Permanent injuries are effects that drain stats until treated. Drained stats will show up as red on the character screen. You can see a list of injuries you're currently afflicted with on the "Kills & Injuries" page in the log book.

  • Can be inflicted by critical hits from enemies, as well as critical failures with some weapons (such as firearms)
  • Scars will typically drain one point of beauty until treated
  • The Heal skill with bandages can be used to treat injuries
  • NPC's with the heal skill can also be paid to heal the player
    • This still depends on the heal skill of the NPC - most herbalists' skills are too low to remove some injuries
    • Doc Roberts in Shrouded hills has a high heal skill can remove most injuries
