Shadows of Erasc
Magic Items in Erasc
Magic items are much less common in Erasc than in a classic D&D setting. There are some items that specific races know how to create very well, though the craft of such items is kept a very close secret and the items are disbursed only to those seen as great assets to those who have them. Magic items cannot generally be bought on the common market. Also, owning magic weapons is likely to attract attention both wanted and unwanted.
Magic weapons can only be created using masterwork items which must be bough for 1.5x market value and can only be made using quintessence, the substance that is created when an item is disenchanted. Quintessence can also be used to enhance a magic weapon, increasing its bonus for an amount of quintessence valued at the price difference between the new enhancement value and the old one. In this way, weapons often grow with their owners, and the swords of the greatest heroes are said to have grown into objects that can think, speak and even act for themselves.
