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.

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.

Note - if you come across a flower that doesn't quite match the above listed flowers, or of a totally different sort, it will likely not allow you to MILL or DYE it. It may be already dyed or a part of a quest. If you're unsure, feel free to BUG the problem and the admin will look into it for you.

In general, most flowers used in Artistry are of such a fine quality that they look a specific way when you glance at them (a <hue-adjective> <color> <flower type>), for example, a vivid orange poppy or a pale pink rose. Those with sufficient skill in Artistry may alter those flowers to change their hues and colors to suit their desires.
