This is a nice, though stereotypical alchemical process. I have seen loads and loads of variants on this and even though I dislike many of the names herein (Dracorex steel, tincture of Moly, etc) I do think the attention and detail in this post warrants a 4.5.
What is fabulous about your works is that it is so very THOROUGH. Much of your stuff can be grabbed by a GM and inserted right into his/hers setting. I think many appreciate that. Go to Comment
Very good. The GM can think up of the exact mechanics, but in general the mages get their asses handed to them. Normally in D&D, wizards and sorcerors dominate the battelfields at higher levels, making noble paladins and valorous fighters just meatshields. This can rectify thst. If instead the secret is not of the Alchemists' Guild but an ancient shamanic ritual, then it is just right for my 'Wild West'-barbarians versus the Imperial Magocracy. Go to Comment
A criminal mentioning a Cambor Vacation is saying that he is planning on hiding out for a while. This does not mean said fugitive is actually going to Cambor, though there is a good deal of protection to be found there. Alternately, a Cambor vacation can refer to time spent in a city gaol.

A laughable collection of metal and wooden scraps worked into a suit of ungainly and ugly armor. Named for the volunteer militia of Cambor who use wooden planks for breastplates and will tie metal pieces and such to their bodies as armor. Can and often is applied to anyone who uses a mish-mash of armors, or has armor in poor repair as an insult. Go to Comment
