Improved Masterwork [General][edit]

Improved Masterwork allows high DC Craft checks to improve weapons and armors with benefits greater than a simple +1 to attack or a reduction in armor check penalty. Some of the abilities are near magical, but all are ultimately mundane. Below is a list of possible effects, each added effect adds to the traditional DC 20 to create masterwork weapons or armor.
Prerequisite: Craft 4 ranks.
Benefit: Able to add additional non-magical benefits to weapons upon creation.
Normal: A masterwork weapon only gives +1 to attack, and masterwork armor only gives -1 to armor check penalties.

Unless stated, the benefits of various masterwork qualities do not stack. That is, you can't have two Lightweights for 50% weight reduction, or the like. You can apply multiple different effects, provided you can make the new DC.
