In our gameplay in Rev60, if you get shot by a laser enough times, you get staggered, and then you inject yourself with a hypo and it restores your health.
One of my jobs is working on a Rev60 tech manual so all this stuff actually has some scientific backing.
I've been looking around the internet, but I can't find anything that tells me what would actually happen (on a tissue or molecular level, ideally) when someone is shot with a laser. Anybody out there have any references on this?
Once I know the damage, then I can work on figuring out magical science to fix it.
Is it just burning tissue and melting flesh and denaturing proteins? Destroying nerves? Or is there more to it than that?
