The Pools of Flame and Tears
Incendium is a wonder metal, used for every object or structure in the Pools. It is the strongest metal known, surpassing copper, iron, or steel alloy. Where Flame would quickly melt the other metals, incendium weakens slowly, allowing careful kragon smiths to shape and mold the metal into useful objects or weapons. Incendium is used for everything, from attaching furs together to make clothing, to tables, to boxes, to weapons, to torches, to fishing poles. Incendium picks are vital to the rapid excavation of the stone walls, dulling far slower than steel. It is the primary goal of mining.
