    Proposal: Silversheen (Special Material)

    I'm proposing the inclusion of Silversheen (described here) as a special material.

    In part because I've already rolled for a weapon with it in the Mystic Pearl (got ahead of myself there), but I chose it essentially because it stands out as an alchemical equivalent to stainless-steel.

    Well, that was simple enough.

    Yeah, every once in a while, the wheels turn smoothly around here.

    Still one more vote before it's official, though. But you're on your way.

    Not terribly keen on it but no real reason to vote against it. So, Yeees.

    @GlassEye what are your misgivings on it? I understand that it's got approval already, but I'd still like to know what about it in particular you didn't like.

    It's a rather nebulous dislike but analyzing it it seems mostly rooted in that there is already an item named Silversheen. I suppose I would prefer if they had named it 'Argentum' or some such. Also, it overshadows alchemical silver. Alchemical silver is inexpensive but because of the damage penalty as soon as someone gets enough cash they'll trade up for Silversheen. Which isn't a bad thing; I guess I just wish they had coordinated their item creation a bit better. As it stands there is Silversheen (material), Silversheen (item), Alchemical silver, and weapon blanch (silver). All of which are minor variations of the same thing.
