This skill governs the characters ability to determine if a foodstuff is edible. It also give the character the ability to make his/her food last longer in terms of usage. The character will know just how much they can deprive themselves of before starvation sets in, which will allow them to stretch their current food out to twice it amount in days, up to an extra week. After that starvation sets in normally. While stretching the food out, the characters base movement is ¾ his/her normal. After stretching the food out for more that a couple days the character will require twice the amount of food for the same amount of days equal to the amount of days spent on short rations.
