Characteristic Point Recovery

Recommended Posts

Is there a natural rate of recovery for points of characteristics lost due to disease or attacks like the bloodbird's blood drain, or can these only be recovered via a Recover Health spell?

You can use Training or Research to increase/recover some of the characteristics (see RQG p417-8) including STR, CON, DEX and CHA.  POW can be regained through subsequent use/experience (POW gain rolls).  Losses to INT or SIZ are largely permanent without use of magic.  But there is no natural rate of recovery.

Under Wraith, it says "If an adventurer survives a wraith’s attack, the lost characteristic points are regained at their healing rate per week. They can also be restored with a Restore Health spell.".

I would assume the same applies to similar attacks, for example a Bloodbird's Blood drain.

Lunes, Selenes, Babaka Fegh, Dancers in Darkness and Vampires drain Magic Points, which presumably regenerate as any spent Magic Points.
