Inspired by a prior thread and my own sense the apothecary advance scheme feeling a bit flat, I propose this list of additions and changing ranks of talents:
Rank 1. Last Man Standing 500
Rank 2. Duty Unto Death 500
Rank 3. Flesh Render 800 (moved from Rank 8)
Rank 4. Swift Attack 500 (moved from Rank 6)
Rank 5. Unchanged.
Rank 6. Stalwart Defense 500
Rank 8. Foresight 800
Duty unto Death should encourage a solid willpower in apothecaries and suits their devotion to duty. The others represent having to survive in the midst of combat. Waiting until a battle brother bleeds out is counter to how the the apothecary is described in background. Bearing in mind that most campaigns will see use of the first few ranks but not necessarily the last few.
