Recently, I have seen a number of comments - in various threads - about how "wasted" the Refresh action is. Mostly this appears to be from the perspective of too weak. I'm thinking about a house rule for those times when magic (or super-science) just isn't an option.
Just a Scratch
Sometimes all that blood isn't important. After all, it's just a scratch.
Upon the successful completion of a Refresh action, the character rolls an action die and receives that many wounds plus half the normal vitality per level times the threat level. Additionally, the character may loose one Graded condition.
Meh, the wording's not what I want but the gist if it is there. (At least, I think it is given how addled my brain feels right now.)
