First Aid is a free skill pick. A character using the First Aid skill is able to pause the Death Count of another character for as long as they give them their attention. While performing First Aid, a character cannot perform any other task (as a rule of thumb they may not use any other skill, but we leave it to the player to decide what is appropriate in any given circumstance). They may talk and move as normal but must maintain contact with the character receiving treatment for the skill to function. If the First Aider stops treating a wounded character then the Death Count resumes from the point it stopped.
