Chemical Savant[edit]

You have taken an interest in all manner of chemical mixtures. Maybe you are a humble shop owner, maybe you wanted to rid the town of a certain drunk, or maybe it is just a simple hobby to you.

Now what you do with such mixtures, that is up for you to decide.

Feature: Materials Expert[edit]

You have tinkered with all kinds of combinations. This has given you a fair knowledge of what mixes well, be it good or bad. You can look over ingredients and tell whether they are harmful, helpful, or useless. Given the correct ingredients you should be able to tell what kind of potion or poison they can make, thus crafting it with all the correct supplies should you wish.
