Medic rank 2 allows a character to bandage a wound using an "actual bandage." Would it be possible to use duct tape as the "actual bandage?" Now, before anyone says that it's not a bandage, I'd like to point out that duct tape has been used as an emergency bandage by military and mercenary personnel for decades. Also, I'd like to say that it would be used over the top of clothing to keep it out of direct contact with skin. I think that this would bring another aspect of realism to the game without endangering anyone's safety, so I figured I'd give it a shot.

One of the things that Spite strives to achieve is a certain level of immersion whenever possible. While it may be 'realistic' to use duct tape in a pinch, it looks less immersive.; that's why the text says 'actual bandage.' Many of the players who are playing 'medic' type characters use gauze or wraps from their local dollar store, and you're certainly welcome to reuse your props.
