Albedo is an additional, or secondary substance which is present in some alchemical ingredients in addition to the primary substance. All alchemical ingredients contain one of six basic substances: aether, hydragenum, quebrith, rebis, vermilion, and vitriol. There are also three additional substances: albedo, nigredo, and rubedo. Any given ingredient may contain only a single basic substance and potentially one additional, or secondary substance.
Albedo potions: If all ingredients used to create a given potion contain albedo as an additional substance, the created potion and any subsequently imbibed potions for 1 hour have reduced toxicity by 1 scale. Meaning if the potion has High toxicity it is reduced to Medium toxicity. Potions with Low toxicity like Cat and Wives' Tears become Non-toxic just like White Honey.
Unlike previous games, Albedo is not simply part of other alchemical ingredients, it must be crafted.
Needed to craft:
- In alchemy, the albedo means "purification" of the matter, and is the second step Magnum opus process.
