Masterwork weaponry are combat items that are superior to ordinary arms, but are not “magic weapons” in the sense that they can be used to hit monsters that are immune to non-magical arms.


  • Dragon Mail: this set of scale mail, made from the hide of a dragon or similar beast, acts as regular chainmail but is immune to rust monsters 300gp.
  • Rowan Shield: this shield can be sacrificed allowing a missed saving throw to be re-rolled. 300gp.
  • Shining Helmet: this helmet is polished and silvered to a gleaming shine. A medusa fighting someone who is wearing it is subject to her own gaze attack (the wearer still is too). While wearing this helmet it is impossible to hide in sunlit areas. 250gp.
