In my newly started story/novel, my protagonist (average male in his 20s) needs to be wounded by a cold weapon at a range (eg arrows/throwing spears/whatever you can think of). Can you give me some suggestions on this? I just can't think of any wound that is... 1. Serious enough to hinder his movements but does little damage to his CNS (Central Nervous System) so that he can fight on for 1 hour or so before collapsing. 2. Recoverable with no long term effects. 3. Recoverable within 1-2 weeks in a modern hospital. I have thought of arrow wounds but these tend to do excessive damage to muscle tissue. This will be bad for recovery. Do you have any ideas? If so please leave a comment and tell me about it.
