Bronze

The most common metal available in the world, Bronze was initially found in its natural form, but such finds are now rare and the metal has to be Smelted from its Ore.


(n.b. Bronze is a metal in its own right, not an alloy of copper)

Properties

Physical & Chemical Properties

Bronze has to be Smelted hot, and may be melted for Casting using easily available temperatures. It may be cold-hammered. The edge on a blade can be created from a Casting by Grinding.
The metal is relatively hard - Bronze blades longer than a short-sword can only be made usable if the metal is magically cast. As a result, this metal is most used for short-swords, spears and arrows.

Bronze is heavily associated with the Earth Rune but is now commonplace.

Bronze is able to take a good polish and is used in the manufacture of mirrors.

Geology & Geography

Bronze is found in shallow mines in the Earth.

Origin & Source

Bronze is a gift of Rhad-Maerl.
