Iridium (3.5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Yes of course a +2 static bonus to damage means it would cost the same as normal! oh wait then EVERYTHING would be made from this because there is no reason to use steel EVER. Needs price table and adjustment (at least 12k probably closer to 20 for static +2 damage bonus.

More balance issues: A blacksmith's forge gets to about 1500 C; the melting point of iridium is 2466 C; it is very hard to work, it is brittle, should be reflected in penalty to Craft rolls; it is also very rare. An iridium weapon weights 3 times as much as a steel one. )

Iridium is one of the hardest known metals in existence, but it is somewhat brittle. It can be made into an alloy with platinum to offset its bad qualities. Traders of iridium weapons may take non-coin platinum in exchange for it, at a very good price. It has a white-yellow color.

Weapons made out of iridium are very hard, thus their damage done is increased by 2. Only weapons which are prominently metal can be made of iridium. Weapons made this way weigh one more pound than usual.

Iridium has 10 hit points per inch of thickness and hardness 12.

Weapons made from Iridium are treated like masterwork weapons for the purpose of cost. Other items cost 50 gp more if made with iridium.
