Environments such as the sewers, or dirty areas could increase the odds of your wound being infected, as well as bites from animals as oppose to weapons, being covered in layers of filth while having open wounds is probably a lot worse than having some dust with a few open wounds. Endurance, and clean areas lower the risk of infections. My idea to thwart off infections are the antibody nanos, being healed by doctors, or disinfecting your own wounds with some kind of alcohol, the last one is cheapest, but still has a small risk of the wound being infected, the higher the user’s medical skill, the lower the chance. These infections would not be immediate, but my idea for the effects is, they slow down the rate at which your wounds heal, or lower your max hp until the infection is treated, or goes away on it’s own(endurance would play a role in how long/how badly the infection affected you) it doesn’t need to lower your max hp to half, but even leaving you at ‘slight discomfort’ or ‘slight pain’ depening on /what/ is infected. Get a laceration infected? That’s gonna suck real bad. Get a small cut infected? Ehh, it’ll suck and all that, but not nearly as much. The extreme of this is further reducing stats for those who have infections, if you have an infected cut on your foot, running isn’t gonna feel very good, sure you could do it, but depending again on what the wound is, you get varying degrees of penalized stats(These should not be anything major as that would promote cubing until you are over the infection). Treatment when you have an infection would be something along the lines of antibiotics(which could add to the chemistry job maybe?) Treatment from doctors, staying in sanitized areas, and rest, antibiotics being the fastest of course, and rest in a sanitized area being slower, but still effective. These negative affects don’t need to be so major people lock themselves away in their room until they are over the infection, but something to make them think twice about leaving that rat bite untreated after a wade through the sewers. Not sure if this is a good idea or not, just wanna hear some input. I don’t think bruises really get infected, so not sure how the balancing would go there, maybe add some kind of swelling or spraining?
