Location: Reens' Shop, Xan Bossfight, Going East, Flashpoint, Battle For the Eastern Hills!, To Be A Giant!, Final Battle!, Princess-napped, Critical Failure!, Feast of Welcomegiving!
Reens: Hi, I'm Reens. Welcome to my potion shop. I can refill your potions for you, or I can begin your training in Potion Making and Alchemy!
Reens: I'm so glad that I finally got my shop set up just the way I wanted it. It feels like I was unpacking for years.
Reens: Can you keep a secret? It really took me this long because I'd lost my official Royal Alchemist outfit. I couldn't really open the shop until I found it.
Reens: Now that I've got my outfit on again, I can legally train beginner alchemists! I can't teach you much, but I can get you started.
Reens: If you pass my tests then you can find a higher level trainer, and eventually you can become a Transmutation Grandmaster!
Reens: I wanted to continue my own training in Swordhaven but I was so excited to get out into the world and stark helping people with my potions!
Reens: I've also been inventing new potions! I just made a fizzy, sugary one that I call Sodaburp! Want to try some?
Reens: You got it! Your healing and mana potions have been refilled. Remember to use them before the expiration date I printed on the bottle.
What is Alchemy?
Reens: I specialize in crafting healing potions but there is a lot more to alchemy than that! It's a whole field of the mystical sciences!
Reens: Alchemy deals with changing one or more materials into something else entirely, which is called transmutation.
Reens: When you learn basic alchemy from me, you will be altering the way that a standard healing potion will affect you.
Reens: This change comes from the way that the standard healing potion interacts with the potion bottles that you always carry around.
Reens: That way, you only need to upgrade your bottles once, instead of making more and more powerful healing potions every time. Pretty cool, huh?
Reens: This is just one of the advances that we've made in modern alchemy to make everyones lives easier!
Reens: Are you ready to continue your alchemy training?
Reens: So, you're ready to begin training your alchemy skill! This is so exciting... opening an new mind to the miracles of modern alchemy!
Reens: Since I will be teaching you basic alchemy, I will only be teaching you how to upgrade your Healing Potions.
Reens: That may not seem impressive to you, but you'll see what a huge difference it makes in battle as you level up.
Reens: Ready to get started?
Yes - Takes you into the tutorial
Not yet - Takes you back to the main menu
Reens: Great! There are basically 2 sides of potion-making:
Reens: The first is gathering the materials that you will need for your transmutation. we call those materials "Reagents".
Reens: The second part is performing the transmutation using the Transmutation Circle.
Reens: To begin, 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.
Reens: The reagent list will look like this:
Reens: The reagents that you need to gather will appear in RED.
Reens: Once you have gathered the reagents, they will appear in GREEN, like this:
Reens: In this example, you still need to find the Pretzel Root. Once you have all the required reagents, it will look...
Reens: ...Like THIS! Once you have gathered the reagents that you need, then I will test your knowledge of the Transmutation Circle.
Reens: Ready to try a sample test?
Test Me! - Continues on
Reens: THIS is the Transmutation Circle.
Reens: You have THREE tries to pass the test and get your alchemy skill to the next level.
Reens: If you don't pass the test by your third try... then you will have to gather new reagents and try again.
Reens: This is where you can see your current skill level, how much your potions currently heal for...
Reens: ...and how much your improved healing potions will heal for after you pass the test.
Reens: The transmutation tests will get harder and harder as you level up.
Reens: Each of these smaller circles represents a single Transmutation. Once you draw it correctly, you will get a check mark...
Reens: ...Like THIS! That means "one down, three to go."
Reens: here comes the REALLY fun part. lets see how well you use the Transmutation circle itself!
Reens: First, I will show you the circle that you need to draw, be sure to PAY ATTENTION!
Reens: Then all you have to do is RE-DRAW the same circle that I just showed you, and hit the FINISHED button!
Reens: Now, let's see how well you do!
Ready - Takes you to the simple test
If you fail.....you have to redo the tutorial all over again
Once you've got it right...
Reens: Wow! You might have a natural gift for alchemy! You passed the first test, and your alchemy level is now level 6!
Reens: Great Job! Come back anytime that you want to continue your training!
Reens: This time you will need to gather these reagents. [Look at the picture for yours! They're not always the same!] Those monsters are tricky. Be sure to watch out for AMBUSHES.
If you don' have the Reagents....
Reens: Sorry. I can't give you the alchemy test until you gather the necessary reagents. Those are the rules.
If you have the Reagents....
Reens: Now, let's see how well you do!
If you see this, your skill level is not high enough. You must be a level 10 Alchemist to access this shop.
Reens: Well done, <Character>! You're now ranked high enough for me to sell one of my magical rings to you. Take a look!
Done - Takes you back to main menu
Reens: Ash, Cysero and the Guardians are still looking for people in the wreckage and helping who they can.
Reens: What's going on?
Reens: Konnan has just disappeared...
Reens: Now Yulgars leaving too?
Reens: What about Aria?
Reens: Right. We're all set.
Battle For the Eastern Hills!
Reens: We should go..
Reens: Looks like they're ready to start.
Reens: <Characte>! Thank goodness you've arrived! Alac, the mana-potion master, and I have been talking about how to defeat Drakonnan and escape.
Reens: Be very careful though. I suspect, with the amount of power Konnan has absorbed, that he's becoming more elemental than man.
To Be A Giant!
Reens: Well... things have been pretty quiet lately, actually.
Reens: The princesses could be anywhere though...
Reens: Thank goodness you’re here!
Reens: He said the rewards would be loot, and they would be “phat”, whatever that means
Reens: We could have gathered twice as many alchemical ingredients if we hadn’t played this game…
Reens: I’ve…um…got to help Alac. She’s teaching me some new things. And I’ve got to show her my new garden. Of growing things. Sorry!
Feast of Welcomegiving!
Reens: No Thyme Like the Present Chicken wings are MY contribution! Enjoy!
