Alchemist's laboratory

This article is about the current version of DF.
Note that some content may still need to be updated.

In very old versions of Dwarf Fortress, an alchemist's laboratory was a workshop used to make bars of soap (then a simple trade good) from lye and tallow. To build an alchemist's laboratory, you had to have three clear glass vials. The workshop's function was taken over by the dedicated soap maker's workshop in version 0.31.01, and the workshop, the skill, and the labor were buried from view in the game files. Toady One plans to eventually return the workshop to the game in a different form, but for now the alchemist's laboratory languishes in the game's code graveyard.
