Basic Alchemist

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.00

The alchemist is more than a potion wholesaler or a mad bomber! Give your players something interesting with both use and potential. Using a basic framework and a few alternate magic rules (which could be added to nearly any existing magic system,) this concept is intended to provide a more interesting and versatile option with many role playing possibilities and a few—optional—crunchy bits.

Printer Friendly B&W!

Just added a sample alchemists notebook with processes level 1-3!

This is a nifty little class. Yes it has complete reliance on existing spell lists, but considering the tens of thousands of spells in the rpg universe that isn't much of a limitation.

The alchemy itself is simple yet has three decisions the player has to make for the start of each game day- the form of the concoction (potion, powder, unguent- each with its own advantages and limitations), the speed of performing alchemy (before hand to create concoctions that last only 24 hours or at the moment of need and thus obeying casting times), and what catalyst is required for the alchemy to function (air, fire or water). The first two are pretty good as is but the third one has much potential for inventive players.

If you want a simple system to modify to your heart's content then this is a dollar product that is worth more.

Edit- it could also be useful for those fans of the Monster Blood Tattoo series. Its alchemy isn't that different from the trilogy.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
