Seasonal Skill Prompts

Skill Prompts are a monthly feature that allow your character to gain skills in different ways. Each character can only complete ONE prompt per season, and can be completed either in a solo post or in a group thread. You cannot claim these posts for other skill points! Please note that as long as you complete the objectives, you're free to be creative with your posts and have some fun with these prompts!

For solo posts, you must complete the entire prompt in one post. Of course, you can use these posts as thread starters and continue the thread as usual, but no other skills may be claimed by you from that thread.

For group threads, the word count is cumulative and will be counted over all participants. However, participants must be ACTIVELY trying to complete the skill prompt for their words to count. Note that group threads have a maximum of 3 allowed participants unless otherwise specified.

Word Count: 800 (Solo) or 1500 (Group)
Location: Anywhere!
1. Find a patient (or maybe you are the patient) who needs healing, based on an ailment or injury that can be attributed to the season. (i.e. a seasonal cold, or an injury from a predator who has migrated due to the season, or an injury due to the landscape itself like a fall or drowning, etc).
2. Be specific in what you're doing to help them.
3. Will the treatment be successful? If uncertain, assess the likelihood the patient will recover.

Reward: 30 Healing Skill Points

Location: Anywhere!
1. Find yourself in some extreme weather (for Boreas, blizzards, hail, etc; for Auster, strong storms/flooding).
