Herbs and Plants

There are countless examples of various herbs found in Mizahar. The following are examples of some of the more unique herbs that are known to possess a number of special uses that many throughout Mizahar take advantage of. This is not meant to be a full, exhaustive list of all herbs and plants one may find but does give a wide range of some things that stand out.

Botanists know how to grow and identify plants and often the proper means of harvest. Herbalists know how to utilize what parts of plants to turn them into additional useful items like medicines, beauty products, etc. Philterists can turn properties of plants into potions and brews ie philters. If a plant is listed as L1 Herbalism to identify and harvest, one can assume safely that L1 Botanists can also identify and harvest plants. Herbalists cannot grow or properly care for plants without Botany knowledge whereas Botanists can't utilize plant properties without Herbalism knowledge.

Herbs are listed with their frequency (how easy are they to come by, how difficult to identify), common locales (where do they grow), harvest type (annual: every autumn, perennial: midsummer, biennial: every other midsummer), Cost (how much for what parts) and description. The description will include appearance as well as common uses and any other special notes. A special note on frequency: Frequency is classified from common to very rare and is tied to the Locale. Just because an herb is common does not mean that it can be found anywhere (in the wild or for sale). If an herb is common, it is common in the locale listed for that particular herb. Outside of that locale, consider the frequency to be one category higher as far as finding it for sale. For example, an herb common to temperate areas would be uncommon when sold outside those areas and an uncommon would become rare. If this would take the frequency past rare then it is unavailable for sale in that particular area. With each increase in frequency such as mentioned above, the cost of a particular plant/herb doubles. Thus if a temperate herb that normally costs 1 gm is sold outside of a temperate area, the cost becomes 2 gm.

Infusion: Pouring hot or cold water over leaves, stems, seeds, etc.

Maceration: Soaking in a chosen oil for extended periods of time

Decoction: Boiling leaves, stems, seeds, etc.

Please note that the above processes are different from those involved in Philtering. Philtering can however aid one greatly in the practice of herbalism and allows a different variety of possibilities using the following list of plants and herbs. In many cases, Philtering, Poison and/or Medicine skills may be required to get the most out of a particular herb/plant.

One of the many gifts granted to the peoples of Mizahar by Nikali, Goddess of Slaves, Pleasure and Addition are the various addictive substances known as drugs. The use of these psychoactive substances to have fun, for the experience, or to enhance an already positive experience is not all that uncommon. Drugs are made from all manner of source material although plants and certain animal parts are the most common. The most common forms of drug administration include Inhalation, snorting, chewing and swallowing. Some drugs are also administered through injection although syringes are large and extremely uncomfortable to use thus reducing the overall common use of this method. Of course there are numerous other ways to administer a drug; they are not limited to those mentioned above.

Drug use on Mizahar is NOT illegal. While anyone can freely engage in the use of any drug they wish, use of it among children is highly frowned on in most racial societies. Due to the general commonality of drug use throughout Mizahar, the cost of many drugs is relatively affordable, by the dose, to most. Multiple doses however can get rather costly. The effects of a single dose of a given drug, unless otherwise noted, lasts anywhere from 1-6 hours on average; sometimes longer and sometimes shorter.

Note that a character's regular drug use can quickly lead to addiction and may end requiring the character to include drug cost into their Living Expenses.

The following drug listings include the Name, Use, Description, Effects, Skill to Create and Cost. This section is an active Work-In-Progress. The current listing of drugs is for Wind-Reach only. More will be added in the coming days.
