Special Materials


Adamantine

Blackstone

Blackstone is a stone material that, when affected by magic, animates chaotically. The material is used by drow to create golems called Blackstone Gigants and replace lost limbs, even though prolonged physical contact with the stone causes madness.

Bloodstone

A type of red marble found only in the Vin-Roshu Hills of Ibben, it is popular as a prestigious building material for decorative use. Local folklore says that evil spirits live in the stone and thirst for blood. It may not be coincidence that a large number of murders have taken place in rooms decorated using the stone, though that has not slowed its use.

It is also popular as a material for fireplaces and as a top for furniture such as commodes or tables.

Bronzewood

Ironwood

Orium

Red Steel

When the magical protective effects of cinnabryl have been completely depleted, the remaining substance is red steel. This is a lightweight, dull red metal (it does not glow like cinnabryl and vermeil). Red steel is hard without being brittle, holds an edge very well, and weighs only half as much as steel. Thus, it is in great demand for the making of weapons.

Because red steel is inherently magical, weapons made from it can strike creatures normally hit only by weapons of +1 enchantment, as well as those normally struck only by silver or cold iron weapons. Red steel also holds enchantments well, so in Salvatore it is the preferred base metal for magical armor, weapons, and other devices. The metal's popularity is spreading wherever it is traded, but most red steel remains in Salvatore, due to the efforts of the Inheritors.

It should be noted that red steel does not conduct electricity well. Thus, it is not considered a conductor for shocking grasp spells or similar effects (though it has no real effect against such powerful electrical forces as lightning bolt spells).

Varthallan Steel

Only found in the Varthalla Islands, this steel is difficult to work with and only masterwork items can be made with it. It is resistant to breaking, having above average hardness and hit points and grants a +2 to sunder attempts.
