Revision as of 00:58, 21 February 2024 by NormalPerson7 (talk | contribs) (Revived in 0.31. The previous iteration of this book is so old it predates the wiki, as does the creation of this article. It seems to have been removed in about 0.11 but that seems unimportant so I've just used Alchemy's history.)

Spellbook.png Book of Transmutation
Primary school Alchemy
A meticulous compendium of research notes, filled with formulae for decomposing and reconstituting all manner of substances. The author appears to have had a strange obsession with becoming a spider, but even if their ultimate aim eluded them, many of the spells detailed therein are nonetheless quite practical.

The book of Transmutation contains a mixture of spells.
