Created by an artificer or other practitioner of arcane studies, an alchemical homunculus is a construct designed to aide its creator. Homunculi are simple creatures designed to obey simple commands. They can operate autonomously, but rarely perform well doing so. Homunculi vary greatly in form and function. The creator needs a workshop to create one, the raw materials, and the skill necessary to create one. Alchemical homonculi differ from arcane homonculi in minor ways. The two are rarely distinguishable.
