I'm not wedded to those numbers, I just wanted to get a feel for the assumptions we would have to make to get a realistic figure. Whatever the average you get though, they won't be evenly spread throughout the clans and tribes. They're likely to congregate round holy sites, temples, etc.

I make people roll on their First Aid roll to successfuly cast healing spells. They can use ceremony with it though.

P.S. You may well get enemies of the slain sending spirits to chase off healers. How about having the slain enemies of the deceased from the same battle haunting the body?
