Intelligent Druids

You just received the best fish you have gotten in a long time. Aurix brought back a huge shimmerfish after a long hunting day. You're excited to find out that you get to cook it. You take the huge, dripping fish from his huge reptilian claws. You take it into your watertight home, bringing it back to the cooking room. First, you drag your claws under it's scales to pull them off in a neat, clean sheet. You set that aside to use for something later. On the flesh of the fish, you rub a variety of four different herbs, imported salt from the desert of souls, and small black specks imported from Ocharial. Once the fish is thoroughly seasoned, you toss it into the pot simmering with broth. The smell wafts through the cooking room and out to the rest of the house. After ten minutes have passed, you call out, "Food is done!" You hear pounding footsteps dash towards you. Your family has arrived.
