Alchemy is many things, a speculative science and philosophy that encompasses and enfolds many different theorems and beliefs. At its core, Alchemy is quite simple – An endeavor to take common elements and transmute them into something greater.
This quest for transmutation was used by the alchemists of old in an attempt to finally achieve the Magnum Opus, the Great Work, the turning of a base substance such as lead into the perfect form of gold. Success elluded them.
