Obedience Practice the Divine Experiment by following
the procedure to transmute lead into gold; this process
normally requires a philosopher’s stone, but for this
obedience, the thaumaturge can substitute any material for
lead—it’s not the actual transmutation that functions as the
obedience, but the act of going through the motions. Gain
a +4 profane bonus against transmutation effects.

Of the demon lords, there is a perception that Haagenti is
among the least destructive and most reasonable. Of course,
this impression is little more than smoke and mirrors,
for Haagenti is as cruel and sadistic as demon lords get—
the usefulness of his alchemical creations and wondrous
inventions is simply his method of subtly influencing the
development of society. Many scholars believe that Haagenti
is responsible for guiding many of humanity’s greatest minds
to discover new and deadly methods of inflicting destruction
and pain on each other. The greatest secret he has revealed to
mortal life is the method of transmuting lead into gold using
a philosopher’s stone, but he is the author of other secrets,
such as the method of creating retrievers or the basis of drow
Haagenti has a myriad of forms, and can change his
appearance at will—he typically appears as a member of the
same race as those he is interacting with. Rumor holds that
his true form is that of a demonic winged bull.
Haagenti’s realm on the Abyss is called Cerebulim.
This region is an immense collection of laboratories,
libraries, torture chambers, bestiaries, and other chambers
that Haagenti can shift around and rearrange to suit his
preferences, causing them to grind into new layouts with the
thrum of immense, unseen clockwork gears.
