Re: Alchemist

Alchemists as a class are hard to do, maybe a quasi-class approach could be a good way so it can be added to a magic-user. Based on the game rules, they should be able to: Create potions (maybe before 7th level) Do Magical research They could also be able to: Identify potions Mix potions I rather l...

The ability to make healing potions, barkskin salves, illusion dust, etc. should be considered, among many of the individually affecting spell or spell-like effects....

At that age, the hardest part is attention span and focus, or possibly having to be all the rules, and I mean ALL the RULES because reading and comprehension is minimal for most kids that age. I had to explain and manage everything heavily. I did change initiative for younger f...
