For example, Dòw ba technics traditionally link ginger to perception-altering effects and believe bread plums are the most ascientifically inert ingredient due to their lack of flavor.


Cookery is the knack shared by technic members of the Dòw gie population. With it, one can imbue dishes with certain ascientific effects depending on their degree of mastery. Dishes prepared with cookery often simply possess an augmented nutritional value and some degree of subtle healing ability—nearly all Dòw ba have the intuitive ability to prepare dishes of this caliber. With more skill, cookery can be used to imbue food with strength-enhancing ascience,
