An alchemical goad is a thin liquid catalyst that can be mixed with or injected into any other alchemical material that normally creates an effect that forces its target to make a saving throw. The result of this combination is an increase to the saving throw’s DC. The increase is in the form of a +2 alchemical bonus for a standard alchemical goad, a +4 alchemical bonus for a greater alchemical goad, and a +6 alchemical bonus for a sovereign alchemical goad.
