|Brief Description:||Produce level four alchemy compounds.|
Characters with levels of the alchemy skill can produce alchemical compounds of the same level or lower using production points. A character only spends production points when you first check-in for an event. In order to create items you'll have to learn to use the preproduction system.
Producing compounds of level 2 and higher also requires a variety specific foci to be presented during check-in. Level 2 compounds require a mirror of sophistry, level 3 compounds require a hermetic rod, level 4 compounds require a thaumaturgist's mortar and level 5 compounds require a philosopher's stone. If you do not have the correct foci present you may not produce alchemy of that level.
A thaumaturgist’s mortar is the mystic bowl in which an alchemist blends alchemical components. It acts as a cogent focus, the strop on which they hones the razor of their art.
All fourth level alchemy requires a thaumaturgist’s mortar that acts as a reagent for the production of new items. It has no other effects.
Production of a thaumaturgist’s mortar costs six production points and 35 coins. Each mortar is created specifically for its user. If a mortar is lost, stolen, or destroyed, a new one must be created before any production of fourth 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 wooden, ceramic, or metal bowl that does not look anachronistic. It may vary in size from that of a tea cup to a mixing bowl. 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.
