GM Dictionary: Medicine #2

This month the GMD will be taking a look at medicine. This will include all kinds of words, many of which are used on fairly regular basis in the world of D&D. But what are salves and poultices? This month let’s narrow it down a bit!


Placebo

This is a medicine which is not actually a medicine, but believed to be. When a person’s symptoms are mitigated or health improves from something that is falsely believed to be medicinal, it is known as a placebo effect.


This is a mini-article series featuring short explanations for words more commonly used in RPGs (or potentially so!) than normal conversation. Each month will hold a different theme and each weekday will have a different word. Note: these are personal, simple breakdowns and not perfect. Please tell me if I am mistaken and I will work to correct it! For anyone looking for a collected work please check out our Patreon. All patrons get a PDF collected copy each month!
