Brew Potion (Ex)
At 1st level, alchemists receive Brew Potion as a bonus feat. An alchemist can brew potions of any formulae he knows (up to 3rd level), using his alchemist level as his caster level. The spell must be one that can be made into a potion. The alchemist does not need to meet the prerequisites for this feat.
At 1st level, an alchemist discovers how to create a mutagen that he can imbibe in order to heighten his physical prowess at the cost of his personality. It takes 1 hour to brew a dose of mutagen, and once brewed, it remains potent until used. An alchemist can only maintain one dose of mutagen at a time—if he brews a second dose, any existing mutagen becomes inert. As with an extract or bomb, a mutagen that is not in an alchemist’s possession becomes inert until an alchemist picks it up again.
When an alchemist brews a mutagen, he selects one physical ability score—either Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution. It’s a standard action to drink a mutagen. Upon being imbibed, the mutagen causes the alchemist to grow bulkier and more bestial, granting him a +2 natural armor bonus and a +4 alchemical bonus to the selected ability score for 10 minutes per alchemist level. In addition, while the mutagen is in effect, the alchemist takes a –2 penalty to one of his mental ability scores. If the mutagen enhances his Strength, it applies a penalty to his Intelligence. If it enhances his Dexterity, it applies a penalty to his Wisdom. If it enhances his Constitution, it applies a penalty to his Charisma.
--Every morning, he may use his knowledge of trancandental alchemy to mix two Extracts of particular power. Only he may administer them do to their synergy with his advanced study of trancandental alchemy. If another tries to administer the extract it fails.

This bandoleer holds six pouches along its length and a satchel at the hip. Each pouch has a stiff leather flap that can be secured against jostling with a clasp (requiring a move action to open or close) or left unfastened for easier access. The pouches and satchel each contain a number of loops and ties for further securing equipment. The sash buckles at the shoulder, and can be freed with a sharp tug in an emergency as a move action.

Growing up in England during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms, Richard was the son of a clerk named Frederick and a midwife named Molly. Fredrick’s father fought for King Charles against the rebellious House of Lords who made up parliament at the time.
The lords were triumphant and installed Oliver Cromwell as dictator. Being a common born officer, Fredrick was drawn and quartered.
Incenced, Richard entertained plots to kill Cromwell. He romanticized the rebel Guy Fawkes who very nearly packed enough powder under Parliament to blow the whole building to Hell in 1605. He’d been caught, but what if he could discover a more efficient explosive? One that might destroy Parliament with a single bucket instead of a wheelbarrow full, for example?
He scraped together the coin to travel to Poland and sucessfuly found students of the legendary Rabi Lowe, a trancandental alchemist who brought to life a man of clay to defend the Jews of Prague. With some work he won an apprenticeship and learned the basics of how to make just the explosives he desired and so much more. Medicines of miraculous healing. Formulas that would make him a feral warrior. His teacher told him, though, that he must learn now through experience, so he traveled to Jamaica, thinking to privateer against Cromwell while testing his alchemy on the high seas.
