Iron Rot

About Edit

Iron Rot is an accelerated form of rust. Iron and steel are coated in copper to prevent this. Once iron rot starts in a weapon, it will completely consume it within a few days.[1]

Suseptible Items Edit

Consequences with Weapons Edit

A weapon, Swords in particular, can shatter on the first stroke, or snap when drawn from the scabbard. This would not only get the owner of the sword killed, the likely the men around him as well.[1]
