 +Alchemy is a multipower framework that must have the following limitations -
 +  * Delayed Effect (May have number of potions equal to INT; +1/4) 
 +  * Extra Time (6 Hours, Character May Take No Other Actions, -3 3/4)
 +  * OAF Fragile (-1 1/4)
 +  * Requires A Skill Roll And A Skill Roll (Alchemy and Tap; -3/4)
 +  * Gestures (Requires both hands; Complex; -3/4)
 +  * Concentration (0 DCV; -1/2)
 +  * Conditional Power (Requires alchemical equipment to prepare, and the necessary ingredients. -1/2)
 +  * Restrainable (-1/2)
 +For a total limitation of **-7 3/4**
 +In order to create the potion, 6 hours of time must be spent making the potion with the correct ingredients and equipment, with various runic gestures and incantations. ​ The active points of the potion determine the modifier to the Alchemy skill roll (-1 for every 10 active points of the potion). ​ And then a Tap roll is made to channel mana into the potion (or enchanted object if creating a magical item).
 +All the limitations occur in the preparation of the potion, except for "​restrainable"​ which simulates that someone attempting to use a potion, cannot do so if tied up, grabbed or otherwise prevented from the obvious moves necessary, and "OAF fragile"​ which simulated the container for the finished potion (as well as the alchemical equipment used in preparation).
 +Potions can use the charges limitation, if they have a duration of time over which their effect occurs. ​ If they do use charges, the must also cost END (only to activate for **-1/4**), and have that limitation as well - to represent the mana transfer from the ley lines into the potion.
 +Many potions are thanks to the [[http://​​hero/​|Fantasy Hero Treasure Trove]] of Bob Hall.
