So, the 5th Circle Hedge magic spell Alchemy? It really takes five weeks to make a potion of levitation?

And 3000 silver royals.

So, the Alchemist is basically hiring a team of six guys, paying them 100 royals each per week, to go out, scour the dungeons, until they find a potion of levitation sitting around and bring it back to him. Meanwhile, he does the JUMBLE puzzle every day until they return. Because they're union, they'll take the entire time and money.

Ha. Alright, if the alchemist is non-union, it's 500 royals.

The 5k is right, but the time is actually 3.5 weeks (10 days + 3 per Circle). No doubt this doesn't suppose an Alchemists Guild. This was created before Twylos was added. It's my own magic-scarcity bias.

However, I'll quote pg 229 under Character Creation of Magic Items: Here, general rules are provided regarding the manufacture of magic items or potions by powerful Hermetic or Hedge magic using characters. However, it must be stressed that these rules are provided as a guideline only. If the Game Master determines these rules do not adequately fit within his campaign setting, he is strongly encouraged to modify, or to replace them as he sees fit.

So if you have a non-union setting, etc., change it.

Maybe the next Twylos installment will have a Magic Item Creation section?

UAW discounts. Subsidies so that Alchemists Guild don't have to go all Chapter 11.
