Mass Effect 2164
These wounds are extremely serious, even for Krogan, because most of them cannot heal these wounds normally. What causes Aggravated Damage varies, but fire is almost universally bad for the health. Also an attack from a modern gun against a part of your body that isn’t properly protected causes Aggravated Damage.
- If a character is subjected to an attack that is Exceptional Success and the source is Aggravated Damage, that character takes a permanent injury, A very common is the loss of a limb.
- Aggravated Damage heals at the rate of 1 pt a week. This is only AFTER medical treatment of the injury, and must be looked after during the healing time.
- Aggravated Damage is not affected by Medi-Gel, unless there is an Exceptional Success. Even then the gel only has the ability to reduce 1 pt of Aggravated to 1 pt of Lethal over the course of an hour.
- If a character takes more Aggravated Damage than it would take to incapacitate them, they die.
