I just re-read the book and found the Equipment-list and saw the word "required" when reading about healing wonds. I've so far not forced my players to use Bandages or Medical equipment to heal wounds but on the other hand they have been solving that issue with "I tear up my sleeve to craft a make-do bandage" without me asking them.
So my two questions are:
1) Do you guys require either Bandages or Medical equipment for anything and everything healing-related. To keep the game balance or some other reason.
2) If not, what situations are fine without them and do you require such items for Critical injuries?
