Healer

Description

A healer is an interactive NPC who heals the party, such as a cleric or an inkeeper. Usually, the player speaks with the healer and navigates a dialogue tree to receive healing. Sometimes, the healer may require compensation for their service in the form of money or an item.

Variables and Affordances

  • Heal Type: how fully does the healer heal the character?
  • Compensation: what, if anything, does the healer require as compensation?
  • NPC Behavior: does the healer serve other NPC functions?

Examples

  • Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn. The Priest of Ilmater will cast healing spells on individual members of the party after navigating a short dialogue tree. The price of the healing depends on the power of the spell chosen (heal type, compensation). Several different spells are available. The priest will provide healing as long as the player characters need and can afford it. The priest also serves as a merchant (NPC behavior) by selling healing potions and other similar consumable items.
