40 Alchemical Items

40 Alchemical Items


What good is alchemy?

Wizards don't use the Craft (Alchemy) skill to brew potions, they use the Brew Potion feat. Sorcerers don't use it to identify potions, because Spellcraft handles that. So what can characters do with Craft (Alchemy)?

Alchemy should be all about using rudimentary science and pseudo-science to replicate magical effects....for example, what is a sunrod if not a long-lasting Light spell?

You have before you a compendium of alchemical items both mundane and marvelous. Several of these items are included to add a realistic flavor to any game world while others duplicate spells or create entirely new effects, making Craft (Alchemy) more useful by increasing the number of items that can be created with it.

Included in this 16-page PDF, written by Steve Honeywell, are more than 40 items, organized by name, by Creation DC and by cost, and guidelines for introducing them into your d20 campaign.

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.
