    Item creation powers are some of the most overpowered powers, as theoretically, they could be used to mimic any other power.

      Alchemy (or Herbalism) can achieve age retarding results with level 4 (one month of effective aging for every year of actual aging). Level 5 would probably reduce it to one week per year. Level 6 makes you unaging.

      Weight loss would probably be level 1 (as there are mundane methods of weight loss), with level 1 allowing one pound per day of treatment (each procedure creating one month of a weight loss regime). Level 2 would probably allow five pounds per day (each procedure creating one week of a weight loss regime). Level 3 would probably allow 25 pounds per day (each procedure creating one day of a weight loss regime).

        Hmmnn Thanks,

        Is Fertilizer an appropiate effect for Herbalism?

        Their were rotational crops in the 1800's using plants that help replenish the soil, because what they were trying to grow were plants that drained it.

        I think it was George Washington Carver Read about in gradeschool it said that.

          Well, mundane fertilizers are really good, even when you are talking about organic fertilizers. For example, there are oganic rice farmers that produce 20 metric tons of rice per hectare per growing season (around 1,000 bushels per hectare per growing season). How much more would you need?

            to be effective working on barrent or poisoned land, reclaiming it?

              Probably, but needing multiple roles over extended periods at a high difficulty, I think 🤔

              What is tolerance? It is the consequence of humanity. We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other's folly. That is the first law of nature.

                ok on herbalism? how well could it preserve a birch? something i've wondered

                or would a kinfolk working as a headmaid or housekeeper be advised to just regularly replace it like everyone else does?

                  If you are asking about preserving cut logs indoors, then the best way to do it is cut the tree during the winter when the sap is not running and then season it in a cool, dry place to keep bacteria or mold out.

                    was actually thinking of a "Birch rod"
