Alchemist In the late sixth century after the fall of the Seleucarian Empire, a great alchemical imbalance threatened our world. Forged by Phaestus and tainted by Twilight's hand, the planet Nurazar wreaked havoc across the lands, causing the cabal to resurface. With the help of Achaeans everywhere, the cabal was able to destroy Nurazar, restoring balance to the cosmos and revealing the Alchemist class. Alchemists In the late sixth century after the fall of the Seleucarian Empire, a great alchemical imbalance threatened our world. Forged by Lord Phaestus and tainted by Lord Twilight's hand, the planet Nurazar wrought havoc across the lands, causing the Cauda Pavonis to resurface. With the help of Achaeans everywhere, this ancient cabal of Alchemists was able to destroy Nurazar, restoring balance to the cosmos and revealing the Alchemist class. Alchemy Formulation Physiology Alchemy Alchemy is the primary study of the Alchemists, focusing on the manipulation of the ether and the alchemical energies that flow through it. The main focus of the skill is based upon drawing upon the latent alchemical energies via Symbology to direct the power of the alchemical primes and metals. Further aspects of Alchemy involve the extraction of the three primes; salt, sulphur, and mercury; from the earth itself, and synthesising these substances into various metals. The skilled practitioner of Alchemy will even find it possible to transmute flesh into varying substances, culminating in the ability to encase another completely in gold. Abilities in Alchemy Symbology Draw upon the alchemical energies. Lead Density from the lowest of the metals. Seek Find another through the ether. Robes The mystic garb of the Alchemist. Iron Strike with the power of iron. Salt The first prime will cleanse your body. Tin Tin will grant you a reflective barrier. Copper Shatter an enemy's defence with copper's energies.

Decompound A way to devolve Talisman Pieces into pure gold. Revivification Grant life to the deceased. Disrupt Send ripples through the ether. Aurification Immortalise your enemies in gleaming gold. Formulation Using the mystic research carried out over the centuries in the Cauda Pavonis, Alchemists have mastered the art of amalgamating potent compounds that can turn the tide of any battle. A variety of different mixtures are available, from phials of toxic gases which can be thrown into groups of enemies, to helpful concoctions that, when imbibed, will bolster the creator's offensive and defensive capabilities. Abilities in Formulation Mask Craft yourself a protective mask. Amalgamate Combine minerals to create potent compounds. Endorphin Soothe the body with a potent endorphin. Nutritional A potent nutritional supplement. Corrosive An acid to eat away at various defences. Petrifying Partial petrification comes with many advantages. Incendiary Sear flesh from bone with this lethal compound. Alteration Modify various properties of your compounds. Scrutinise Determine specifics about your compounds. Insufflate This compound will allow you to convert water into oxygen. Devitalisation The air itself turns against your victims. Intoxicant Paralyse the lungs of the unprotected. Vaporisation A compound that reacts violently with water. Phosphorous A compound to create a blinding flash. Monoxide A gas to disorientate your subjects. Toxin Death with a single breath. Concussive A compound that reacts violently when exposed to the air. Mayology The culmination of the Mayan experiment. Halophilic An experimental agent. Enhancement A formula to enhance your physiology. Bolster Force your body beyond its limits. Philosopherstone The pinnacle of Alchemical learning. Physiology Physiology is the study of the biological processes required for life. Alchemists trained in Physiology will find themselves able to utilise this knowledge in two primary ways: First, Alchemists may manipulate the humours, or vital fluids, of others in order to cause illnesses of varying degree, eventually gaining the power to slay another via spontaneous organ failure. Humourism, as this art is called, is based upon the tempering of another's body, aiming to increase his internal fluid level. An unrestricted Humourist is a force to be feared, but their effects may be countered by the ingestion of the ginger herb and antimony mineral. The second aspect of Physiology is the creation and control of homunculi. From within a properly equipped laboratory, the trained Alchemist may take a small sample of his own flesh, germinating it into a homunculus. Through the physiological and ethereal bond between Alchemist and homunculus, the diminutive creature may be controlled by its master, able to perform varied tasks from assaulting an opponent to being the eyes, ears, and mouth of its owner. Abilities in Physiology Humourism Tinker with an enemy's vital fluids. Cultivation A homunculus will serve you faithfully. Eyes See through the eyes of your homunculus. Legs Control your homunculus's legs from a distance. Wrack Afflict an opponent by assaulting the humours. Arms Specialised attacks for your homunculus. Evaluate Discern the vitals of another. Ears Listen through your homunculus's ears. Diffusion Manipulation of two humours at once. Mouth Speak through the mouth of your homunculus. Saturation Concurrent control over three humours. Hands Your homunculus possesses dextrous fingers. Effusion Mastery of all four humours. Torso Your homunculus will prevent an enemy from escaping. Truewrack Wrack two humours simultaneously. Throat Your homunculus's screeching will startle an enemy. Inundate Attack an already imbalanced humour. Corruption Capitalise on your homunculus's alien physiology. Transfusion Eternal life with a brand new body. Reave Kill another with catastrophic organ failure.
