Fractures are often caused by falling from great heights, which greatly reduces the player's movement speed. A fracture will heal on its own over time, however a splint can be used to reduce this greatly, by approximately 10-fold. This can be improved further with the use of a comfrey poultice. Upon successfully healing a fracture, the player will receive first aid experience.

Splints cannot be found in the world and therefore can only be obtained through crafting.
- Since the weight of a splint is 1.0, it is technically heavier to hold a crafted one than carry its individual parts, however, this only holds true for using a Sturdy Stick or Tree Branch to craft it.
