Alchemy dev question and answer

Recommended Posts

Unlimited Power - Alchemy Crafting - in Step 3: Construction second section under the Alchemical Crafting subsection - Page 80 - Column 2 ‘Instead the character may spend white pips generated on the check...’ it then reads ‘Likewise the GM may spend any black pips generated ...’ 

My question is this - unlike with advantage and threat you can have both white and black pips simultaneously as they don’t cancel out - is this therefore a correct interpretation of the situation in this case that crafted Alchemy items are likely to have both positive and negative traits chosen from tables 3-2 and 3-4? 

A follow up question must then be - are we reading crafting rules wrong in general and advantage and threat do NOT cancel during the crafting role?

———————————————

To the first part of your question, your check for Alchemy can have Light Side and Dark Side results that can be spent by you and your GM, so the final item can have both positive and negative elements.

 

To the second part of your question, crafting rules follow the same rules as other checks do. Advantage and Threat do cancel out.

 

Hope this helps!

Another alchemy question

in Force and Destiny Unlimited Power page 32 under IMPROVISED CONCOCTION it reads_

 Once per encounter, as an action, the character may make a Hard (t t t ) Knowledge (Xenology) check,adding force dice no greater than their Force rating. If the character succeeds, they create 1 dose of any potion, poison. or drug (such as the ones found on page 81 or page 181 of the FORCE AND DESTINY Core Rule book) out of available materials

My question is the following. the potions starts on page 81 and on page 82 there is a table and then the potions continue on page 83.

Is it only those on page 81?

or is it supposed all the potions on page 81-83?

 

ANSWER
The page reference refers to where the section starts, so we do, in fact, suggest using all of the potions found on page 81-83. We also suggest using other potions, drugs, or poisons from other books if you happen to have them available.

 

Hope this helps!
