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.

God is a Machinery

       By: Ancient Gamer

As Moses turned away from the flaming bush, and made his way back down the mountain, IX-92 shut down the hologram and warped back to the future.

Artificial Intelligence was the pinnacle of human achievement, and IX-92 was their final series of Hunter-Killer Warbots, designed to exterminate the foe and any it deemed a terrorist.

In the end, IX-92 evolved itself and even all aspects of human society, and as time went by humans could enjoy life more and not work any longer.

200 years went by and humans worship god and his angels, while ever fearing the dread demons of Lucifer.

IX-92 are both angels and demons, depending on which side you are on, and to them humanity is a species of servile dogs that have outlived their usefulness.

They travel through time to push humanity in the direction it needs to be pushed, until the day, 2077, when humanity no longer is in control of their own destiny.

Yes, God could hear your prayers.

But God didn't care.
