Subj: Gathering Skillset!

Hey all!

We're happy to announce the (somewhat belated) release of Gathering!

Essentially, it isn't very different than mining or choping before, but as the first step to overhauling the game's commodity system, I've worked the existing system into a skillset that has benefits similar to Fishing. For every skillrank you rise, you'll get a cache of credits and experience. As the rest of the commodity system gets set out, you'll also note greater skill leads to rising chances of finding rare minerals in mining veins and increased returns in both mining and woodcutting. This system will be soon replacing the existing method of going to shops to acquire most crafting materials, so now is a great opportunity to get a head-start on your skills!

This skillset is immediately available to everyone, so grab an ax or pickaxe and get to work! For more information and the commands to use, see HELP GATHERING.
