Alac: Mwhahahahahaha! Not Rolith this time!
Alac: Not this time! No! It is I, Alac, who will take responsibility for this one.
Alac: Oh, no, no Togs. Scary, scary ghosts! Definitely not Togs.
Alac: Nope. That definitely was the togs. Seriously. No thumbs, but they did it.
Alac: *snicker* Rolith? Making jokes? *snort* Don't make me laugh!
Alac: Only about how funny you thinking you're funny is.
Alina: The Fire Orbs are his source of power. If those were destroyed, it should significantly weaken him.
Alina: If he were to take the final step and fuse with he element while he still posses an orb... I don't want to think about what could happen!
A DragonLord's Birthday!
Alina: We're so happy to celebrate with you!
Alina: Oh, <Character>! Hello!
Alina: Cysero said we were going to play a game! But ...I didn't expect THIS
Alina: He made it sound good, at any rate. But we've been trapped here for hours by these monsters after we each rolled a 1 on our dice!
Alina: But now that YOU have come, <Character>, we're free! Thank you so much!
Alina: Err...Sorry Cysero. I have some very important alchemical... things to do. I've, er, gotta re-draw my transmutation circles. Yeah.
Outside before her shop opened
Alina: Yes, I think I've finally found my shop! Now I just need to open it. Soon, very soon...
Alina's Mana Potion Shop
Alina: Hello, I'm Alina, and I'd like to welcome you to my Potion Shop! I can refill your potions or train you in the art of Alchemy and Potion-crafting!
Alina: My student, Reens, wrote me a letter a while back and said that there were NO mana alchemists in Falconreach!
Alina: Normally I work in Swordhaven, as King Alteon's Royal Alchemist, but I couldn't let the heroes of Lore here go without mana potions!
Alina: I began studying alchemy as a very young girl. It's fascinating to take objects and, using the magic of science, transmute them into entirely NEW things!
Alina: You can train Health alchemy with Reens next door or train your Mana alchemy skills here, with me!
Alina: Reens has been an excellent student. I'm sure you'll be just as adept, once you start your training. As you get better, so will your potions!
Alina: As a Royal Alchemist, I'm qualified to train not just potion-making, but to train people as full-fledged Alchemists!
Alina: Maybe someday I'll expand my School of Alchemy here, and train YOU as an Alchemist, too!
Alina: There you go, fully re-stocked potions! These potions won't spoil, but they're tasty enough that you might want to drink them outside of battle!
What is Alchemy?
Alina: Alchemy, as my teachers always said, and as I say to my student, is not just one thing but a whole FIELD of mystical sciences!
Alina: In my book, “Alchemy: The Changing Science of Magical Science”, I explained what Alchemy IS, both today and in the past
Alina: Alchemy deals with changing one or more materials into something else entirely, which is called transmutation
Alina: You can learn basic Alchemy under my tutelage or Reens, but there are other kinds, like changing objects into gold or other materials
Alina: Mana Alchemy uses the building blocks of Lore because when you're using it in battle, you're tapping into the heart of Magic of Lore
Alina: The special potion bottles Reens has devised will let you upgrade the bottles themselves instead of making more potions
Alina: We're making more advances in Alchemy every day! It is an exciting time to be an Alchemist!
Alina: So, you're ready to begin training your alchemy skill! This is so exciting...opening a new mind to the miracles of modern alchemy!
Alina: Now, let's begin working your skills by training your Mana Potions
Alina: As you level up and start using more skills, these potions will make all the difference in a hard fought battle!
Alina: Ready to get started?
Alina: Great! There are basically 2 sides of potion-making:
Alina: The first is gathering materials that you will need for your transmutation. We call those materials ”Reagents”
Alina: The second part is performing the transmutation using the Transmutation Circle
Alina: To begin with, I will give you a list of reagents that you will have to gather from the woods. All of the reagents will appear in your temporary inventory
Alina: The reagent list will look like this:
Alina: The reagents that you will need to gather will appear in RED
Alina: Once you have gathered the reagents, they will appear in GREEN, like this
Alina: In this example, you still need to find the Gelf. Once you have all the required reagents, it will look like...
Alina: ...like THIS! Once you have gathered the reagents that you need, then I will test your knowledge of the Transmutation Circle
Alina: Ready to try a sample test?
Alina: THIS is the Transmutation Circle
Alina: You have until your focus fails to pass the test and get your alchemy skill to the next level. The blue bar shows your focus
Alina: If you don't pass the test by the time you're out of focus, you will have to gather new reagents and try again
Alina: This is where you can see your current skill level, how much your potions currently recover your mana...
Alina: ... and how much your improved mana potions will recover for you after you pass the test
Alina: The Transmutation tests will get harder and harder as you level up
Alina: Each of these smaller circles represents a single Transmutation. Once you draw it correctly, you will get a check mark...
Alina: ...like THIS! That means “one down, three to go”
Alina: Here comes the REALLY fun part. Let's see how well you use the Transmutation Circle itself!
Alina: The gem you want to start at will glow, click it, then drag your mouse to the next glowing gem
Alina: Completing the pattern will earn you a check mark!
Alina: I'll give you the reagents you need for your first attempt, let's give it a try!
Alina: Wow! You might have a natural gift for alchemy! You passed the first test, and your alchemy skill is now level 6!
Alina: Great job. Come back anytime that you want to continue your training!
After the first time:
Alina: Are you ready to continue your alchemy training?
Alina: This time you will need to gather these reagents. Those monsters are tricky. Be sure to watch out for AMBUSHES.
If you try to take the test without the regents:
Alina: Sorry. I can't give you the alchemy test until you gather the necessary reagents. Those are the rules.
Alina: Wonderful, <Character>! You're now high ranked enough for me to sell one of my magical helms to you!
Opens Alina's Helm Shop
Alina: Oh! Oh my! You never said- I didn't know- I can't believe- Oh goodness!
Alina: What is THAT?
Alina: And just what ARE you asking? I want to hear you say it.
Alina: Oh! Rolith, I-
Alina: My potions!
Alina: Rolith? How do you know what they're saying?
Alina: You... speak... Tog?
Alina: I think there are MANY things I have left to learn about you.
Alina: What are they saying?
Alina: Of me?!
Alina: What did he say?
Alina: Awwww! Poor things! Don't worry, little ones, Rolith will still have time for y-
Alina: Rolith! <Character>! I'm so glad you're here!
Alina: I like your face, too! And so do the togs!
Alina: I told the togs they could come to live with us.
Alina: It was the only way to reassure them that I'm not going to steal you from them.
Alina: No, you don't understand. They're going to LIVE with us.
Alina: And they're sleeping on YOUR side of the bed.
Alina: Come on, Rolith, let's get back to my shop. <Character>, you're welcome to come to my potion shop, too!
Alina: Yes, oh yes!
Feast of Welcomegiving!
Alina: Blue sourberry smoothies are my contribution! I call them BlueCows. They pack such a punch, BlueCow gives you dings!
Captain Rolith's Revenge
Alina: Rolith, what happened?!
Alina: Rolith...you can't contain the holidays in a little box and keep everything and everyone out.
Alina: That's no fun for everyone.
Alina: Now you have to share the fun.
Alina: You, <Character> and the moglins could have worked together to have a safe and happy holiday. You still can.
Frostval 2011 (Act 16)
Alina: We hope those poor moglins will recover soon. I understand one of them is selling some of the silly hats.
Alina: I think you have enough silly hats.
Alina: Merry Frostval, <Character>!
Alina: These beautiful starlight weapons were crafted by Tomix!
Takes you to the Starlight Weapons shop.
Alina: I think we can come to compromise, Artix...
Alina: No butts about it, honey, we fight together from now on!
Alina: I heard from Rolith about your return, <Character>, I'm happy that you're here and unharmed.
Alina: We're with you, <Character>!
One Step Ahead
Alina: You needn't worry. I've got this under control.
Alina: Ah, also, I've finally set up my healing station. Endnai, send any wounded over to it.
Alina: Reens is there right now as well, preparing potions. I'll join her shortly.
Darkness is Coming
Alina: Reens is inside, cooking up health and mana potions. We might need antidotes as well. The Cultists-
Alina: Rolith, if you start a fight with them again, the Rose will be the least of your problems...
Alina: Some of the other people are experiencing these strange symptoms as well. I don't know what's going on, <Character>. And I hate not knowing.
Alina: This is going to be a problem, Elysia. I couldn't... fix them. It's an affliction of the mind, not the body.
