Gregorius21778: Works and Misfortunes of ye Alchemist

Watermarked PDF

Attention/Please read first! This is not the work of a native speaker. Please check the preview so that you may decide if my English matches your standards or not. Thank you.

You want to give your players access to a source of healing potions, but a bland “magic potion shop” will not fit the atmosphere of your game? You want an element of uncertainty that just handing out a list of what is on sale will not generate? You want something that will turn any purchase into a minor encounter at the start (or the end) of an adventure?  Do you want an ongoing background story about the Works and Misfortunes of ye Alchemist the characters visit regularly?

If you do, the purchase of this PDF will not only give you the basics about two  fantasy OSR NPC (Howell the alchemist and Turlough the Dwarf smith) but also a set of rules for randomizing the available healing potions and a total of  30 incidents that will affect the PC´s current and future business with Howell (and a have the potential to terminate them). These incidents include:

  • ideas for little, odd side quests
  • potions based on existing spells
  • new alchemical products (which may not be without flaws)
  • dangerous encounters related to ye alchemist
  • two magic items the PC may acquire
  • diverse mishaps and misfortunes!

Use a d100 to determine a random incident for each visit after the first, or handpick and arrange those you like to create your own “chain of events” around ye alchemist.

Last but not least, optional rules are included to make Alchemy accessible for players as a Specialist skill (LotFP compatible*)

Have fun!  … and don´t inhale the fumes!   

(Printer-friendly version included as well!)

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.
