Alchemist An Alchemist creates potions and bombs which he can imbue with his powers. For each potion type he learns he may create up to half his total power points in potions, at the cost of 10% of his power points and your recovery rate for PP’S from a short rest is reduced by 1 (up to -5). He must choose at the start of his day if he wants to imbue each potion he knows with powers. If he doesn’t, he can’t brew that type of potion on that day. Using a potion is always a standard action, regardless of the type of action it usually takes.

Alchemists learn a trapping each time he gains a new rank. He can make his bombs with any trappings he knows, but he must make them ahead of time. With 10 minutes of work he can make any number of potions available to him. These must all be premade. For instance, if his known power is burst, and he knows fire and acid trappings, he can make any combination of fire and acid bombs with any type of augment.

An Alchemist may have 1 potion with a duration of concentration active at a time. If he drinks another one (even from another source) he immediately loses the potion he has active. Potions with a duration of concentration last up to 1 hour.

He can only use 1 potion or bomb per round, regardless of how many he could usually use as a power. For instance, he may only throw a bolt bomb once per round.

An Alchemist spell components are always considered components.

When picking bonus spell an Alchemist can only gain one spell, he cannot learn two spells of a type he already knows.

2 1 If the power a potion emulates could be used multiple times (such as bolt), you may now do so.

4 1 You may now brew any number of potions in 1 minute.

Issuing a command to an animal companion is a free action, and he continues to follow that command to the best of his abilities until commanded to do something else. You may only have 1 companion from any source. If your animal companion dies you can replace him at the start of the next session at the cost of a level of long fatigue and an hour in nature.

When summoning 2 monsters they must be within 5 hexes of each other. Whenever you learn an additional form you may also learn tiers 1 level lower. (For instance – at tier 2 casting you can learn 2 tier mooks, and 1 tier 1 mook – which summons 2).
3 1 Your summoned mooks calculate their hit points as defined under “converting mooks to principals.”.
