Guide to Alchemy

Suggested Price $0.10

I've been a bit frustrated with the crafting options that I've been able to find, especially when it comes to alchemy. They either seem to bring in a complete new system that is far too complicated or they seem to be too specific for general use. That's why I created my own. It is a system based primary on the existing crafting system and brings in specific elements that can be used in it.

Included in this document are alchemy's role in:

  • Assisting in the production of magical items
  • The production in damage inducing products in general (such as bombs and acid)
  • 27 materials new to 5e that enhance non-magical and magical crafting products.

Update: Fixed some typos and included some further clarifications for some materials.

Well that was embarrassing. Thanks for the heads up.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
