You are trained in the craft of alchemy. This is a Craft skill.

When you use the Craft skill to make a particular sort of item, the DC for checks involving the creation of that item are typically as given on the following table.

Item Craft Skill Craft DC
Acid Alchemy 1 15
Alchemist's fire, smokestick, or tindertwig Alchemy 1 20
Antitoxin, sunrod, tanglefoot bag, or thunderstone Alchemy 1 25

1: You must be a spellcaster to craft any of these items.

Special: A gnome has a +2 racial bonus on Craft (alchemy) checks because gnomes have sensitive noses.

To make an item using Craft (alchemy), you must have alchemical equipment and be a spellcaster. If you are working in a city, you can buy what you need as part of the raw materials cost to make the item, but alchemical equipment is difficult or impossible to come by in some places. Purchasing and maintaining an alchemist's lab grants a +2 circumstance bonus on Craft (alchemy) checks because you have the perfect tools for the job, but it does not affect the cost of any items made using the skill.

Synergy: If you have 5 ranks in a Craft skill, you get a +2 bonus on Appraise checks related to items made with that Craft skill.
