Playing without a Cleric

Most times, in F20 games, playing with a cleric is a forgone conclusion. It is one of the most, if not THE most, vital roles in the dungeon delving party. But your 13th Age party just _might_ be absent a cleric...what then?

My main group lacks a cleric, but the commander gets the job done. Plus, the paladin/fighter in the party has such a high AC, he often doesn’t need much healing.

In my work group, players come and go each week as their schedules allow. Lately, we haven’t had a healer of any kind in the party. The group relied on their rallies and have made it a point to stock up on more healing potions when they get to the nearest town.

I use Battle Healing in my 13th Age Glorantha games. I find that combat is still more frenetic without a healer, but Battle Healing does help prevent PCs from dying.
