Recipes of the forge is a book from the original campaign detailing what combinations of items can be used by Marrok to create new magical items. A similar book – called simply "Book" – is available for Barun Silverblade. (The ingredient combinations are the same, but the items created are more powerful.) Each recipe can be used only once by each player character (per chapter). Each book is freely given by its smith if the player inquires about the recipes.

Recipes Edit

"Marrok of the Hammer's catalog of weapon and armor modifications.

Here be the list of whats I need and whats you, the customer, get. I'll be wanting a goodly number of coins as well, depending on what I wants to charge you. Puts the items in the forge and talks to me, Marrok, with your gold in your pocket."

"Barun's catalog of weapon and armor modifications.

Toss the magical weapon and the component I require to improve it onto my forge and I'll give it a whack with my hammer.
You'll need to pay me first, of course."

Armor Edit

Axes Edit

Maces and the like Edit

Blades both Sharp and True Edit

Rarer Fare Edit

Notes Edit

  • Although a component specified in the recipe book is referred to as "adamantite", the true name of the item is adamantine.
  • To qualify as "magical", the base item requires at least one item property that is an enhancement bonus (including those versus race or alignment group), attack bonus (including those versus race, specific alignment, or alignment group), or armor class bonus. Temporary item properties do count (such as those produced by magic weapon and magic vestment), although this is likely unintentional as temporary item properties did not exist when the original campaign was released.
  • "Total AC" includes both the base and bonus armor class of the armor.

Locations Edit

The campaign provides only limited quantities of the special items used by these recipes. (In contrast, magical armor and weapons are available in unlimited quantities from stores, and they are often generated as random loot.) The following table lists the locations where each reagent can be found.
