A ritual to enhance weapons and other items with limited magic
"Kendra is not in the Circle of Heroes for nothing... You know how important this spellforging of hers makes our lives better. If it wasn't for her, we wouldn't have half of our comforts."
One of the greatest discoveries in the current era, Spellforging not only changed warfare, exploration, and adventuring, but it also began a series of innovations in quality of life and other technologies. Through a ritual, a spellsmith can bind basic magic to gems and metallic objects, often weapons and armor but other things as well. Unlike Runeforging, the effects of spellforging are temporary, having limited uses before it needs to be recharged.
Access & AvailabilityWhile not especially rare, spellforging is rather expensive due to the effort required for the ritual and the rather uncommon availability of people who know how to perform it. Depending on the nature of the item and the magical effect, spellforged objects often cost from twice as much, to ten times the normal price.
ComplexitySpellforging is the most basic magical technology, with only the raw use of magic being less complex. It is a basic element in runeforging, which can create many more complex and lasting effects.
Today, the permanent enchantment that Kendra discovered is known to be achieved through the use of Runes and is called "Runeforging" instead.
