    (8/2004)New Compositions:

     

    BLOODSTEEL

  • Steel slaked in blood during its forging. The steel is tinged red, and is usually forged by priests or mages and is inherently magickal, though it does interfere with casting. {Non-Castable}

     

     

    BLOODSTONE

  • Gemstone, not the real world version of heliotrope. Dark black with blood red veins or spots. Tinged by chaos and darkness, inherently magickal. Said to be formed when the sacrificial blood during Taathian sacrifices spills across obsidian. {Castable}

     

     

    CUPRUM

  • An alchemic metal, coppery in color. Only formed through alchemic processes, is highly prized in the discipline of alchemy and in ritualistic magick. Can be enchanted, though items made with it will interfere with runespells.

     

     

    DARKSTEEL

    QUICKSILVER

  • (Not mercury) In Aradath quicksilver is a bright silver metal; the magickal qualities in the ore make it appear to be constantly shifting. Ripples and other patterns will appear to dance within the metal itself. {Non-Castable}

     

     

    RUNESILK

  • A silk strengthened by magick. It is very fine and very light. Has runespells woven into the fabric as part of the weaver's art. Shimmers slightly when it moves. Stronger than silk, magickal in nature.
