You are a well educated TL 7/8 layman. Outdoorsman skills are more than a few steps away from what you likely grew up needing to survive.

Also I wouldn't want such an overarching skill like Survival to step too hard on the toes of other skills of less adventuring utility like Leatherworking.
Survival has almost no use in normal DF, I'm perfectly fine lending it some needed oomph so the Barbarian feels that 40 points isn't going completely to waste.

Nobody in the group knows any such spells.

Well, I run a hex crawl. Survival is the most important skill in my game, possibly even more than weapon skills. Hence why killing monsters and eating them is a popular activity.

One reason I suggested hiring an Apprentice/Acolyte with those and maybe a few other useful spells.

A Food College Apprentice with a single elemental college up to the attack spell would make a decent back-up-to-the-back-up Wizard. Or an Acolyte of Bacchus could eventually grow into a really useful back-up healer.


Otherwise Prepare Food and Preserve Food are literally 5 exp for a Wizard to pick up at the 1 point/skill -1 level.
