Basic Information

The alchemical art of gold-making. Nowadays gold-making is what practically everyone thinks of when they think of alchemy, though other goals of alchemists included the universal solvent, elixir of life, and such.

Game and Story Use

  • Actually, this explains fairly well the prevalence and impressively low value of gold in many fantasy games.
