Master Alchemist
Alchemy is detailed here.
Rather than cast Spells or work some other form of Magic on the spur of the moment, Alchemists instead concoct potions, inks, dusts, creams, salves, unguents, elixirs, simple explosives, smoke bombs, agents and reagents, glues, poisons, and other such materials.
Alchemists can be quite potent if well provisioned with a stock of pre-made concoctions, and can also earn good livings by selling the products of their labors as anyone can use them.
In campaigns focusing more on hack and slash action, Alchemists with a selection of combat applicable wares including Healing Potions and the like can be very useful, ably filling the role of both an arcanist and a divinist. In a more role-playing oriented game their ability to serve as the Fantasy equivalent of a Gadgeteer allows them to adapt to and interact with the storyline.
NOTE: Some Alchemists also practice a form of Spellcasting Magic in addition to their Alchemical pursuits (purchased and progressed seperately), but they don't have to.
