| Alchemy Association|
|Region||St. Ancestral Mountain Range|
This is a centralized location where the alchemist of Glory City would send in the results of their research. If the research is found to be creditable it will be compiled into a book, which is then distributed to every alchemist. Most of the ancient knowledge of alchemy has been lost so this is necessary to try to advance the craft.
Though the organization is in decline it is still a powerful group, with only the three major families having more influence. The grounds are also very large with a huge courtyard pavilion and a grand association hall. The elder council meets in the council hall, in its center area there is a round table with some chairs and the walls are covered with alchemy problems. The Alchemy Masters exchange their ideas and thoughts this way. They write down the problems that they have encountered during their refining and asks others to answer their questions.
The Alchemy Association is governed by a group of six elders, who are responsible for all major decisions, and the director, who runs the day to day affairs.
- Six-man elder council - four Intermediate Alchemy Masters and two Senior Alchemy Masters
There are three ranks for alchemist: apprentice, master, and grandmaster. Each of these ranks are further split into Primary, Intermediate, and Senior levels. In order to advance in these ranks an alchemist must pass a placement test. The placement test for primary apprentice and primary master are always open to anyone who want to try, but they cost 200 demon spirit coins each time they are attempted. The test are split into three rounds, with each harder then the previous. The first is a written knowledge exam that is made up of twenty pages, which are chosen from a pool of 360 pages. The questions must be completed within two hours and have 90% accuracy. The second part of the exam is a practical on refining.
