On Warrior Clan Cats, we provide users with a herb hunting system they can utilize for in-character requirements or to spice up role-playing by adding an element of chance. This herb hunting system implements the use of the Effect Dice and the Medical Herb list found below.

The herb hunting system is not required for every herb hunt; however, it must be used in formal assessments, as it is part of the rank system requirements.

Under the herb hunting system, the role-player starting the thread chooses a number of herbs they wish to gather from the list of available medical herbs based on the list attached below. The list includes the successful ranges for the herbs chosen for each tier, assigned by the role-player starting the thread. These numbers are static across the clans, but please take note of the usual locations of herbs during role-playing, as always. These collected herbs will not need to be tracked, this is just a uniform system for filling the requirements while adding a bit of spice in terms of the element of chance.

Dice Roll Results

6 rolled will be the very useful, or more rare, herbs. Up to three different herbs can be chosen for this.
4-5 rolled will be the relatively useful or uncommon herbs. Up to four different herbs can be chosen for this.
2-3 rolled will be the common, everyday herbs. Up to six different herbs can be chosen for this.
1 rolled will be either a failure to find anything, or the one who rolls can find a poison. These are listed at the bottom of the herb list.

The herbs chosen by the role-player who starts the topic will be announced in the first post, where it is placed is up to the individual. It can be in a Spoiler, or in bold, whatever works best for them so long as it stands out. From there, each participating member of the patrol can roll the dice, and depending on their roll pick from the listed herbs provided. 

See this topic for an example of how it would look in practice.
