These skills are gained by those who choose the profession of a Loremaster. These are the Alchemists and Loremasters Guilds. They are primarily involved with creation of things magical or otherwise. Loremasters are creators and as such they gain Alchemy to charge magical items, Elixirs to mix potions of power, Runes to fashion runes of power, and Forging to make weapons and armour.
Alchemy is the general alchemical ability to imbed magical spells from the skill of Charming into specific items such as wands, staves, rings or amulets. Enchanting an item is an easy process which requires one skilled in Alchemy and one skilled in Charming. Together they are able to imbed the spell and charge it up for use by any - even those not skilled in the magical arts. As you become more skilled at Alchemy, you will be able to imbed magic in a wider variety of items in addition to being able to pass more charges and imbed mightier spells. Below is an example of an alchemist creating a ring of healing.
- focus ring healhand
Using your skill of Enchanting Items you make the ring into an item suitable for holding the healhand spell. It needs charging, though.
Mage Eshkadeth begins to pass essence to the ring.
- charge ring
You expend your energies and begin to charge the ring.
- The ring is now fully charged with 200 charges of healhand.
Elixirs is the ability to mix potions in empty glass bottles, using the commodity known as Essence. Mixing potions is fairly simple and takes only a short time. Potions can have a variety of beneficial uses, depending on the skill of the mixer. Each full potion carries enough for five draughts. Anybody can quaff a potion, and it is common to find people with a number of potions to fend off the perils of life in a dangerous world. Below is an example of elixir mixing.
- mix blue health in bottle
You begin mixing up a blue health potion in an empty bottle.
- You have finished mixing up the potion.
Runes is the ability to fashion silver runes of power to protect and ward your enemies, and to protect your treasures. Runes are created from pieces of silver ore, and must be fashioned beside specialist equipment or with rare rune fashioning kits. Runes can be fashioned for anyone, and they have a variety of uses. They can be used to banish your enemies, to create sentinels to protect treasures, or even to inform their creator of trespassers. The excellent rune fashioner can create rune staves upon which other runes can be mounted. These rune staves act like totem poles, affecting all who see it.
