Against All Odds
Alchemical Blades appear as ordinary longswords or other edged weapons such as daggers. They are an almost lost secret of mortal alchemists and are created by using “rare earths” and the “projected will” of a Master Alchemist. The alchemist Warren Harley of Hamtramck made such blades for Edward Deschain and James Smith. Both were used to destroy the Touchstone. Eddie also used his to lop off the head of Alamandric Von Stein.
The property of these blades is that they exist somewhere on the border of the physical and metaphysical realms almost as if existing between reality and imagination, in effect bridging the possible and the impossible into blades of legendary sharpness. In game terms, Alchemical Blades do aggravated damage and can sometimes their strange cross-planar nature may have other uses such as destroying other cross-planar artifacts.
