Alchemy Skill
Characters with the Alchemy Skill understand and can manipulate the raw elemental energies that exist within all material, this sort of magical chemistry replaces the chemistry of the real world in the Darkrealm setting, and is based around every substance in the world being imbued with several levels of elemental energy, which can be released and mixed to generate a magical effect, or a new substance. Characters with this skill can create concoctions and potions from rare or common ingredients with the application of the right forces and conditions, these usually take the form of specialties called 'formulae' - but the base skill entails an understanding of how the properties alchemical theory function.
