Description:

Trauma has carefully researched risks, symptoms and treatments. Rules for diagnosis and surgery in medieval, modern and futuristic settings as well as healing spells. Each of five major body locations (head, chest, abdomen, arms & legs) have their own chapter with anatomy and injuries. Each injury described in detail with symptoms and treatments.

Tables are provided for each location with wounds for slash, pierce and crush with five degrees of severity, ranging from superficial to mortal. Plus two tables for electrical burns. All these provide vivid descriptions of wounds from the viewpoint of the combatants as well as medical descriptions of physical damage caused, such as broken bones and damaged organs. Designed to be handled after combat to keep it fast paced and not interfere with game mechanics.

Trauma was written so that it can be easily used with most roleplaying game systems. The difficulties and wound severities used are those from the Fantasy Dice system used in the Crimson Exodus roleplaying game, but they are briefly explained and easy to understand. Difficulties are simply: easy, tricky, hard, severe, extreme and insane. The wound severities are superficial, nasty, grievous, grim and mortal.

The PDF comes free with any order of the printed editions from DriveThruRPG/RPGNow.

Bring out the gory details of your game with Trauma.

This is the second edition version of Trauma.

This book is quite possibly my favourite purchase from this website. The book opens up with the usual "why this book was written and how it should be used" blurb; in this case, as inspiration to writers, to provide healers with something more interesting [...]

Essentially Trauma is a medically correct and system-agnostic version of Arms Law's critical hit tables. Each chapter details all the things that can go wrong with a hit location (Head, Chest, Abdomen, Arm, Leg), with tables at the end for random results. [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
