7.12 Flowers

Beautiful flowers grow all throughout Midkemia, from the most welcoming of environments to the tundras of the north. Skilled Artists have the proper knowledge of gathering flowers and using them to create beautiful floral decorations.

With the appropriate skill you may PICK or HARVEST flowers from around the world. Also, if you are a skilled Alchemist, you may sometimes find particularly beautiful flowers among the herbs that you harvest. Anyone may also WEAR <flower> IN HAIR or WEAR <flower> BEHIND EAR as well.

Much like herbs, flowers only grow in certain seasons and in certain locations so you should always be aware of the environment around you and the time of the year if you wish to find specific flowers. Reputedly, there are over two dozen types of flowers out there to be discovered.

Those with sufficient skill in Artistry may alter those flowers to change their hues and colors to suit their desires.
