Wood Skin health ratings clarification

The spell says that its test adds result to health ratings. Those are unconscious and death ones? No wounds, for example.

In first edition of Earthdawn it added to Death and Unconsciousness Ratings, and that is how I would interpret it now as well.

This is correct. Make a Wood Skin Test and add that result to the Death and Uncon Ratings for the duration. There's a mention of Wood Skin on p367, in the Dispel Magic mechanic, that specifies this.

Thank you for clarification.

(I also think, I put question under a wrong system, I hope this can be corrected)

You'll find Wood Skin in both Earthdawn and 1879, and as far as I could see, they were worded identically in those games. So the question isn't wrong in this section, regardless of what game you were thinking of when asking... :-)

The only real difference is that in Earthdawn, it's a Talent, where in 1879, it's a Skill.
