Pardon me -- I meant to reference the rules for combination potions in Pyramid 3-28 (page 7). Or did you mean in addition to those?

Seems reasonable enough. I guess if someone's willing to pay triple for the recipe (not so bad really) and take a -20 to their Alchemy check (yikes), they deserve a Strength potion that would stack with another like itself.

Actually, that does make more sense. +50% may list "avoiding drawbacks," but +100% goes to things that "ignore or overrule something important to game balance." I think the latter is a fair description of dodging the risk attached to a third dose of Celerity.

Thanks for your help!
