Solve et Coagula: A Practical Guide to Alchemy

A good gaming supplement expands the game; it provides some new and interesting spells, items, few cool plot points, maybe some adventure hooks. A great gaming supplement changes the game in exciting ways that make you want to dive into the world. Solve et Coagula, from the first paragraph of the first page, is a great supplement; while still remaining absolutley true to the lore and feel of the world, this short supplement adds a whole new axis of play to the game, inviting whole new stories revolving around and expertly weaving in other elements of the game (such as the "lifestyle" rules) that, while otherwise mechancially necessary, didn't really feel like an integral part of the game until this connected the dots.

There's more, of course, but this book is only 32 pages long, and I don't want to give away the farm. If you find yourself curious, even a little, about the material in this book, do yourself a favor and pick it up. You won't regret it.

Every page in this sourcebook is immediately useful to DMs and Players alike.

The expanded list of alchemical equipment and associated rules are is well designed and easy to understand, and are sure to make the downtime activities for players at the gaming table fun, interesting, and potentially lucrative.

The content in this book could easily find its way into a future Player's Handbook. I hope WotC gives this work a serious look.

What struck me is how the concepts mirror realistic concepts from the actual history of alchemy. Very cool for a history buff. Joseph Carriker has a great mind for description. The rules seem logical and easy to learn.

Solve et Coagula does the thing you want a product on a niche subject like alchemy to do, namely give you more than you expect. Its pages are positiely packed with useful content and ideas for both players and DMs, while grounding those ideas in the setting of the Forgotten Realms (although it is easy to export them to other D&D settings). If you're at all interested in the subject of alchemy for your games, you owe it to yourself to pick up this book.
