Alchemy

Alchemy in Nebulum has been around since men first began to explore the new world. It is partly a categorizing method and an identification method.

For identification, the world is broken down into three basic sections: Sky, Land, and Water. Each of these is further broken down into three primary components. Each of these components has a variety of sub-components which all fit into that category. The various sections can also represent colors.

The Book of Zarc includes an interesting addition to this system by adding a completely new section with five components for living things. The components of that section are Race, Bird, Animal, Fish, and Plant.

Characteristics

There are ten alchemy characteristics. These are taken from the circle which represents everything of Nebulum and the other nine possible variations made by putting one of the three components of the three sections into that circle.
