Insert this into the Roaming Mend state’s notebox. Change the values to fit your game.

<Custom Apply Effect>
// Set the default charges to 4.
this._roamingMendCharges = 4;
// Calculate the amount of the heal.
this._roamingMendHeal = origin.mat * 4;
// Sets the counter to display the charges.
this.setStateCounter(stateId, 'x' + 4);
</Custom Apply Effect>

<Custom Remove Effect>
// Removes the stored charge information.
this._roamingMendCharges = undefined;
// Removes the stored heal information.
this._roamingMendHeal = undefined;
</Custom Remove Effect>

<Custom Deselect Effect>
// Check if the target took HP damage and has more than 1 HP.
if (this.isHpEffect() && this.isDamage() && target.hp > 0) {
  // Get the stored healing value. If none, it will default to 1.
  var heal = target._roamingMendHeal || 1;
  // Plays an animation on the target.
  // Heals the target's HP.
  // Starts the healing popup on the target.
  // Clears the target's results.
  // Calculates the next charge amount.
  var charges = target._roamingMendCharges - 1;
  // Removes the state from the target.
  // Check if there are more than 0 charges.
  if (charges > 0) {
    // Create an empty array.
    var members = [];
    // Loop through each of the target's alive allies.
    for (var i = 0; i < target.friendsUnit().aliveMembers().length; ++i) {
      // Set the potential variable to the current looped ally.
      var potential = target.friendsUnit().aliveMembers()[i];
      // If the ally doesn't exist, move onto the next.
      if (!potential) continue;
      // If the ally is the same as the target, move onto the next.
      if (potential === target) continue;
      // If the ally is already affected by a different Roaming Mend effect, move onto the next.
      if (potential.isStateAffected(stateId)) continue;
      // If the ally's HP is at zero (hence dead), move onto the next.
      if (potential.hp <= 0) continue;
      // Now that all checks have been cleared, put the potential ally into the members array.
    // Get a random member of the members array.
    var member = members[Math.floor(Math.random() * members.length)];
    // Check if the random member exists.
    if (member) {
      // Play an animation on that random member.
      // Move the Roaming Mend state onto that random member.
      // The random member's charges get updated.
      member._roamingMendCharges = charges;
      // The healing amount gets transfered over to the random member.
      member._roamingMendHeal = heal;
      // Sets the charge counter for the random member.
      member.setStateCounter(stateId, 'x' + charges);
</Custom Deselect Effect>

Happy mending!
