Rarity guide

Level 1 Materials at this level are commonly available and may be found nearly anywhere that humans store ore or use tools made of metal with little to no difficulty. While no metals at this level are listed on this page previously, it contains metals like bronze, tin, iron, and alloys made thereof.

Level 2 Materials at this level are more rare, but still readily available for use by the civilized races. Small towns may not have any, but any larger settlements will be able to produce items of this type without much fuss or extra cost.

Level 3 Materials at this level are rare indeed and may not be found at all in small towns and heroes may need to venture to full-fledged cities to locate something of this type and even then, they may not find an item they’re looking for in this sort of material even if the settlement has other items cast in it.

Level 4 Materials at this level are rarely seen, even by traders and merchants. Finding raw metal of this type is even scarcer than items made from it and any hero searching for a weapon or armor made of this material will have an incredibly difficult time in doing so, even in a metropolis.

Level 5 Materials at this level border on mythical. Most haven’t heard of the material and even those that have may be skeptical of its authenticity and fewer still will have seen any items of this make. Ore and ingots of this sort are nigh impossible to find and finding even a minimal amount may be an epic quest in and of itself.
