State Alchemist[edit]

A dwarf reaches for the ground; newly formed gauntlets wrap her hands. The tattoo on her hand glows and she punches a wall, causing the stone to form into a cannon. Another punch and a slit opens up, she can see the other side, and opens fire.

A tiefling repairs his vehicle. The elf seeing the go-ahead starts the gas and pulls off. The gnome fires the car-mounted ballista, and the circle drawn on it glows. The heavy bolts fly through the air, suddenly becoming lead needles the size of halflings.

A dragonborn kneels over the body of his fallen comrade, weeping tears of blood and drawing multitudes of symbols on the floor around him. On the ground a suit of armor rises, and the dragonborn is suffused with black energy. Wiping away the tears he paints symbols in the armor with his own blood, calling his friends soul back from the afterlife. The suit of armor sits up, and with a hollow voice, thanks the dragonborn.

As members of the military, State Alchemists are privy to the most advanced alchemical resources, including exclusive access to the best research materials as well as state-of-the-art government laboratories, and are given a sizable research grant each year which can be put to any purpose a State Alchemist so chooses. Also on the list of perks is an automatic military officer rank equivalent to that of Major and all the considerable military authority and government influence that comes with it.

State Alchemists are soldiers who utilize the art of alchemy to alter their surroundings. Alchemy requires an extensive knowledge of chemistry, physics, and ancient alchemical theory and magic. Although most can preform alchemy, only a few are trained and only a handful become great.

Alchemic Stamina You use Alchemic Stamina to Fuel your alchemy circles. You must have the specified amount of Alchemic Stamina left to activate a alchemy Circle. You regain Alchemic Stamina after a short rest.

Combat Training You can use either your dexterity or your constitution when determining your AC.

Alchemy Circle[edit]

Alchemist manifest their powers through the use of alchemy circles. To make a Circle of a specific element requires the presence of the element within 60ft of the Circle. Using a circle is an Action. Some circles can be further empowered by overloading it with extra Alchemical Stamina. Circles come in varying sizes. The Size of the Circle determines its Base Cost as well as its time to Use.

Size Base Cost Action to Use
Small 0 Action
Medium 2 Action
Large 4 Action + Bonus Action

Equivalent Exchange[edit]

In order for a transmutation to succeed, an equal or greater amount of the source material must be present to fuel the reaction. If enough of the source material is not present, however, the reaction fails. You can only manipulate (10 x Alchemist Level x Proficency Bonus) pounds.

Alchemical Study[edit]

You gain Affinity of one of the Following: Water, Earth, Fire, Air, Electricity, Metal, or Organic(Decompose)

  • Affinity Level You can pick the same Study more than once, this gives you a new bonus for each rank reached. When first chosen the Affinity starts at Minor and increases with each time chosen. You can manipulate any element, however, only your chosen element for study will gain these benefits. Generally, your chosen element will land your nickname (e.g. Edward Elric; The Full-Metal Alchemist, Roy Mustang; The Flame Alchemist, etc.)
  • Minor - Add Your Alchemy Attack Modifier to the Attack Roll
  • Lesser - Increase the Base Range by 50%
  • Moderate - Increase the Base Duration by 50%
  • Greater - Half the Amount of Alchemic Stamina needed for the Base Transmutation Circle Cost Rounded Down
  • Perfect - Half the amount of Alchemic Stamina needed to Overload it rounded down

Combat Alchemy[edit]

Starting at 3rd level, when you use an Action other than to activate a Circle, you may activate a Circle up to Medium size as a bonus action.

Circle Marking[edit]

When you reach 5th level, you may permanently etch a transmutation circle onto a weapon, an article of clothing, or your body. You do not have to respect the equivalence formula. The Circle must have a defined element and must be small. This Circle only performs one action, which you pick when making it. (e.g. Alex Armstrong's circle causes rocks to shoot outward like needles, Roy Mustang's shoots flame outward, etc.)

Transmutation Modification[edit]

At certain levels you gain the ability to enhance the use of a Transmutation Circle in ways other than overloading it. This Additional cost is determined after any overloading. Gain the effect of one of the following:

Modification Additional Cost of Use Effect
Rapid Transmutation 1/2 The Transmutation Circles Cost The time required to activate a Circle is halved (Action -> Bonus Action, Bonus Action -> Reaction)
Alchemic Recycling 1/4 The Transmutation Circles Cost You can reuse the same Transmutation Circle again as a Bonus Action
Empowered Transmutation 1/2 The Transmutation Circles Cost You double the range or duration of the circle
Deadly Transmutation The Transmutation Circles Cost You deal 2x the normal amount of damage dealt by the circle.
Transmutation Trap 1 Point Per Turn The Circle is not activated until a creature moves onto a designated space within 30ft
Planned Transmutation 2 Points Chose a number of creatures in the effects of you Transmutation Circle. Those creatures automatically pass their Saves and take no damage
Brutal Transmutation 3 Points Reroll an amount of damage dice equal to your Intelligence Modifier that come up as a 1

Alchemic Recollection[edit]

At 7th Level you can spend you standard action recollecting your thoughts. This lets you regain Alchemical Stamina equal to half your level. You regain use of this feature after a long rest. At 14th Level gain a second use of this ability each long rest.

Soul Bonding[edit]

Beginning at 9th level, upon the death of any humanoid you may perform a transmutation to bond their soul to a set of armor. The suit of armor may be pre-existing or alchemically created during the reaction. The creature retains all languages it knew in its previous life and retains any proficiencies it had, along with any proficiencies that you have and choose to give it. You may force the creature to make a DC 18 intelligence saving throw. On a failed save, the creature is charmed by you and follows your orders for (level)d6 hours. On a successful save the creature retains its free will but takes 2d10s of psychic damage. During this transmutation, you take 5d10s of necrotic damage, then multiply your hit points by two to find the construct's total hit points. The created construct does not need to eat, breathe, or sleep, has a natural armor of 18, and cannot wear additional armor. It has immunity to poison and psychic damage, and resistance to fire and physical attacks. It can benefit from short and long rests and if sufficient material is nearby, the creator can use the mend circle to restore hit points to the construct. If you hold a philosopher's stone, the creature is permanently charmed by you and will follow you orders. Constructs of this nature cannot have a circle marking on its body, but can benefit from a circle marking on a weapon or other object.

Philosopher's Stone[edit]

Beginning at 10th level, over 8 hours you may create an object of immense alchemical power called a philosopher's stone. In order to create a philosopher's stone, you must perform a transmutation in the presence of 2 or more dead humanoids killed within 2 hours of the reaction. During the reaction, the souls of the present corpses are gathered together and solidified into an amber colored stone of a size of your choosing. While you may pour as many souls into your philosopher's stone, every additional soul exceeding 4 souls in the stone has relative little effect. You can add additional souls into your stone without an 8 hour ritual, rather, you simply need to place the corpse in a transmutation circle with the stone in the middle for 1 minute. Even if you have more than 1 stone, the effects of the stones do not stack. You may affix this stone to a necklace, earring, ring, or bracelet. In terms of a character development, this is not only an illegal action, but an evil one as well.

2 souls

You no longer need to draw transmutation circles to perform alchemy, and may ignore Equivalent Exchange when performing Alchemy.

3 souls

You may add your alchemy attack modifier twice when determining damage, and reroll all 1s.

4 souls

You gain +2 to your alchemy attack mod and alchemy save dc.

5 souls

Performing alchemy only costs a bonus action, and your circle marking is reduced to a reaction.

1+ souls

As an action, you may consume a soul inside your philosopher stone to extend your life by 20 years or heal 10+0.5(Alchemist Level + Proficiency Bonus) hit points. If this ability overheals, then you gain the difference as temporary hit points. Consuming a soul also counts as a long rest and meets all food/water needs.


Starting at 11th level, You may attempt to make your own chimera. The chimera appearance is determined by the DM and the Alchemist. The stats of the animal are both stats combined divided by 2. The animals CR cannot be higher than half your Alchemist Level. The amount of time required to create a Chimera is equal to the final CR of the animal.

It is charmed by you and follows your orders. It rolls its own initiative in combat. You can only have at most 2, and when you try to form the third, the oldest one is destroyed. The chimera gains all the natural weapons of its component parts. Its hit points are equal the sum of its component parts. The resulting creature is one size larger than the largest component creature. You cannot use a chimera's corpse as one of the composite corpses. If you are wielding a philosopher's stone, you may substitute one of the component beasts with a humanoid's corpse.


As you reach 13th level, you have begun your studies in the field of Human Transmutation and may bolster a humanoids' strength, dexterity or constitution score. To do so, you may perform a ritual that drains the strength, dexterity, or constitution of one target humanoid and bestowing it on another (Max 20). You may use yourself as either target. This ritual takes 1 hour per every 2 points drained. This change is unnatural however, and for every 2 points added every hour you take 1d6 necrotic damage. This change is reversed after you take a long rest. You may use a philosopher stone to make the change permanent, but only for a maximum of 2 points. The philosopher stone is consumed and you may only do this to a person once. After recieving this process, the target may also now use Alchemy to reconstruct or reconstruct sentient beings. When attempting to deconstruct someone, the target may make a dexterity saving throw, the target takes (1/2*Alchemist Level)d6 damage on a failed save, or none on a successful save, this damage can be targeted at a specific limb. When using Reconstruction, it heals the target for the damage it would have done instead, and can repair one limb at a time. You may use this ability a number of times equal to your intelligence modifier, all uses of this ability are refreshed after a long rest.


Beginning at 15th level, you may perform a transmutation that transforms a living humanoid into a powerful being called a homunculus. You must be wielding a 5 soul philosopher's stone to perform this transmutation. Your philosopher's stone is consumed by this reaction. This reaction takes 8 hours to perform. The homunculus also retains any ability that the host body had before the transmutation, however may no longer use alchemy. A Homunculus rolls for ability scores like normal, adds their ability score to the host's, then divides that by two. Example: If the host has a strength score of 10 and then rolled a score of 12, then their end score would be 11 ((10+12)/2).

It is charmed by you and follows your orders. A homunculus does not need to eat, sleep, or breathe, and is immortal unless killed. Homunculi cannot wear armor, and have 11 + Dex modifier AC. Whilst you may choose the first Homunculus you obtain, any further creation of Homunculi requires you to roll a d8. This will determine what homunculus you receive, if any. You may only have one of each homunculi and if your roll would produce a Homunculus that you already have, you may reroll. If you roll an 8 on a reroll, you may reroll again. You can only command up to 2 homunculi. All Homunculi have the ability to regenerate an amount of HP equal to double their creator's Stamina Pool, with a max of 10 per turn. This pool is refreshed every long rest.

1 Lust

Lust has the ability to elongate her fingernails for unarmed strikes that deal 5d8 slashing damage, and have a reach of 25 feet.

2 Greed

As a Bonus Action, Greed can turn his skin into graphene, granting him a natural armor that adds +6 to his AC, resistance to non-magical attacks, and gives his unarmed attacks an additional 3d10 piercing damage. Greed cannot regenerate while in this form and may go back to normal as a free action.

3 Sloth

Due to his immense muscles, Sloth's size becomes large. He has an additional 25 Hit points on top of what's calculated for his health. Sloth's unarmed strikes deal 4d6 bludgeon damage. Sloth adds his constitution modifier to his AC. Sloth has a weaker form of regeneration, and can only regenerate a total of his creator's Stamina Pool, this pool is refreshed every long rest.

4 Gluttony

Gluttony can make a bite attack, this bite deals 3d6 acid damage. On a successful attack, he may force the opponent to make a grapple check. On a failed check, Gluttony swallows the creature, dealing an extra 3d6 acid damage. On a successful check, the creature is not swallowed and does not take the extra damage. Gluttony uses his Constitution modifier + proficiency for grapple checks in this way. While inside Gluttony's stomach, a creature takes 6d6 acid damage on each of its turns. A creature may remake the grapple check at disadvantage on each of its turns before they take the damage.

5 Envy

As a Standard Action, Envy may transform into any creature within two sizes of their own for 1 hour, unless ended prematurely. They retain all of their ability scores and gain all natural weapons, armor, senses, and speeds from their new form, but retain their health. This skill can be used a number of times equal to the creator's proficiency modifier. They regain all uses of this ability after a long rest.

6 Pride

Pride may extend his shadow up to 15 ft around him and form tendrils that deal 6d6 necrotic damage. Pride may also manifest "eyes" on his shadows that grant him line of sight. In full or bright light, Pride may use his Bonus Action to control an opponent's shadow, giving his next attack against them advantage. Additionally, if that attack hits, the opponent takes max damage from that attack. In dim light, pride gains a shadowy aura that causes any creature who hits him with a melee attack to take 2d6 necrotic damage. Pride's tendrils gain 20 feet to their range and deal an extra 2d6 necrotic damage while in dim light. In the darkness, Pride loses the the ability to make tendrils, but maintains the shadowy aura and the ability to make "eyes" in any shadows that pride is touching.

7 Wrath

Wrath is proficient with longswords, one of which is created in his transmutation. Wrath gains a level of multiattack equal to half his dexterity modifier, to a max of 3. Each of his attacks deals a number of d6 damage equal to half his dexterity modifier (rounded up). Additionally, Wrath's Left Eye becomes one capable of perfect prediction. Giving him advantage on perception checks that rely on sight. Wrath may use either a Bonus Action during his turn, or a Reaction during someone else's turn, to study his opponent, giving a different bonus depending on when he uses it (+2 to Attack Rolls against that opponent or +2 AC against that opponent respectively). Wrath, however, is unable to regenerate like other homunculus, and must heal like normal or be healed by his creator.

8 Rebound

The transmutation fails, the humanoid dies and you take 5d10s necrotic damage.

Human Transmutation[edit]

You may not use yourself as this blueprint. The humanoid is an exact copy of the blueprint creature including class features, hit points, speed, abilities, and skills. It needs to roll Intelligence check of DC 18 or it is charmed by you and follows your commands. Your philosopher's stone is consumed during this reaction. You may only command one such creation


When you reach level 20, you have learned how to perform the ultimate transmutation. Six willing humanoids or soul bonded creatures and one homunculus must be present to complete the ritual. You must also be wielding a 5th level philosopher's stone to partake in this action. This ritual takes 24 hours to complete. Upon completing this transmutation, you become the quasi-mortal being Father. The stone and humanoids are consumed by this reaction. You gain the following features as Father.
