    Need help with a fantasy word

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by katica, Mar 2, 2011.

    What kind of room would a wizard create potions in?

    I've been calling it the laboratory, but I realized that's more of a mad scientist thing than a wizard thing.

    Mad scientists do experiments in laboratories and wizards create potions in ___________________. What is the blank?

    I think an apothecary is more of a business establishment than a lab.... I would probably go with workshop.

    The only thing about workshop is that it sounds Harry Potter-ish. Of course, if that's what you're going for, great.

    Assuming he is doing more than just creating potions, maybe a reliquary would fit. Could have it store magical artifacts and whatnot, and that's a nice sorcery-sounding word.

    Perhaps he studies things in there, maybe observatory.

    Hi,

    Lair, sanctum, chamber? But apothecary works well to since its what we now call a pharmacy.

    Cheers.

    I have heard the room being called:

    1.lab
    2.workshop
    3.if making potions, apothecary would work.

    I do like the potionary, as a room for making potions.

    You can use the general terms; lab or workshop
    or get more precise in identifying the room as to its purpose.

    Generally, most people call the place where a wizard make his concoctions a lab or laboratory.

    You can call it whatever you like really. Laboratory. Labrynth. Study. Tower. Pharmacy.

    An apothecary is very similar to a pharmacist.
