The Syka Herbarium

A Syka based shop that sells products created from herbs and other plants, presently specialising in teas, oils and insect repellent. Next to the simple dwelling that is the home of Sophia Sunshore is the lab where most of the products are created and stored. Between the structures sits a linking platform on which an assortment of plants are growing in pots to be used in various botanical recipes. The list of products is always growing as new things are discovered, and Sophia is more than happy to create a custom blend for anyone who asks. She sells her products to the people in Syka, and also through the Mercantile for export.

Damn close on this one. You need to include the cost of the items you offer in your price list in your assets section. You mention them in your assets but you need to account for their cost. Purchase each item you offer for sale, in your asset section with the what it costs for a single instance of that item. So for example, if you offer a certain herb, pay the cost for one piece of that herb in your asset list and add it to the total cost to start up your business.

I have updated the original post with a list of the herbs Sophia will be starting with. Hopfully they are priced correctly - I assumed most of the usual daily herbs would fall under the common category and priced them at 5sm.
As her knowledge grows she will purchase more (I can deduct from her ledger when the time comes). I didn't want to start out with herbs and spices above her skill levels.

The extra 9GM takes her over the Syka loan cap, so I am happy to take this straight off her ledger.
NOTE: During the Fall Sophia is a Dhani, specifically a golden eyelash viper.

I'm giving this business conditional approval. Sophia has a 3/100 in Herbalism so I don't think that's enough skill to successfully run an Herbalist business. She has grades pending to raise that, but until she gets competent in Herbalism... I'll let her take a season to build the business up, organize her recipes and supplies, and launch it in Fall 519. :)

She has the summer to gain the lores of keeping potted plants alive, drying herbs, making teas, essential oils, soaps, lotions and balms as well as Insect Repellent.
