Topic: Alchemists vs. Scholars
While perusing the latest no art Rules & Magic book, I found some odd rules regarding Alchemists and Scholars. Alchemists cost 250 sp / month, and the rules state, "An alchemist reduces the amount of laboratory time needed for any magical research by 1d6 days per project." Scholars cost 100 sp / month, and the rules state, "A scholar reduces the amount of laboratory time needed for any magical research by 1d4 weeks per project." (Emphasis mine.)
There are a few explanations I can think of:
Scholars really are a bargain, and alchemists are overpaid.
"Weeks" should be "days", or vice versa.
Alchemists and scholars can only help with certain types of research (e.g magic-users vs. clerics, potions vs. spells), which the rules neglect to mention.
Any official errata? Any unofficial errata?
