What is the Apothecary?
The Apothecary is an organization of alchemists dedicated to rediscovering
alchemical knowledge lost over the past few centuries. Whether your
alchemists is going to sit in the courtyard, making and selling potions,
or whether they intend to adventure deep into the dungeons in support
of friends and colleagues, the Apothecary can help.
The Apothecary is open to any alchemist provided they are not already
a member of another guild. A limited number of dungeon based enchanters
may also be members if they support the activities of local alchemists.

How can I join (enchanters)?
The Apothecary is restricted to 1 per Dungeon, but we still have vaccancies.
We lack an Enchanter in just Drax and Central at the moment, though this
information does change occasionally. Enchanters are full members of the
guild and are expected to assist with the transport of potions and the like,
especially for trades arranged via safe haven.
Why Should I Join?
In addition to the
, where you can ask questions about alchemy and alchemists in DungeonWorld,
the guild provides several benefits:
- Comprehensive files on the guild's discoveries, which could
save you an awful lot of research!
- Dungeon Dispensaries which offer a range of services to members
potion, dead toads
, leather apron
- The Dragon Clasp, a handy item which equips to Right Arm
and gives +5 to Health, +5 to Normal Defence and can have alchemical
solutions added to it for further powers (this last point will hopefully
be addressed in the next round of upgrades).
- Access to the Main Crownheart Guildhouse: This can be accessed
either directly from Crownheart or teleportation from any Dungeon Dispensary,
it will contain special areas at a later date.
What's the Fellowship of the Apothecary?
"By Joining the Fellowship
of The Apothecary, you will be putting yourself forward, to perform tasks
for The Apothecary Guild. These tasks may include hunting down sources of
new Alchemicals, tracking and eliminating Dangerous Animates or Constructs,
Dangerous Expeditions to new areas, or any other task. You will be expected
to be available at any time, for any mission or task that is required of
you. If you cannot get to a meeting point in time, funds May be made available
to you, so that you do not get left behind. (Mostly joining a mission will
be voluntary, but all members are expected to go on some mission. Even if
it's exploring a City, or obtaining Charm Components)."

Leather Aprons are favoured by Alchemists and other such folk who work
with alchemicals and dangerous compounds. They serve a duel purpose by
being both protective and also keeping normal clothing clean and free of
stains. Designed and made by the Apothecary guild, Leather Aprons are a
useful addition to any alchemists equipment list. They can only be worn
by Alchemists, since other professions find they interfere with their skills.
Leather Aprons do not last forever, due to the general wear and tear they
are subjected to. Every turn there is a small 2% chance they will wear out...
if you unlucky this CAN happen on the first turn they are purchased. Equipable

Ointment to my skin. Warts are, apparently, guaranteed!
Magical Effects "Warts are an unpleasant lumpy skin condition. It is
said that some alchemists and witches know cures for such things, although
that may, or may not, be true. " Effects were -1 appearance and +3 normal
Incendiary potions may only be bought at dispensaries by members, using
the "L 30" order. They can be used as a sort of grenade, or can be applied
to a fire sprite (X 3241) which adds +3 damage to your sprite. Note that
the sprite inconveniently de-equips itself when you do this, so remember to
