Journeyman: You have learned how to prepare more effective and more dangerous concoctions. Choose two JOURNEYMAN potions and/or bombs you know how to make from memory. You can brew other JOURNEYMAN concoctions as you find and learn their recipes.

POTIONS & BOMBS

The following potions and bombs replace the original grenades and the according rules. Each concoction exists in three degrees (NOVICE, JOURNEYMAN, and MASTER). In order to learn a recipe of a higher degree, you need to already know its lower degree versions.
 

ACTIONS

  • Taking a potion or bomb out of a pouch is a Minor Action (Ready).
  • Throwing a bomb in hand is a Ranged Attack (Accuracy: Grenade).
  • Imbibing a potion in hand is a Minor Action (Activate).

Anyone carrying grenades is asking for trouble, whether they have the Alchemy talent or not. All enemies attacking such characters can perform the Kaboom! stunt.

SP Cost : 3 - Kaboom! Your attack detonates either a grenade held by your target or carried by your target. (“Held” means “prepared to throw”; “carried” means “stowed somewhere on their person.”) If your target has the Alchemy talent, their carried grenades may not be chosen. Held grenades must always be chosen before carried grenades, if both are legal targets. If carried grenades are targeted and multiple grenades are being carried, the GM randomly determines the exploding grenade among them. The detonated grenade inflicts its full damage on your target and anyone else within 2m of him. Be aware that if you inflict this stunt on a melee attack, you are within 2m of the exploding grenade, unless you also Skirmish!
