Broken bones/concussions/stitched up gashes are fun to emote with, so long as you're either independent...
Or your PC clan superiors go along with it, instead of ignoring that for the codedly 'no broken bones' thing and send you to your death because you refuse to break character in lieu of the code... </bitterness> lol.
If a splint object can't be found, wear a bandage over the broken area, emoted it as being a splint of the sorts in your actions. Unless your character's a masochist, use a lot of pain, seeing as how pain killers aren't exactly -too- common. Unless you're not in Allanak, and then some spices could dull the pain.
Feel free to curse people, VNPCs NPCs PCs, who might bump into you in that crowded tavern, get some conflict started. :wink: If it's a broken arm, strip and fall on it, and proceed to roll around in the street screaming and cursing up a sandstorm!
