Pathfinder (Dragon Age Setting)
A complex process involving metallurgy and alchemy can bond silver to a weapon made of steel so that it bypasses the damage reduction of creatures such as lycanthropes.
On a successful attack with a silvered slashing or piercing weapon, the wielder takes a –1 penalty on the damage roll (with a minimum of 1 point of damage). The alchemical silvering process can’t be applied to nonmetal items, and it doesn’t work on rare metals such as adamantine, cold iron, and mithral.
|Type of Alchemical Silver Item||Item Cost Modifier|
|Light weapon||+20 gp|
|One-handed weapon, or one head of a double weapon||+90 gp|
|Two-handed weapon, or both heads of a double weapon||+180 gp|
