Does anyone know if back wounds actually, you know, do anything? I mean, they don't bleed, and I don't recall them hindering anything. Andy talk 15:16, 30 December 2006 (EST)

They will bleed at Rank 3, but they don't interfere with much. However if you have both a Rank 2 back wound and a Rank 2 ab or chest wound, you will have difficulties climbing and such. carabele 15:33, 30 December 2006 (EST)
I think Rank 2 back wounds will prevent you from dragging things, too. Dan 17:46, 25 March 2008 (EDT)

Is this article meant to be as vague and general as it is? Sure, a lot of rank 1 wounds have "almost" no effect on a character, but many rank 1 wounds have noticeable effect. The game tells you when your injuries are hindering your hiding (minor leg/eye/head wounds), and LMASTER SENSE will certainly tell you when wounds/scars are affecting your ability to disarm/pick.

I don't think anyone wishes it to be as vague and general as it is, but it is only as detailed as how much information is known about Wounds that the last person to edit it knows. Generally speaking, if not many editors know many specifics about Wounds, and their affects on mechanics, then it isn't going to be updated much and/or be as detailed as some would wish. I personally do not know enough specifics that I would want to update the article myself because I would feel uncomfortable with possibly giving skewed or false information. Feel free to update the article with as much more detailed information that you personally know, though. It would be greatly appreciated. Adam talk 16:25, 27 March 2008 (EDT)
