New class. Only worked on the base class so far and wanted to get some feedback on it. Haven't really put a huge amount of consideration into its various aspects as this is a work in progress that I'm looking to hear ideas about and see if it's heading in the right direction or not. Got the idea from Steampunkette (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showsinglepost.php?p=19598629&postcount=19).

I like where this is going!

It's going to be a nightmare to balance though. I can see you've already given yourself some room with the d6 hit dice...

Though as an engineer by trade, I can confirm most of us are pretty fragile IRL. Too much reading and not enough exercise! And I guess alchemists had a worrying tendency to drink mercury, which isn't so good for your health either.

Heh, the thinking behind having Con as a proficient saving throw was that they'd have to survive their own experiments long enough to learn what they know :D
