Alina's Helm 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!
Refill Potions - fully replenishes both HP and MP potions.
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 students, is not just one thing but a whole FIELD of mystical sciences!
Alina: In my book, "Alchemy: The Changing Science of Magical Change", I explain just 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 with 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 on 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!
Upon selecting this option for the first time:
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 on your Alchemey 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?
Upon selecting this option while training Mana Alchemy Skill Level:
Alina: Great! There are basically 2 sides of potion-making:
Alina: The first is gathering the 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 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...
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?
- Test Me!
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 after you pass the test.
Alina: The transmutations 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!
- Ready! - begins Transmutation Circle test.
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!
Alina: Are you ready to continue your alchemy training?
Upon selecting this option once fully trained Mana Alchemy Skill Level:
Alina: You have learned everything that I have to teach you, <Character>! Would you like to keep your skills sharp and test some more?
- Rerun Tutorial - see initial dialogue upon selecting 'Train Alchemy!' for the first time.
- Gather Reagents
Alina: This time, you will need to gather these reagents. Those monsters are tricky. Be sure to watch out for AMBUSHES.
- Take Test
Alina: Sorry. I can't give you the alchemy test until you gather the necessary reagents. Those are the rules.
Alina: A short time ago I got asked a VERY surprising question by a VERY knightly man.
Alina: Wonderful, <Character>! You're now high ranked enough for me to sell one of my magical helms to you!
