New Equipment Adapted from Dungeon World

Bandages: Bandages are used to patch up wounds, stop bleeding, et cetera, after an injury. It takes about 1 minute to apply bandages, and heals 1d4 points of damage sustained during the recent combat, but bandages can never completely heal a target. Info: 3 uses, 5 gp, 0 weight.

Herbal Poultices: Herbal poultices are bandages suffused with healing herbs. Its takes about 1 minute to apply herbal poultices, but the medical effects take longer to work. Initially, an herbal poultice works like bandages. Combined with uninterrupted rest, herbal poultices increase natural healing to 1d4+1 hit points per day. Info: 2 uses, 10 gp, 1 lbs.

Yesterday, Michael, an old friend from junior high and high school, came by with his oldest son to visit and game with me and my son. Mike and I probably haven't gamed together since the early 80s. We had a rollicking good time with me GMing a dwarf cleric, a human thief, and a human fighter through an improv-game session using Michael Prescott's A Litany of Scratches. Huzzah.

Shameless Self-Promotion  - 
 
The barabashka haunts four game systems. Boo!
Meet the barabashka, a horrible poltergeist, just one of the monsters you might have the misfortune to meet while exploring a ghost-haunted ruin in the world of Buyan. Anger, remorse, guilt. Some emotions live on after death, coalescing into an invisible, malevolent entity.

Vermicious knids descend from space, seeking to devour all forms of life weaker than themselves. They are huge and dark and egg-shaped when at rest, and they are completely adapted for life in a vacuum. From the planet Vermes, the knids left their home after feasting their world bare. Naturally malleable, knids attack by growing claws and fangs as needed. They fly by growing wings.

HD 8; AC 3 [16]; Atks 1d6 claws and fangs (1d6+1); SV 8 (13 vs. fire); Special adapted to live in a vacuum, malleable form, vulnerable to fire (+25% damage); MV 9/9 (flying); AL C; CL/XP 10/1,400

That's a thought, but I lack the equipment. There were three of us in the first session. My character is an Ex-Con Now on the Payroll geared toward light hand-to-hand combat and fast talking.
