Permissions and credits
Started this project as a number of fixes to Balanced Decoction mod, as always it grew into something more.

This mod makes decoctions more useful, and not too overpowered.

DEATHMARCH - is a balanced version, which has increased stats and lowered toxicity to 60, but has limits and is more about getting results a bit faster. Werewolf and Fiend Decoctions now has even lower toxicity. (15 and 30)
LIGHT - has slightly OP and maybe in some cases OP stats. Toxicity is reduced to 50.
VANILLA -this version is for those who likes vanilla decoctions but feels that they take too much toxicity. Toxicity is reduced to 50.
