I would like a good site relating to the basics of renaissance alchemy, mysticism, and the occult.?

magic, air, energy

I am most interested in Paracelsus, John Dee, and the Rosicrucian Brotherhood; and various theories on how they are connected.

The Illustrated Guide to Color Alchemy
(( This is an in-character handbook to all the different regional armor dyes, political garments, noble garments and other clothing worn in DarkAges, a game world created by Nexon, who owns the copyright to all images included here. This site contains VERY LARGE GRAPHICS saved at maximum resolution to preserve detail, so regular modem users will need patience. ))
Many, many Aislings and Mundanes obliged us by posing for these sketches, by helping us tailor, and by sharing the details of how different garments are created. We wish to thank them for their generosity and kindness.
– Raeven and Maiala Kyrkonnel –
Addendum: The new dyes on Oren Island, Lynith Beach, new armors since the discovery of Medenia and the Ball Attire have been added by me, Estara – Creant information by Nigma of Undine. Any mistakes I made are not the responsibilty of mother and daughter Kyrkonnel. I also apologize for not being able to keep up the beautiful design of the handbook exactly.
