The Alchemist


The Alchemist

The Alchemist desires you to practice. Walking past the library where you encountered The Scholar is a laboratory where The Alchemist of the Fae steadily holds a shimmering liquid in a vessel, almost as if containing light itself. He is identical to The Scholar in appearance. He tells you they are one and the same and both engage in the same activities, as one only fully achieves a level of understanding by using what they learned and studied. He represents the practical application of acquired knowledge. He tests and evaluates his experiment. If he is successful, he moves onward. If he fails, he re-evaluates his steps. He learns from and records his errors, making another attempt with his newfound insights. He informs you that failure is the most valuable teacher. Let’s test what we’ve learned.
