Substances cover anything that's manipulatable in the game that's not a weapon or armor. Liquid, skins, dead critters. Living insects, slime, algae, mushrooms, fungi, etc.
Initial roll-in: healing substances and most burning substances.
Much more messaging involved in healing messaging. Will tell you what it does and when it's done. Or what it cannot do. Target areas with herbs, increased potency. Multiple healing areas: sometimes more severe wounds heal more than less with general. Rubbing targetted on several areas will not be an overdose-will just use more of the herbs.
Will be nerve healers and internal eye healers w/side effects.
Vertigo spell as possible side effect for nerve healing herb.
Application will matter.
Will be able to see how many uses remain of an herb with analyze.
Empaths may be able to see potency, side effects, etc.

Tactics like folding will be in smithing
Health will matter, what you wear will matter, two scratches won't matter but a missing arm will.
Weapons will not be custom fitted. Will be a possibility, but no plans. Custom fitting to armor
Personally owned forging tools; smithing better stuff with own tools vs. Tools at the forge.
Shield forging-composite-wood and leather frames, leather straps, metal plating or bosses or rivets, etc. Steel jousting shields
make larger pieces of ingot or chain or plate or chain to cut out pieces with scraps to cut more out of or remelt
