Malva walks into the inn.

"Hi Torvallis!, do you wanna do some gathering?"

"Yes, let's eat first!"

The two eat their lunch and then head up into the woods. Eventually they happen upon an orcthorn.

"Now see here Torvallis!, this is an orcthorn and as the name suggests, it's thorny. You can pick it using gloves or forceps, but if you don't have any of those, you can pick it by holding the flat side of the leaf."

((OOC: I should've remembered that))
"Well in your garden, you've probably been using a pretty decent fertilizer, or at the very least have some very good composted soil from all the kitchenwork you do. Those great growing conditions will make a home-grown orcthorn have much fuller, wider leaves, while a wild orcthorn has these narrow, spindly leaves."

"Alright, now let's keep looking."

The two wander deeper into the woods. This time they find a dwarfnettle plant.

"This one's a dwarfnettle; it stings to the touch. Most people pick it using gloves or tools, but some people try to build a tolerance to it."

"Uh- okay I'll go look for some sorrel."

Malva wanders off for a moment and comes back with a couple of plain, red-veined leaves.

"These need to be chewed up and put on the sting. Can you do that, or should I?"

"Do you think you can? That should've dulled the pain a bit, but you may still need to be medic'd."

[Oh! It the thread didn't turn orange last post...]

"Alllright then."

The two move on up the trail. Eventually they find another flora.

"Look here, this one is a moonflower. It's a little past its prime; we'd better collect the seed rather than try to use it as an herb."

"Yeah; as you can see here it has a seed pod that we can either tie some fabric around and wait for it to drop its seeds, or we can try to cut them out."

Malva takes out her scalpel and carefully cuts into the seed pod. She pops out a couple of seeds and puts them in her bag.

"Sounds like you've had a bit of a revelation..."

(Signing off on Herbalism III for that, but you canĀ  keep going if you want)
