We're super excited to be releasing a limited-time candle for Halloween, but we need your help choosing the name!
Your fingers grasp cold steel as you turn the doorknob tentatively, pushing the battered wooden door open with a gentle creak and spilling golden light out into the hall. The doorway lets into a cluttered workshop, clouded with earthy smelling incense. Through the haze you can make out crooked shelves lining the aged stone walls; leather-bound books and ancient tomes filling every available space.
A fire dances in the corner with flames of gold and green, illuminating a large mahogany table in the centre of the room. Parchment and ink are strewn across the surface, the papers filled with cryptic symbols, complex alchemical tables, incantations and hastily-scrawled notes.

Wooden boxes overflow with oddly shaped gemstones and vials of powdered, effervescent materials. All manner of strange equipment litters the surface, glass bottles of every colour are aglow in the flickering candlelight while dried herbs, insect wings and curious metal implements are scattered in the remaining space.
You look up from the table and see a man. His robes are frayed and discoloured, splashed with the stain of years of creation. The grey in his beard and the lines on his face tell of a vast age but his sapphire eyes sparkle in the candlelight, a look of wisdom mingled with childlike mischief.

The man has a bunsen burner in front of him, a clear solution bubbling furiously atop it while he carefully decants a dark purple solution from a vial. Hearing the door creak open, he looks up from his work and catches your eye… the alchemist is at work.
