Alchemists

Description

KNOWLEDGE, WEALTH AND GLORY IN A COPPER KETTLE

A pinch of mandrake root, a raven's feather ... stir well three times and the potion is ready. Should I try it myself? I'd rather not. What are students for?

How to play ALCHEMISTS?

Welcome to the world of alchemists! Experiment with magical substances, research alchemical elements and sell your potions to adventurers. With the proceeds you can buy artefacts that will help you in your research. Publish your results and secure desired third-party funding. And while you're at it, disprove the ridiculous theories published by your so-called colleagues. The Alchemists is about strategy, risk analysis and deduction. Would you rather do an experiment or publish on a vague guess before someone else does? Would it be better to invest your money in supporting a promising theory or save up for an artefact? And is it really wise to sell an axe-wielding barbarian a potion whose effects you don't know? Only those who make the right decisions can become the greatest alchemists of all time. Every game is different.
