20.4.4 Cooking Approval Rules
Cooking rules are, by necessity, somewhat different than other tradeskill rules. Cooked items are meant to be consumed, after all! I. Cooking designs must use organic materials that can be found in Aetherius. II. You MAY describe a dish, bowl, plate or other serving implements in the design. III. Unlike in other tradeskills, written words in the design are acceptable in Cooking. Example: The rim of the ceramic dish holding this poached fish reads "Salmon Surprise". IV. Eaten messages may be assigned to your item. You may have up to THREE messages total, however you need not use all of them, or any of them if you prefer not to. If you DO choose to use eaten messages, remember that you must have a matching "room view" for every "person view" that you describe (so if you fill in 1P, you must also fill in 1R). V. Eaten messages cannot dictate whether the person eating the food will enjoy it. VI. Cooking items don't need to match the recipe exactly which they are modeled on, but they should be close. V. Drinks are not crafted in cooking. A separate tradeskill, Libations, exists for this purpose. A note on eating messages: Eating messages are a crucial part of successful recipes. If you choose to utilize this aspect of your cooking permit, be sure you have a thorough understanding of their use and triple-check their accuracy before you submit your recipe, as they are the most likely place for error. Please review HELP SCRIPTING for more information on the technical aspects of them. Note that any 'forced' actions placed in eating messages should be ruled by common sense. If the food is messy, it is likely the individual eating it will need to wipe up. It is less likely that everyone eating your chocolate will have a pocket they can stuff the wrapper in, or that they'd even choose to do so. Keep your forced actions to a sensible minimum.
