Starmetal (Eberron Nights Supplement)
From D&D Wiki
Starmetal is the rarest of the magical materials, forged from meteorites, the husks of godlings cast out of Yu-Shan, the Heavenly City. Other sources report that Starmetal is created when a god is killed - each god having their own star that shines brightly in the night sky over Creation. When the god dies, its star falls to Creation as starmetal. The stars of gods who pass away through more natural causes — by being forgotten and having their domain fall into utter oblivion — merely fade from the sky.
Starmetal is especially attuned to the Sidereal Exalted. Starmetal has a special property that re-weaves fate, guiding starmetal weapons to strike especially lethal blows, while starmetal armor can turn aside all but the mightiest attacks.
Starmetal is also sometimes referred to as meteoric iron and is sometimes used to make items that can bind or command spirits. Sidereals are often able to locate raw starmetal or starmetal artifacts due to their incredible foresight — or through their Heavenly connections, either to be aware of the divine executions that force stars to fall from the sky, or making them happen in the first place. In Autochthonia, Starmetal is the material used by the Maker (Autochthon) to forge the gods. Given the rarity of this magical material, items forged from it are often simplistic in design, using the least amount of Starmetal necessary to accomplish the task for which it was created.
