More than mere alchemist's fire is waiting for you in the latest Pathfinder Player Companion!

Fancy yourself an alchemist, hmm? Well it's time to get out of the junior leagues of alchemical formulae and take a gander at Pathfinder Player Companion: Alchemy Manual! Within this 32-page volume, you'll peek into the intricate world where the physical and magical collide. Increase the efficacy of spells with alchemical power components like dew of lunary and magnesium, learn about spontaneous alchemy (and new crafting mishaps), and add magical crafting tools like the retort of control to your laboratory! Learn about the items favored by the orcs of the Belkzen War Academy, delay (or increase) the onset of poison with lessons from the Daggermark Poisoner's Guild, or tip back a tankard with dwarven magical ales (and learn about the drunken rager barbarian archetype)! Craft the perfect servant with new homunculi options or methods of ooze construction, and gain a glimpse of the infamous works of Artokus Kirran with Thuvian wish alchemy. And even if you never could get the hang of mixing reagents together, there are plenty of new alchemical items to purchase at your favorite shop—or ask your party alchemist to make for you (for a small compensation, of course).

Check out the rest of our Pathfinder Player Companions right here, and if you're new to the world of the Pathfinder Campaign Setting, check out the Inner Sea Primer!

This is alchemy's first law of equivalent exchange.


For a less well known reference I will need a gas mask and a special chem proof cloak. I hope there are ways to make splash weapons viable although le Wolfe would probably be of the alchemist class.
