It could be that the over picking of poisons in the land is due to over enthuasiastic knights stocking up. I however am under the impression that with the Ordination just around the corner that certain persons have been picking the land dry, possibly in an attempt to deprive those they see as their competitors from having access to those poisons and considering the number of bb's that we have all seen in the past about over picking and the fact that I have heard several people bemoaning the serious over-picking of poisons before we even had the ability to pick them then I tend to believe what I have heard more than what you claim.
