Dispel Plant (Action Powers)

- Main article: Powers (Action)
You can analyze the abilities and attributes of any plant within reach, even if it is inside a container or otherwise separated from you. You learn the exact attributes, skills and schticks of plant creatures or the traits of plants and items made from former plants. You also learn and whether it has been affected by any powers recently.
A power that has been dispelled cannot be used again by that creature in this scene, and another creature that tries to use the same power in the same general area must match your Know with the stunt the power is used with, or it fails.
This will not negate a Curse, but will tell you how to defeat the curse if the roll is successful.
Inherent powers cannot be dispelled.
The difficulty is the skill of the most skilled creature involved in making the effect. Effects that have been around a long time are harder to dispel: see the table. Use the highest relevant difficulty.
You can gather and use herbs for medicinal purposes. You are always assumed to keep an eye out for such herbs and refresh your supply; the power details how to use them. You can substitute the patient's Body with your Know skill. This can soak damage and help fight infections, poison, pathogens, and other dangers. You can use this as a prophylactic, but must know what specific problem you are preventing. The effect lasts for a scene.
Herbalism also applies to poisons. When used in food or as a contact poison, you must first apply the poison (which might be as stunt on some other skill) and the target gets a Spot roll against your Know to discover the poison at the last minute. If the poisoning is successful, you do Infection or Neurotoxin damage equal to your Know.
