The Chardalynist: An Artificer Subclass


There is nothing more appealing to an artificer than some new material to explore: testing the metallurgical properties, mixing liquids and recording their reactions, and learning how to use these findings to produce a new and wonderful contraption. The artificers of ancient Netheril made much use of chardlyn, an obsidian-like gemstone, in their spellcasting. The full extent of this knowledge was lost with the empire, and the gemstones primarily became a vessel for storing magic.

When Crenshinibon was believed to have been destroyed in 1366 DR, its powerful necromantic energy suffused the land with corrupting magic, transforming chardalyn into what is also known as black ice. The material is dangerous to handle, capable of corrupting the bearer—but its magical properties are rife for exploitation by an individual with the right tools to handle it.

Infuse the dead with the evil power of the Crystal Shard and create undead vestiges of your foes.

Just one of the powers of black ice, at your finger tips.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
