This black-brown paste is produced by Kaortri. It hardens into a rigid substance in an hour. Kaortri use this resin to shield themselves from the effects of the material plane, and to create their weapons and armor. Resin equipment has a hardness of 9, and 20 hit points per inch of thickness. If the resin isn’t alchemicaly treated, it crumbles into an ash-like substance in 3 weeks.
A rare mineral that is mined only islands of matter floating in the Astral Plane. It is very similar to iron but has the remarkable feature of being fully effective against incorporeal attacks, as though it were made of force. Armor crafted from astral driftmetal retains its full armor bonus to Armor Class against incorporeal attacks. Astral driftmetal is not malleable enough to be worked into chainmail or scale mail; only a breastplate, shield, or any form of heavy armor can be made from it. A suit of driftmetal armor weighs the same as a suit of armor made of steel. Other statistics such as maximum Dexterity bonus, armor check penalty, and arcane spell failure chance are unchanged. Astral driftmetal has a hardness of 12 and 30 hit points per inch of thickness.
