Hjulthrum's Expanded Metals and Materials


29 New Magical Metals

The idea of a magical world that affects not only the creatures that inhabit it but also the world is a fascinating aspect of many fantasy worlds, and it's a shame that this is represented in such a small way in Dungeons and Dragons with Adamantite, Mithral, and Infernal Iron. Furthermore, because these metals have innate properties they are considered ‘magic items,’ and as such they cannot be made into further magic items or even enchanted as per the rules of fifth edition. This is where this guide seeks to amend this, by adding 29 new magical metals, alloys, and materials from the familiar Adamantite and Mithral, to new metals such as Undersea Thulium and Ilpraecantium!

Drag and Drop Lore!

Not only do each of these materials contain statistics for when the material is used in the creation of a weapon, armor, or shield, but all of the materials contain details regarding their creation process, where they can be found, as well as what they are commonly used for! As such, any and all of these metals, alloys, and materials can be dropped into your world to fit within your setting!

Not Just Magic Items

As hinted at earlier, these new metals and materials are not just magic items, as some of the materials are not necessarily innately magical in nature, and sometimes the alloys or metals just simply have innate properties such as being incredibly durable like Adamantite! As such, some of the equipment from these materials and metals are considered nonmagical for the purposes of enchantments, spells, and other magical effects, so the inner blacksmith and artificer within us all can make more nuanced and complex magical items or enchantments out of exotic and rare materials!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
