As a weak living human of flesh with an organism needing to be functionnal to survive, you can be inflicted by ailments when taking damage. Ailments are basically injuries/diseases that can impair/disable you. And of course be dangerous/lethal.
Ailments are divided in 3 categories, depending on their severity and the difficulty to heal them : minor, moderate and severe.
Finally, some undeads can poison upon harming.
Poisons are different from Ailments as they are harder to treat.
Poisons and most ailment are curable (healed after some time, usually some some minutes). They are also treatable (can be healed by a proper heal) more or less easily depending on their severity.
Minor ailments are injuries that are serious enough to impair you but overall not dangerous and easily treatable. Any soldier with Self-Aid can heal his minor ailments.
