Medieval fantasy settings are always going on about their metallurgy, sometimes even using metals that only exist in fiction. Well the Arcane Realm tales may most range from the steam to contemporary era, but I don’t see why I can have my own version. Here are the significant metals and alloys of the Arcane Realm.
Lodestone/Thunderbolt Iron- magnetite naturally magnetized from lighting strikes. Properties
Disorient faye and jinn perception by interfering with their magnetoception.
Mithril- Light silvery metal Properties
Lightweight metal yet strength relative to titanium
Resistant to magical energy discharges
pretty good magical focus for rapiers, bucklers, parrying weapons, arrows, bows, wands, staves, armor, etc.
Orichalcum- a golden brown brass like alloy of copper, mithril
Can act as a room temperature semiconductor with a steady mana supply
Adamantium- an ore Properties
Hardest non-brittle metal
Stronger than diamond
denser than most metals
more durable, but only to make up for its increased density so it doesn’t break itself
strong resistance to heat
cracks slowly repair themselves to an extent, “flowing” so maces, buildings, axes, tower shields, bullets, etc. >
Meteoric/Space Iron- Meteor iron with iridium to make it harder and durable.
Cold Iron- Iron alloy cold forged with traces of magic infused gemstones Properties
Suck out magoi from many beings with innate magic with a burning/stinging sensation
Can touch etheric matter and creatures like spirits
