So as far as I can tell healers are quite rare in the peninsula, HM, her colleagues and their apprentices at the HT (such as Sumiko) being a notable exception. The question is, how valuable is their power in a world where child mortality rates hover around 50% and few people ( well few humans, elves and dwarves are hardier) live to their sixties? Could they lower that child mortality rate to less than 1% and extend the averrage lifespan by decades? Reverse athrithis and other age related wear and tear? How do you convert that power into influence without becoming a monster? Do you extend the right to healing beyond your own people and allies, to neutrals and enemies?
