A dispensurist (pronounced "diss-pens-yoo-rist") is a type of skold who creates drafts and potives for healing purposes. Their formal training consists of six months' study at a rhombus and a two year apprenticeship with a qualified dispensurist, after which they themselves become licensed. Dispensurists are generally trusted and liked more than skolds. They are widely employed and can be found in both civilian and military settings. Craumpalin and Tynche, who was stationed at Wormstool, are dispensurists.
The occupation is similar to that of a real world pharmacist.
