Distill Essence

Prerequisite: Alchemist 10

Benefit: An alchemist can separate an almost imperceivable fragment of the soul of an intelligent creature that dies in their presence and preserve it for restorative purposes. This special process must be performed as a standard action within one round of a creature’s demise. If successful, the alchemist is able to bottle and preserve a portion of the creature’s life force. Once unstoppered and inhaled, this essence replenishes the inhalers vitality, as per the spell lesser restoration. Interfering with an intelligent creature’s natural death process is considered an evil act.

Create: Craft (alchemy) DC 20; Cost 100 gp of alchemical material (phosphorus, quicksilver)

Fail: The essence becomes an asphyx. Panicked and confused, it travels at top speed for 24 hours before calming down enough to begin searching for a host.

Special: The essences of ten intelligent creatures captured in this manner can be stored together. If inhaled in this combined manner, the condensed and powerful distillation revitalizes the inhaler as per the spell restoration.
