Description
Before the advent of modern toxicology there was a (possibly justifiable) paranoia about poisons. Symptoms could look like very common ailments, and ingredients were fairly common to extremely common. People went to great lengths to avoid being poisoned, and someone who could claim that they had a cure could make their fortune. Class will not be recorded.
