Title: a book titled 'Sympathetic Magic In Weaponsmithing'
Bestowing weapons with special properties is an ancient art. Druids carve
runes into humble branches to unlock magical properties, while mages can
weave force fields or elemental energies into blades to bestow powerful
There are, however, ways of constructing weapons that can align sympathetic
magical forces latent in the base materials. These formulae are not unlike
the art of brewing potions - combining the right metal with the right wood
and insetting it with the right gemstone can achieve effects no ordinary
weapon can have. Only mastercrafted weapon are of sufficient quality to
channel the sympathetic magic. These can range from bane properties against
certain magical races to a weapon with natural toxins in its blade.
There are many different weapons of this sort, some of them truly ancient
and their powers kept secret. Others may be discovered with diligence and
research. Some techniques were taught to mortals by demons, angels, fairies
and even dragons!
