This is the ability to continually search the local area for items that may be of use. It can be used to find food in survival situations or parts for an invention.

Different environments will have differing difficulty values to find food. Some environments rich in resources may require a higher Intelligence score while resource poor environments will require higher Will scores. Failing the Intelligence score of a foraging test means that a dangerous item is found rather than a beneficial one such as poisonous plants instead of eatable.

A skilled forager can find enough food to survive off of for a day in a single hour.
