Salt in Wounds Alchemists: 5th Edition Version

The Alchemist class for 5th Edition was designed by the exceptionally talented Rich Howard and originally published on Tribality. A full fledged Alchemist supplement (featuring 7 total tradition options) is available now through Drive Through RPG. Information below posted with permission.
