Feel free to comment, especially on anything for the sample style I might be missing. It seems a bit thin, even for the first Alchemical style I've written.
Alchemical Style Familiarity†
You have studied the mysteries of an alchemical art. Paying a point for the familiarity gives the following benefits:
- The style's public elixirs and their appropriate forms (not any secret elixirs) are automatically entered into your formulary. You never suffer the -2 for an unlearned elixir with them and may pay points to improve their techniques without seeking training.
- When you deal with another alchemist who has the same perk, neither of you suffers -3 for lack of Cultural Familiarity when making Savoir-Faire rolls, Teaching rolls, and so on.
- You get +1 to identify any of the elixirs your style teaches.
You know one of your style's hidden elixirs that isn't taught publicly. It's entered into your formulary as the public elixirs are.

Edited to add the Secret Elixirs perk. Not that anyone couldn't figure it out, but I figured it was courteous to define a new thing.
