When you use the gather command, your character will make a cursory search
of the immediate area, and attempt to find things.

The 'gather check' command will give you a rough idea of what resources are
available in a room.

In order to gather herbs or mushrooms, you will need to know the 'plant lore'
skill. Herbs will vary by terrain.  You will find very different herbs in
dunes and desert than you will taiga and tundra.

Acorns are special nuts which you may find from time to time.  They can be
used in some druid spells, and your character automatically keeps track of
them the same way you keep track of dragon teeth and gold.  You can see how
many acorns you have with the 'show acorns' command.

Searching for bullets will recover pebbles of the right size and shape to
be thrown with a sling. Places with running water are most likely to yield
sling bullets.

A few rare locations have unique resources that can be gathered.
