It may have escaped your notice, but money is needed in Avalon to purchase food, armour, lamps, HERBS, etc... Since Animists have no skills to fashion anything other than herbs, how else do you expect us to raise money to feed and clothe ourselves? We would certainly _never_ charge for healing anyone, and only occasionally charge for curing someone (though the latter I have never charged for myself).
Many quests which result in monetary gain are inaccessible to Animists because they involve killing, which we are unwilling / unable to do.
Essence, needed for evoking herbs, costs money. I am sure you would think us insane if we provided herbs free of charge for which we have had to buy essence to enable us to make them.
In future, think before posting childish jibes on a public BB.
