Magical Items

  • Coldcrystals: 800 gp base price for one; can hold about 20,000 pages worth of information. Write-once (per page) and read many times. Signature device of the zwallen, but there isn't anything special about theirs, apparently. Coldcrystal is the translation of the dharven name for the device; the zwallen name translates more readily to "book." The zwallen make them out of a hard, durable crystalline substance, but that's not really necessary; you could make them in a thousand ways if you know the right spells. The zwallen just use their material because it will hold up to abuse. Coldcrystals can also be copied if you have a source coldcrystal when you craft a new one.

Alchemical Items

  • Dharven Explosive Powder: 10 gp base price per vial; alchemy DC 18 check to make. If struck with more than 3 hp fire, electrical, or impact damage in a round, will explode or burn rapidly. Explodes with great force. Very loud.
