The Alchemiter is a gameplay feature in Destroy the Godmodder 2 and Destroy the Godmodder 0. It is originally from the webcomic Homestuck. It allows items to be combined to make more powerful weapons and tools. It has two functions: AND and OR, which combine the appearance and function of two items and combine the appearance of one item with the function of another, respectively.
The Alchemiter's main purpose is to take two items and combine them to create a different item. This process as described in Homestuck is very convoluted and long, so thankfully, most of it was cut out.
The Alchemiter is used like a more advanced Crafting Table. Two items are used as the input, and then the machine will tell the player what item will be created and its assigned level. Every alchemy has a level, with the level determining how much time it will take to create the alchemy. All alchemies take at least one post for the items to be gathered, and then, depending on the level, additional posts for the Alchemiter to properly combine them.
The Alchemiter currently supports up to Level 10 Alchemies. To determine how many posts an alchemy needs to be created for, you take its level and add one. Therefore, Lv. 10 alchemies take 11 posts.
The Alchemiter can combine items in two different ways: && (AND) and || (OR). To describe how these functions impact the output, an example will be shown.
Hammer && Pogo Ride = Pogo Hammer
Hammer || Pogo Ride = Hammerhead Pogo Ride
The && alchemy combined the function of both items, creating a hammer that has pogo-based abilities.
The || alchemy combined the function of one item with the form of the other item, creating a pogo ride shaped like a hammer.
There have been countless items made using the Alchemiter. Some of them are listed here. A more complete list can be found on the DTG Discussion Thread on the Minecraft Forum.
Players are able to add upgrades to the Alchemiter, giving it various other functions.
