Pandemonic Silver

Mined from thin veins of ore on the plane of Pandemonium, pandemonic silver has all the properties of alchemical silver (see page 284 of the Dungeon Master’s Guide). In addition, a thin, unearthly scream issues forth from a bladed weapon made of pandemonic silver whenever it’s unsheathed in at least a light breeze. This scream is a sonic, mind-affecting compulsion that is a fear effect. Other than the wielder, those within 30 feet who hear the scream must succeed on a Will save or cower for 1d4 rounds. The DC of the Will save depends on the strength of the wind, as indicated on the table below.

Wind Force Save DC
Light (0–10 mph) 10
Moderate (11–20 mph) 13
Strong (21–30 mph) 16
Severe (31–50 mph) 19
Windstorm (51–74 mph) 22
Hurricane (75–154 mph) 25
Tornado (175–300 mph) 28

Pandemonic silver can be used to coat the striking surface of any slashing or piercing weapon made of steel. The cost of the weapon increases as shown below.

Type of Pandemonic Silver Item Item Cost Modifier
Light slashing or piercing weapon +9,000 gp
One-handed slashing or piercing weapon, or one head of a slashing or piercing double weapon +11,000 gp
Two-handed slashing or piercing weapon, or both heads of a slashing or piercing double weapon +13,000 gp

Eberron Adaptation

Pandemonic silver would likely be found on the plane of Kythri, the Churning Chaos, although finding and mining a vein of it woud be difficult and unreliable at best, the native Slaad occasionally favor weapons made with Pandemonic Silver. Another option would be the plane of Syrania, the Azure Sky, home of the Angels and Solars. Angels themselves may wield weapons coated with the silver when protecting their heavenly domains.
