GM Dictionary: Metallurgy #21

What better topic to cover in a world of gold coins, silver necklaces, and iron swords than metallurgy!? This month we cover a variety of terms which are used in the processing and consideration of different metals and alloys.


Ingot

These are relatively pure pieces of metal that are made to be more easily used in later processing and more easily stored. Often stamped (imprinted) with some kind of signature of ownership or source.


This is a mini-article series featuring short explanations for words more commonly used in RPGs (or potentially so!) than normal conversation. Each month will hold a different theme and each weekday will have a different word. Note: these are personal, simple breakdowns and not perfect. Please tell me if I am mistaken and I will work to correct it! For anyone looking for a collected work please check out our Patreon. All patrons get a PDF collected copy each month!
