Where it says... Base Skill:16% +4% Per Level of Experience and then it says...+14% if the character is also a Medical Doctor.

Does that that mean my character being a Body-Fixer, can add that +14% to the base skill?

I know it sounds so simple, it's easy to figure out, but I'm just perplexed as to why this gets done differently from the other medical skills.

The +14% applies to anyone with the skill Medical Doctor and I believe the reason for the bonus is to separate those attempting this that are doctors vs those that are just paramedics or even with just first aid. That was always my interpretation.

Thanks for clarifying that for me and just so you know. Medical Doctor is one of the Mandatory O.C.C. skills for Body-Fixer. So, I added that bonus.

Like I said that was just my impression. This is a skill that is in several games all with the same bonus for an MD so it just makes sense but don't mistake it for a definitive answer.

Well, seeing as my G.M. is unresponsive to that question. It seems like the best way to go.
