Ship Medic[edit]

This isn't finished yet, and this class is for a modern campaign. Ask your Gm if a Ship Medic is a class you would like to play.

There's the brave captains of the ship, the large cooks who slip rats in their soup, the first hands of the deck--what role am I missing? Ah yes, the Medic. When pirates battle head to head, injury after injury, the Ship Medic's are the one's in the background tending to their fallen comrades.

Creating a Ship Medic[edit]

Your role as a medic is to be a healer. You stand at the sidelines, and are quick on your toes to remove the injured from the line of fire and tend to them. Outside of combat you keep your eyes on your comrades' condition, tend to their little needs with simple herbs and you study the nature's medicine in order to keep everyone happy.

When creating your Ship Medic, you should ask yourself, what put your character in this position? Were they a rebel pirate who saw all their friends die and took on the roll? Were they a healer before who always wanted to travel over the ocean? Are they trying to escape their lives? Do they want to do good out of their heart or is there a catch? Talk to your GM and try to figure it out together.
