9.3.4 THE HEALING SKILL (Secondary)

While this skill allows healing oneself, it is also an empathic ability 
whereby the healer takes the wounds or ailments of another into him or 
herself. Ailments are generally categorized by type (such as ailments of 
the nervous system, blood system, etc.) or by humours. Eventually, 
healers can heal deep wounds of others and even heal from afar. It should 
be noted that while it takes mana to heal oneself, healing another drains 
directly from the ego. There is always the danger of the healer suffering 
burn out, a painful experience that will result in being unable to use 
the healing skill for a period of time.
