Even in a world as chaotic as Azoth can be, some things are still universal, and this is one: a good doctor is hard to find. Even in situations where the lives of others might be held cheaply, such as when captured by bandits, if you make it clear that you are a healer, most foes will decline to do serious violence to you. They’re likely to put you to work, but that’s better than a sword in the gut or confinement in a pit or cell — and it’s an opportunity for you to do something to rescue your friends.
