Focusing on either herbalism or the application of poisonous venoms and plants, the Ayurveda (Healers) are responsible for keeping the Sassanid healthy. They will often share their knowledge with other cultures in order to gain information on healing from them in return. The Ayurveda are the tribe's healers and are consulted over everything from a stomach ache to training in war time medicine. The Head of the House sits on the Council of Houses.
This house may work closely with the House of Rohani in order to attend diplomatic missions for the sake of learning healing of other lands to increase their own knowledge for the sake of the tribe. ==
HOW TO ENTER THE HOUSE OF THE AYURVEDA
If one wishes to become a healer, they must apply to the Head of the House and begin their training by nursing for other healers, learning from the healers how to make salves and ointments. If they wish to specialize in poisons and treatment for poisoning, they must tutor under a healer who is already trained in this knowledge.
