Question[edit]

But whats it do? And the price for weapons needs to change. as written a dagger cost as much as a greatsword. should cost based on size--Name Violation 00:12, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Its still a first draft, but thank you for your critique, it will prove very helpful. --Grim914 22:57, 25 March 2010 (CST)

Question 2[edit]

While you're still in the drafting phases here's some food for thought: something can't be simultaneously more dense and lighter, it can be one or the other, but not both. Perhaps, if the metal is stronger you can make lighter weapons out of it (they would have less material), so maybe this is what you mean? JazzMan 05:07, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Yes, i will include that for more clarity, thank you. --Grim914 23:11, 26 March 2010 (CST)
simultaneously more dense and lighter, it can be one or both.
Ummm... Simeltaneously and both have the same meaning in this context, please elaborate on what you mean by this :)
Also, please proofread, there are a number of spelling errors I noticed. Other than that, it's good for a draft, I look forward to seeing the completed version :)--Vrail 18:38, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Oops, fixed. My fingers were faster than my brain. JazzMan 04:53, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
Thank you ryan and thank you Jazzman831. Your criticism is well appreciated. --Grim914 0:44, 27 March 2010 (CST)

Power like whoa![edit]

This stuff is waaaaaay powerful, and I don't think it costs nearly enough. You essentially create an unholy, keen weapon AND get an improved oversized weapon/monkey grip combo PLUS +5 SoH and -5 lbs (which would make a dagger weightless, probably other weapons as well). An unholy keen mithral greatsword costs no less than 22,050gp (technically it should be 36,050 gp, but dark mithral doesn't count as a magical weapon); add all the rest of the goodies and you should at a minimum double it to 44k (72k). But you can get it here for the low low price of 7,000. Yes please! Note that the profit margin goes up as you get smaller, because magical enhancements cost the same regardless of weapon size.

A similar analysis can be made for armor, though interestingly that's probably not as far off base as the weapon properties. JazzMan 16:17, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

I was thinking of making it much more expensive, but I wasn't sure. Well, now I know, Thank you again Jazzman831 --Grim914 11:45, 28 March 2010 (CST)

Formatting Template[edit]

Who put this template up? I was looking over the equipment template page and I see nothing wrong with the formatting here. This is also a viable material and can be used within, or without the campaign setting, and therefore can is correctly placed here. If I am mistaken on anything please inform me, however as far as I can see this has proper formatting. --Vrail 06:17, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

I didn't put up the tag, but this should be following the DnD Material Preload, and it does not. I'm 50/50 on the background material. I really like the detailed "Description" section; I think it adds a lot to the material other than "+this" and "+that". The "History" section, though, probably should be moved to a campaign setting page, because it's very specific to that campaign. It's not really something I'd fret about, though.
