Campaign of the Month: September 2018
Shadows of the Rift
Ysarian steel is difficult to temper, for it must be tempered with magical fire—it’s the only thing hot enough to do it.
Weapons forged with Ysarian Steel gain the following properties:
Weapons gain the ability to bypass hardness when sundering/attacking objects (similar to adamantine), ignoring hardness of less than 30. Weapons made of Ysarian steel have 1/2 more hp than normal and a hardness of 30. Weapons made of Ysarian steel are automatically considered to be of masterwork quality (+6,000 gp).
Armor made of Ysarian Steel gain the following properties: DR/5 for light armor; DR/10 for medium armor; DR/15 for heavy armor. Armor made of Ysarian steel is automatically considered to be of masterwork quality (15k/+20k gp).
This lost metal is made of a mixture of iron ore and Rekalite, a rare mineral found deep in the Underworld. The secrets of its forging were lost with the Ysar and have only recently been uncovered.
