In-Game Text

"We finish the brief hieroglyphic consideration of our Monad, which we would sum up in one only hieroglyphic context: The Sun and the Moon of this Monad desire that the Elements in which the tenth proportion will flower, shall be separated, and this is done by the application of Fire.

– John Dee, Monas Hieroglyphica, Theorem X, 1564

Alchemy is the hermetic study of the elements of the natural order in their correspondance to the grand harmony of the heavens and the perennial melody of an ordered universe. Learning the secrets of Alchemy allows you to construct several Alchemical implements with which to modify the Chymicall makeup of items along the cardinal impurity dimensions of Mercury, Sulphur and Lead, so as to to promote their higher Alchemical purity, which in turn, in the grand harmony of the cosmos, always corresponds to better net effect.
