The alchemy lab is located in the basement of the church. This is where you craft prayers, books, and alchemy equipment.

See alchemy and sermons for more information.

Location[edit | edit source]

A part of the alchemy lab

The alchemy lab is quite a vast area of multiple rooms below the church, consisting of several logically unconnected areas, which allow workstation placement.

The picture shows the northern part with the initial furnishing, with (from left to right) some graphics on the walls, the study table, more graphics, a trunk and the workbench to build all the other stations, as well as the staircase leading up into the church.

Further south is more room for building, and then a corridor, allowing access to the morgue. To the east a corridor leads, if you turn the first corridor north, through the sacrifice zone into the dungeon, or, if you take the second corridor north, to the cellar and up to your home. If you keep going east, the corridor leads onwards to the trade office and village.

To be able to use those corridors, you have to clear out the rubble there first.

Trunk[edit | edit source]

Two trunks

The laboratory comes already furnished with one trunk, that even contains a few of alchemical components. It is not possible to build an additional one, but you may build alchemy racks, bookshelves or scrollshelves to store your stuff.

Study Table[edit | edit source]

The alchemy laboratory starts out with a study table already installed (though the initial location is not ideal). Most items in the game can be studied for a large number of red, green, or blue tech points. Each type of item can be studied only once.

The Circumspect circumspect effect from eating a
cake
or a
grape pie
can be used to increase the yield by adding Blue Tech Point1 to the gain from studying each item.

The study table requires both
Faith
and
Science
to operate. Faith can be obtained by holding a sermon in the church, from confessionals, or from operating the buffet tent. Science can be obtained from decomposing

After studying an object, its description might say it is decomposable into a solution, powder, or extract. This refers to the alchemy apparatus that needs to be used to process it.

Distillation Cube[edit | edit source]

A distillation cube decomposes suitable materials into extracts for use in alchemy. To be used with the distillation cube, a material must first be studied at the study table and have an extract as a decomposition product. Unlike the hand mixer or alchemy mill, processing an extract proceeds automatically, but only one batch at a time.

Distillation Cube II[edit | edit source]

A distillation cube II decomposes suitable materials into extracts for use in alchemy. To be used with the distillation cube II, a material must first be studied at the study table and have an extract as a decomposition product. Using the distillation cube II yields more material than tier I and is considerably faster. Unlike the hand mixer or alchemy mill, processing an extract proceeds automatically, but only one batch at a time.
