Reawakening of the Black Company
Mithirial is a special ore mined for its unique properties. Equipment made out of Mithirial is incredibly light weight but as durable as the strongest steel. For these unique properties it is also extremely valuable.
Equipment made of Mithirial weighs approximately one tenth the weight of an item made from a standard alloy. Warriors that use melee weapons made of Mithirial can be wielded with the character’s Agility instead of Strength, since the weapons are designed for precision rather than power. Melee weapons made of Mithirial also deal one step damage less than a standard weapon of the same design. Further, armor made of Mithirial ignore up to 2 Steps worth of penalties to the characters Agility but provide the same protection. Mithirial equipment typically costs four times the standard market value for all equipment made.
