Your character is susceptible to injury and disease. Fall damage may cause broken legs and require a splint to fix, getting shot or slashed with a sword may create a wound and need a bandage, spending time near animals may cause you to contract Pox requiring medicine, etc.

Vaccinations and correctly healing infections increases your resistance to that disease. Dying and getting a disease reduces it.

All remedies can be bought from the Doctor’s at the market in spawn, and some basic cures such as splints and bandages can be crafted. You can use /disease check to see your current health status.
