A Path to Steam
Defaults: IQ-4 or Farming -3.
This is the ability to care for plants on a small scale. (For large-scale crops, use Farming skill, p. 194.) A skill roll lets you grow food, medicinal herbs, attractive flowers and trees, etc.
Modifiers: -2 to -4 for an unfamiliar method (e.g., hydroponics or bonsai when you’re used to your back yard), crop (herbs, trees, and vegetables all differ), or geographical region. These three penalties are cumulative!
