Alchemy has 4 levels of creation.

  1. Eating or using the ingredient raw.
  2. Combining it with another ingredient of the same benefit.
  3. Combining it with 2 other ingredients of the same benefit.
  4. Combining it with 3 other ingredients with the same benefit.

Example #1:
Beehive Husk if eaten will give a resistance to poison for a few turns; this is a level 1 combination. If combined with Garlic, it becomes a level 2 and more potent. Lasting a day. If combined with charred skeever hide, then it will become a level 3 and even more potent, lasting a week.

Every alchemical benefit is -2 to the roll.
