    I definitely agree on the matter that it should get more attention. Of course part of the point of the thread as it is a thing that is referenced in different places in the 3e materials. As for the part about transmutation reading back I see I misunderstood what you were going with in that response. As for the aspect of how mundane it would be I suppose to me it would always kind of fall into the same zone as other crafts. You have mundane things which do limited stuff and then you have the next...tier? Like if you are armoror you can pick up craft artifact and make fancy armor. Presumably...

Is it just drugs? What about the transmutation of metals? If you use mystical mirrors to use sunlight on gold to get Orichalcum is that a kind of alchemy? The Yennin with their children made with 10 fathers talk about a formula...

  • I too have considered this and I like the idea. I like the concept but would prefer to avoid of course the metagaming aspect of it. No drinking the 10 Experience Potion type angle. The game I think can fit the concept in it. The Yennin may be produced by something similar enough to a fancy pill as it is described as a formula. The best thing is that it doesn't even have to necessarily work at all to fit into the system. When you are talking about things like personal growth and enlightenment so long as the drugs aren't a pop a pill raise your essence situation there is wiggle room. Was...
