Properties of Alien Metal

Think you know what will happen if you hang around that unearthed tomb?

After releasing the eldritch-fantasy adventure Dead God Excavation, it occurred to me that the world could use a random table for determining the strange properties of alien metal.

So, here it is...

Properties of Alien Metal

1. Stores and concentrates nearby magic.
2. Corrodes ordinary metal that spends longer than an hour near it.
3. Discolors everything that spends several minutes near it - obscenely garish combinations of yellow, orange, teal, and magenta!
4. Emanates an anti-magic field affecting everything nearby.
5. Infects those who spend an hour near it with the "pink puss plague."
6. Those nearby suffer dream-like hallucinations, seeing giant bearded worms inside the walls that whisper of devouring space and time.
7. Affects gravity so that everything feels alternately heavy or weightless.
8. Gives off excessive heat (1-3) or cold (4-6).
9. Plays back previous moments in time, like memory illusions.
10. Resonates dark ambient vibrations causing humanoids to lose hope.
11. Metal becomes incorporeal when interacting with magic.
12. Causes humanoids to age rapidly, draining their life force when near it for more than several minutes.

I hope you enjoyed this. Thanks for reading, commenting, and sharing.

Don't forget to download your copy of Dead God Excavation on your way out! It's as Lovecraftian as a slimy green monolith covered in strange markings, milky eyeballs, and nigrescent gulfs - warm and moist - that seem to go on forever.
