  • Additional sources of pyros for alchemists

    Are there additional sources of pyros that alchemists can gain? Alchemists regenerate a few points of pyros per week from magnitude. This is woefully inadequate. I have a PC that I a have been working towards having become an alchemist. However I fear this is a trap, and that the limited amount of pyros is going to cripple this character.

    Prometheans.

      I'd say Firestorms too; and qashmallim.

        Pandorans could theoretically be harvested for Pyros, but there exists a possibility of Flux contamination. Also, without a Promethean to feed from they're a non-renewable resource. Sublimati, on the other hand, can replenish their Pyros by eating human flesh. An enterprising Alchemist could keep one captive and feed it medical waste. There's no way that could go wrong.

          I’m glad I asked, thinking there had to be something obvious that I was missing. This does not seem to be the case for the core promethean rules. I was hoping that there would be some option that would work for an alchemist. to make them viable. Without minimally adequate source of pryos Alchemist can’t do alchemy.

          I have an existing character that already has some supernatural merits befitting an alchemist, do you have any recommendations for other approaches in keeping with alchemist character concept.

            The alchemists presented in the core book aren't designed with player characters in mind, and it's assumed that they'll supplement their meager reserves with Pyros stolen from Prometheans. If you want something a bit more playable, I've worked up some alternate alchemist rules that are designed with player characters in mind.

              Other then it escaping and killing the alchemist.

              Or it could when a Promethean comes "Within range" of it, escape, possibly with the help of new offspring, then possibly find more Pandorans, And work up a trap for the alchemist... or think it would focus on corrupting the promethean(s)?

                Or finding a way to freely leave and reenter the containment to snack on live patients.

                Or somehow releasing Flux-charged contaminants into its surroundings.

                Or using persuasion, blackmail or mind-influence to get the Alchemist to feed it better.

                So many options...
