You can 'pluck' feathers from the corpses of birds and bird-like
creatures such as griffins and amphiteres. Feathers with a stiff shaft,
called the rachis, such as tailfeathers and primary flight feathers, are
the ones sought after. Unfortunately, these are often damaged when a
bird is killed and thus very few can be harvested.
Most feathers can be added to tailored and leathercrafted hats. They are
also crucial to making effective arrows and bolts. Proper fletching makes
them more accurate and damaging than those without. Feathers and plumes
can also be used for brewing potions. Some kinds of birds with a strongly
elemental nature, such as thunderbirds, may yield feathers with an
affinity for that element.
It takes no special skill to pluck feathers, though it you must know
hatmaking to add them to hats and fletching to add them to arrows.
