Alchemy is the art of altering the internal elements of an object to create another through the process of super-heating materials with a blaze rod, and proceeding to combine materials and combine them with a common bonding material (water). No other heated item has been known to be able to produce these results other than the blaze rod, possibly due to a certain magical spell locked within them. For example, with Alchemy it is possible to convert the entirety of a spider eye, rather than a fraction of it, into pure poison. The same applies to carrot's abundance of Vitamin C, converting the entire carrot into an eyesight sharpening super vitamin. Gold is often used to amplify these characteristics, being used as added material to alter. The application and use of Brewing Stations is not simple for those who have not studied the topic or for those who are not adept altering magical fields. Alchemy is considered a black magic by many because it relies on the magical power of Netharnian creatures.

Potion Additions

Often times, brewers will use special dusts and chemicals to make them last longer, and hit harder. There's even a forumla that can corrupt a potion. Gunpowder is used in splash potions simply for the fact that it explodes when it hits the ground, dispersing the bottle's contents.

Potions can become corrupted if the correct amounts of mushroom dust, sugar, and spider poison are added to a mix due to an alchemical phenomenon discovered by Witches of the Far East. Such an effect reverses the usual effect of a potion, making it do the opposite of its intended use. The reason behind this is unknown except to the Witches who discovered it.

To lengthen the powers of a potion, Redstone dust is required. Redstone dust charges the potion's contents, often times making it bubble, to push the particles and solvents of the liquid away from eachother, allowing for the highest amount of lengthening with the shortest loss of effect.

Often times, brewers will want to increase the intensity of their potion with Glowstone Dust. Glowstone dust, basically, does the exact opposite of Redstone Dust, pushing the particles closer together so that they may have a more potent, powerful effect. Glowstone Dust used in potions also tends to make them glow or shimmer when in dim light. Such an effect is often used by brewers to measure the intensity of potions.

Uses in History (Lore)

Kaxopilla, an unknown potion used in conjunction with dark magic chants created a slime person.

Far_Lander A man drank a potion made with the blood squeezed from the heart of his true love, a tear from his father after an act of true betrayal(killing his wife), and a poison bought from a demon that he sold his child's soul to. With the aid of a group of necromancers he ascended into lichdom after the potion corrupted his soul and killed him.
