This indestructible shiny, black metal was created on a different plane of existence. Once forged into any shape, the metal is stuck in that position and can never be altered or changed in any way. This property makes it perfect for armor and shields. Any armor or shields forged of Octulem gain a +1 bonus to their base AC bonus and damage reduction (-5/, -10/, -15/). Octulem also retains magic incredibly well. Lessen the DC for enchanting Octulem by 5. Weapons of Octulem however, are not as effective. Octulem absorbs the impact of any blow, making sundering and attacks less effective. All Octulem weapons get a -1 penalty on damage roles and cannot sunder.
