The vile material capable of slaying immortals
Mechanical BenefitsHP/Inch: 30 Hardness: 5 Special: Enenranite only provides benefits when fashioned into weapons. It has no effect on armor.
For Weapons: Weapons made of Enenranite are cracked and smoky, as if containing an everburning source of choking fire and ash that softly wisps out from the edges of the weapon. Weapons made of Enenranite are, for the most part, normal and mundane in most all aspects save one - they are legendarily lethal to immortal creatures and those with healing powers. A weapon made of Enenranite ignores ALL DR(Even Untyped). When a weapon made of Enenranite strikes and deals damage to a creature with Regeneration(Even Regeneration flat) or fast healing, all such abilities that creature has are deactivated for 24 hours. Against immortal creatures, these weapons instead give them a glimpse of mortality and render them mortal for 24 hours, forcing them to succeed on a Fortitude saving throw(DC 30) or be staggered for 1d4 + 1 rounds after the initial strike(even if they are normally immune to staggering). During these 24 hours they are vulnerable to aging effects as normal, and demigods, mythic creatures, and partially divine creatures become fully harmable by mundane weaponry - effectively turning off all forms of DR those creatures have for the duration of the effect.
PriceEnenranite is so rare it is not available for common purchase. It must be sought out in the wild or in the possession of those who would have it - typically Othrakan smiths or elders.
Enenranite has an odd look in its natural form, and looks bubbly and misshapen, often forming long stretching tendrils or spires out of sand dunes or beaches. It tends to have a shiny gloss to it, and resembles pale sand in color.
Physical & Chemical Properties
Enenranite is warm to the touch, vibrates softly, and emits smoke in small wisps almost constantly - as if something within the weapon or material yearns to get free by burning and shaking it apart. It takes extreme heats to smelt, and only the most skilled of smiths can hope to beat Enenranite into proper shape - all others are likely to damage themselves or their forge in the process. This process is typically well-guarded by elder Othrakan smiths and not given lightly to outsiders.
Geology & Geography
For the most part, Enenranite resembles normal fulgurite - it is found in much the same places and has a striking resemblance to it, discernable only through its smoky texture and fiery warmth.
Origin & Source
Enenranite's origins are not well documented, and are kept a secret to all but the most trusted of the Othrakan smiths and leaders - it forms only from lightning strikes during storms born from the horn of an extremely powerful Othraka infused with the power of the legendary Enenra - the demon of choking flame. When this lightning strikes sand or gravel, it forms massive bubbling spires of smoking Enenranite. However, this process usually leads to the death of the Othraka who formed it - or at the least, the loss of their Enenra infusion - as if the demon of choking flame itself takes its silent vengeance on any who create it.
Life & Expiration
Unless subject to outside forces, Enenranite will never deteriorate or expire, as it knows no rust nor decay - it has sat untouched for centuries at times, towering spires of smoking material on beaches or sand dunes across the world.
History & Usage
No one knows how exactly Enenranite came into being - but most assume it is a byproduct of the Enenra, the legendary demon of choking flame in Othraka mythos who travels the smoky winds of the night, stealing breath from children in the cradle for its nefarious ends. As for how Enenranite specifically was born, none know for sure - some say the first Othraka possessed by the Enenra accidentally created it while raging madly in the sandy dunes, creating swirling hurricanes of ash and flame out of rage and surrow - leaving spires of Enenranite in his wake. Others say they are markers left by the Enenra itself, warning totems designed to steer others clear of a given area...though the truth will likely never be known.
The common use of Enenranite is an obvious one - it is used to hunt immortals and demigods. It is said to be the only thing capable of killing creatures claimed to be immortal, either in age or healing power - and countless have sought it out over the years to do just that.
Cultural Significance and Usage
To the Othraka, Enenranite is a cultural failure and a disgrace upon their people - a hideous weapon born of their failure, and the Enenra - a demon of their own mythos. They see its creation as their mistake, and seek to hide it away and keep it away from the outside world - they are aware of the terrible powers it commands, and seek only to hoard it away and break it apart...though rumors abound that they yearn to one day collect enough Enenranite to forge powerful bars to permanently chain the legendary Enenra itself, and stop its blight on their species for good.
The forging process of Enenranite is unknown, and not documented - it is spread through word of mouth only among the most ancient and venerable Othrakan smiths.
It is said that even wielding or holding a weapon made of Enenranite can be lethal to others in small doses, and for extended periods of time is said to be almost invariably lethal - one will not outright die, but will slowly fall to the corruption of the Enenra in body and spirit...until one is completely subsumed by the Enenra's unholy power.
Trade & Market
It is not traded or sold - it is so rare that it cannot enter common trade, and the Othraka seek to guard it and keep it safe and hidden where possible.
Any method of storage is fine, so long as it is not physically touched - but even carrying it on one's person has small risks over time, so extradimensional spaces are best to store it.
