Gazetteer – 02k02 – Awakened Metal

Awakened metal – Some dwarven smiths can attempt to awaken an object of masterwork quality.  The result is an intelligent weapon with varying powers and power levels.  Usually the weapon is agreeable to being awakened and appreciative of the honor gifted by the smith.  However, sometimes, it is quite the opposite.  In these cases, some dwarven smiths have lost their lives to their own creations.
