the healing process is complete.

Traumas Edit

Traumas cause pain and can make some equipment unusable.

Note: Sleepy Sickness has been renamed Insomnia and is supposedly caused by bad sleeping habits. BUT, a big but, if you have enough Cigarettes, you basically do not need to sleep anymore. Just keep smoking and remember to heal your HP every now and then, with food (easy & cheap) or meds. One character had not slept for more than one year in game time, and only experienced one Insomnia. This is not the same as if you use some blue pills to reduce fatigue, as you will very likely get Insomnia around one month of no sleep.

Creaky foot Edit

Since I twisted my ankle, it hurts when I walk. Now it's getting worse, it feels like a big needle piercing my heel.

Tips :

  • Try to avoid to go about too much with a bicycle over extreme distances (> 500 km) or the same with a raft (looks like, with it, it has a smaller chance to suffer), one player’s one player’s opinion is, that it could appear/can happen during long journeys through the wasteland.
  • Can be healed with/needed for x10 Kazotein.
  • Duration of the healing process: approx. 180 days.
