Grey Stone

A mysterious material with the texture and feel of a smooth stone. This is a misleading observation as it is more durable than one would expect. Due to it's composition, it is extremely difficult to work with as a crafting component, however there are rare examples of its use in powerful relics. It is also a rare component as it is impossible to find on the prime material plane. Few know that it originates from Ashfall, a dead realm of barren shadows.

History & Usage


A couple of legendary artifacts are thought to have been crafted with this material. It is said that the last king of Black Iron was assassinated by an arrow headed with stone.

Among the cultists' possessions was a small idol to an unidentified entity. The idol was lost before it could be destroyed.
