Velakan starsteel

Occasionally, pieces of the stars that Phelim flung to the heavens will find their way back to Elanthia. When such a piece lands in the desert of Velaka, the bright white sands melt and mix with the material of the fallen star, creating a silvery-white metal with a glossy sheen, almost like obsidian. When held in the right light however, lighter and darker striations can be observed interleaving at perpendicular angles beneath its glassy surface.

Velakan starsteel (or starsteel) is light, strong, and holds a keen edge. It is somewhat hard and not very flexible. It would be quite suitable for light, sturdy weapons, such as a short sword or a spear head. It could also be used for armor, but most likely just for reinforcing vital areas, or even just in a decorative fashion. Otherwise, starsteel could be used for most applications where regular steel would be used.

This material is required to be provided for alterations.

Other Information

The identity of the first person to discover starsteel is lost to history, but it was likely a Moon Mage, who observed an object fall ablaze to the desert and decided to investigate.

Velakan starsteel is sometimes associated with Phelim, due to its origin from the stars.
