Your maximum increases 5% for each level up to a point, then 10% each level up of survival skill starting at 100%.
Exhaustion will increase because of (rates ?) :
- Some weather event
Exhaustion will decrease because when (rates ?) :
- Consuming foods that reduces exhaustion.
- Using medicines that reduces exhaustion.
