The Obsidian Crown
Obsidian steel will hold an edge indefinitely and cannot be broken unless it is returned to fires by which it was made. While obsidian steel does not contain obsidian; the charcoal black metal earned its name from its wavy, obsidian like, appearance. Rumors circulate regarding the process to create obsidian steel, from human sacrifice and strange rituals to dragon fire. In reality, the creation process is a closely held secret known only Thraess artisans.
