The Art of Transformations study group is currently focusing on Dennis William Hauck’s primer, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Alchemy.
Where else can one combine chemistry and philosophy to turn base metal into gold while discovering a magical elixir to prolong life? Here’s a simple and straightforward guide to alchemy that explains its basic principles. Written by one of the world’s few practicing alchemists, it’s a concise reference guide that provides easy-to-follow information so that anybody can be a wizard-in-training.
