A hermetic rod acts as a scientific focus; it is the hub of an Alchemist’s energies. All third level Alchemy requires the possession a hermetic rod that acts as a reagent to produce. It has no other effects.
Production of a hermetic rod costs four Production Points and 20 coins. Each rod is created specifically for its user. If a rod is lost, stolen, or destroyed, a new one must be created before any production of third level amalgams can continue.
Creation of this item requires the player provide their own prop and present it to logistics each time it is used. This can be any rod, bar, or staff that does not look anachronistic. It may vary in size from that of a small drum stick to a walking stick. It is usually metal and lavishly decorated and adorned with eldritch runes. This prop must be presented and approved at logistics at sign in, where it will be given a treasure ID number. It is an in-game, stealable item.
