Rydlin Steel

By:

The fineset weapons in the Known World are made of Rydlin Steel.

The Steel of the Rydlin region is a stronger and harder steel than normally available. The steel has a slight blue sheen to it. This comes from additional materials the locals add to their steel recipe and the minerals found with the local iron. The steel will have a slight Damascene pattern, which is often enhanced by the "proper" techniques the smiths of this region use.

Items made of it are more durable than normal and will hold a hard edge (and harder to sharpen). Assign bonuses as appropriate for your system. Rydlin smith produced superior materials as well, so they get expert, if not master craft bonuses.

Science Note: Molybdenum and Vanadium added to steel produces a blueing of the metal and great strength. It is used by custom knife makers today to create exceptional blades.

The PCs have travelled long and far. As nightfall approaches a mighty storm is unleashed. Luckily there is a lush wood nearby the path.
A good shelter for the rage of the unnamed weather gods it seams at first. As the PCs enter under the roof of this dense wood, they are welcomed by only a few drops wich is allowed trough the thick forest crown. A fire is offcourse required to warm the weary bones of the travellers. As one of the party is set to the task of collecting firewood the others settle down at a suitable location. But alas, they did not know the perils of this forest. But it seems clear to the rest of the party that something ill is at work as the woodcutters scream echo from afar.
