Medicine in the Old World is primitive, unreliable, and expensive, so many people rely on traditional cures and medicines handed down through the centuries. In fact, many people distrust 'scientific' medicine. Herbalists, on the other hand, are respected members of society, although their clientele is not generally so exclusive as that of the Physicians. They gather and trade in herbs and prepare herbal remedies for all manner of ills. In rare and severe cases, they will treat the patient personally. Some do misuse their powers, as those who have been the subject of love or charm philtres know only too well, but the profession is steeped in the folklore of the Old World and most of the common people feel the Herbalist is their only friend when they fall ill.[1a]
