Metallurgy

From MassiveCraft Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Metallurgy is a Proficiency costing Ability buying addition to the main Proficiency page. Metallurgy, generally speaking, is the crafting of items or objects with metals and alloys in a forge or smithy. Metallurgy has a Proficiency cost per so called "Pack" in a similar way to how Sorcery has a base cost per Ability. Each Pack represents one of the below Knowledge Packs, which can be bought for 3 Proficiency Points each. There is no upper limit to the amount of Metallurgy Packs that someone can buy, as long as they have the Proficiency points to afford it. When writing these Metallurgy Packs on your Character Application, you should mention them under your Character's Abilities, and declare the total points cost on the sheet under Proficiency Points spending.

No character has access to any Metal except Iron or painted variants in their backstory without the relevant Proficiency. These Metals may ONLY be gained through IC forging roleplay with Metallurgist characters. You are welcome to handwave in jewelry or other small trinkets of IRL Metals, but nothing else.

Metals Table

The following Metals exist in canon Aloria. Many of these Metals are limited to specific Metallurgy packs, so refer to the packs above to see whether your Character can use them. All Metals are generally divided between three categories: Light (meaning less durable but lighter) Medium (meaning average) and Heavy (meaning more durable but heavier). Durability does not affect weapon or armor degradation in Abilities that degrade metals, it is purely for flavor and combat roleplay considerations when fighting others with equal matched skills and weapons. Some exceptions may exist for materials that can only be found in progressions.

Special Permission Metallurgy

One additional function exists for Metallurgy, regarding Registered Metals. There exists a Metallurgy Registry Special Permission on the Forums that allows for the registration of unique metals for a forger that only they can use. The pre-requirements for this Permission is that the user has had a Metallurgist character for over 2 months, that Metallurgy is the main “theme” or “aesthetic” of this character, and that they have invested at least 15 Proficiency Points in Metallurgy. If all these conditions are met, the user may submit an Argumentation-Free Permission Application, including 2 unique metals that only they have access to as Metallurgists. When approved, these Metals will be added to the Registered Metals list. Inactive players will not have their Metals removed from this list to preserve canon materials.

Registered Metals

This list will show all Registered Metals belonging to player Characters from Special Permissions. These Metals never require a pack for the registering person, and can only ever be forged by another person with direct supervision and help from the registering person. Even attempting to reforge the metals results in destruction of the metal.
