Transmutation

Transmutation is the ultimate expression of the alchemical art: the ability to transform one material into another. With the paste created by this formula, an alchemist can temporarily change the base metals of a weapon into one of the following extraordinary types: silver, goblin iron, or elven steel. It may not transmute a weapon to any other material.

The weapon has the limitations and meets any requirements a weapon of that material would normally have as if it had always been that material.

With the proper rituals and components, it may be possible to create a permanent transmutation effect.

Silver Weapon Rules

Weapons made from silver make the "silver" call with attacks. Silver melee weapons may also make "blunt silver" attacks. You must always use the "silver" call with your attacks unless an attack replaces the entire call such as a "strike" call made from a mageblade attack. Specifically this means you can't choose to make a normal attack with a silver weapon.

Elven steel and silver weapons may never have blade poisons put on them. If a blade poison is applied to one of these weapons it is rendered inert and useless immediately.

Goblin iron can never be included in the construction of a weapon with elven steel or silver.

Goblin Iron Weapon Rules

Items made out of goblin iron are inherently poisonous. When attacking with a weapon made of Goblin Iron the weapon deals "poison" damage. A goblin iron melee weapon may also make "blunt poison" attacks. You must always use the "poison" call with your attacks unless an attack replaces the entire call such as a "strike" call made from a mageblade attack. Specifically this means you can't choose to make a normal attack with a goblin iron weapon.

Some blade poisons require that they can only be applied to goblin iron weapons. These poisons get no special increased duration benefit when applied to such a weapon. All other blade poisons when applied to a goblin iron weapon, last for 20 minutes or until the weapon has successfully made two hits.

Elven Steel Weapon Rules

Elven steel weapons count as being both magical and silver for any purpose where those traits would be beneficial. Attacks with elven steel weapons make the "elven steel" call. A elven steel melee weapon may also make "blunt elven steel" attacks. You must always use the "elven steel" call with your attacks unless an attack replaces the entire call such as a "strike" call made from a mageblade attack. Specifically this means you can't choose to make a "normal", "silver", or "magic" attack with a elven steel weapon.

Elven steel and silver weapons may never have blade poisons put on them. If a blade poison is applied to one of these weapons it is rendered inert and useless immediately.
