Transmutation alchemist

A scientist on a quest to become God

Arcane scientist

An elf draws a quick symbol on the ground as she dodges a bandits cut. She slaps the palm of her hand on the circle she drew and draws a newly made sword from where the symbol lay. She strikes down foe after foe until the rest flee. Drawing another symbol on the sword blade, she transforms it into 3 daggers, which she hurls into the backs of those running. When the killing is over, she draws one last circle and returns the daggers to the earth.

A Human snaps his fingers as fire springs forth from thin air, bathing the zombies in flame. He makes a chopping motion with his hands as a whip of water appears in the air between him and a group skeletons. Finally, he draws a symbol on the ground and shackles of earth bind the necromancer forevermore in the dark cave where he held court.

A dragonborn kneels over the body of his fallen comrade, weeping tears of blood and drawing multitudes of symbols on the floor around him. Out of 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.

Alchemy

Starting at level 1, you could use alchemy to alter your surroundings. The base damage you do with your alchemy is 1d6. See the table above for damage at higher levels. Your alchemy attack modifier is equal to your Intelligence modifier plus your proficiency bonus. Your alchemy has a range of 60 feet. For any alchemy you perform that would require a saving throw, the DC is equal to 8 plus your intelligence modifier plus your proficiency bonus. There are 4 basic branches of alchemy. Fire, water, metal and earth. Each has its own source materials and damage types.

Fire Alchemy

its damage type is fire

Earth Alchemy

its damage type is bludgeoning.

Water Alchemy

it may either do slashing or cold damage

Metal Alchemy

it may do slashing, piercing, or bludgeoning.

Transmutation Circles

In order to perform alchemy, one must draw a transmutation circle. Doing this takes a bonus action. Activating a circle costs an action. A transmutation circle must be touching the source material for the transmutation to take place. Any circle drawn on the source material is destroyed. A circle may be drawn on any surface with any medium, as long as the surface will accept it.

Equivalent Exchange

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 an amount of square feet of material equal to 10 x your Alchemist level plus your Intelligence modifier.

Alchemical Armoury

Beginning at 2nd level, you may draw a transmutation circle on earth or metal source and create a weapon with alchemy. Intelligence is your attack modifier for this weapon. This weapon deals damage with your alchemy attack dice. Weapon and Armours summoned with this ability last an amount of minutes equal to your level.

Beginning at level 5, you may also create metal armours with this feature.

Alchemical Deconstruction

When you reach level 2, you may now use your alchemy to transform anything excluding sentient beings to their base elements.

Alchemical Study

Starting at level 3, your studies have become more focused. choose a path from the list below. You gain features in this study at 3rd, 6th, 12th, and 17th levels.

Ability Score Increase

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Transmutation Tattoo

Starting at level 5, you may permanently etch a transmutation circle into your flesh, taking 3d6 necrotic damage. These circles may be used a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus. You may regain these uses after a short or long rest. Activating this circle costs a bonus action. The circle must be revealed for it to activate. You may have a maximum of two of these Transmutation Tattoos.

Bio-alchemy 1

Beginning at level 6, you may use alchemy to control plant life around you. The law of equivalent exchange still applies. You may have this element do bludgeoning or piercing damage. Also, you may use alchemic deconstruction on plantlife.

Alchemical Mending

At level 7 you are now able to mend weapons and armors using alchemy. Also, any weapons or armors you made using alchemy can be made permanent.

Alchemical Reconstruction

At level 7, you may form objects that have a mixture of different elements to create alloys and compounds. Once on each of your turns, when you hit a creature with a weapon attack, you can cause the attack to deal an extra 1d8 of the respective Alchemy damage type to the target. When you reach 14th level, the extra damage increases to 2d8.

Soul Bonding

Beginning at level 9, 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 a number of hours equal to your alchemist level times six. On a successful save the creature retains its free will but takes 2d10 psychic damage. During this transmutation, you take 5d10 necrotic damage. The constructs hit points are equal to your maximum hit points multiplied by two. The created construct doesn't need to eat, breathe, or sleep, it has a natural armor of 18, and cannot wear armor. It has immunity to poison and psychic damage, and resistance to fire, piercing, slashing and bludgeoning damage. It regains all hit points at midnight of each day. It's creator may spend 1 action to fully alchemically "repair" it and give it all of its hit points back. If you hold a philosopher's stone, the creature is permenantly charmed by you and will follow you orders.

Philosopher's Stones

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 1 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 corpes in a transmutation circle with the stone in the middle for 1 minute. Whilst having more than one stone, you may only use 1 stone at a time. If you have more than one soul in a stone the effects stack.You may affix this stone to a necklace, earring, ring, or bracelet.

1 soul

If a transmutation would cause you to take necrotic damage, negate that damage. in the case, of soul bonding the construct has hit points equal to 3 times your current health

2 souls

You no longer need to draw transmutation circles to perform alchemy, additionally, performing alchemy only costs a bonus action, your transmutation tattoo is reduced to a free action.

3 souls

You gain +2 to your alchemy attack mod and alchemy save dc, and you can perform alchemy without equivalent exchange.

4 souls

You may add your alchemy attack modifier twice when determining damage. You may reroll all 1s and get +2 to your alchemy save dc.

5+ souls

You may consume a soul inside your philosopher stone to extend your life by 20 years or heal 10 + half your Alchemist Level + Proficiency Bonus hit points. If this ability would heal you past your maximum number of hit points, then you gain the difference as temporary hit points that persists until destroyed by damage.

Chimera

Starting at 11th level, You may attempt to make your own chimera. The chimera appearance is determined by the Alchemist. The stats of the animal are both stats combined divided by 2 it gains all the ability of both creatures. The animals CR cannot be higher than 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.

Bio-Alchemy 2

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 may only drain 2 points. The philosopher stone is consumed and you may only do this to a person once. You may also now use alchemic deconstruction or reconstruction on sentient beings. However, when attempting to use alchemic deconstruction on an enemy, the enemy is allowed to make a saving throw of 10 plus your intelligence modifier plus your proficiency modifier and you can only influence one limb at a time. When using reconstruction, it heals the target for the damage it would have done instead, and can repair one limb at a time. Alchemic deconstruction/reconstruction on sentient being can only be done your intelligence modifier number of times per long rest.

Advanced Alchemy

Beginning at level 14, you've become deadly with your alchemy. Anything you create with alchemy is considered magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage.

Homunculi

Beginning at level 15, you know how to perform a transmutation that converts a living humanoid into a powerful, soulless being called a homunculus. You must be wielding a 4 soul philosopher's stone to perform this transmutation. Your philosopher's stone is consumed by this reaction. This reaction takes 8 hours to perform. A Homunculus must roll 2d20 for their ability scores and subtract 5. Speed is double that of the host bodies and its hit points are double its max. The homunculus also retains any ability that the host body had before the transmutation. Example: a commoner has a strength score of 10. Their rolls were a 10 and a 13, becoming 23-5. The strength score of a Homunculus is now 18.

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. Homunculi regain all of their hit points at midnight each day. Upon taking damage, they regain 5 Hit points. 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. This only applies to rerolls. You can only command up to 2 homunculi.
