    is it made of iron?
    I have a good idea for darkfriends!
    Таке the Horn of Valere, fill it with the molten iron , then made from it cuendillar. No more problems with heroes!

    Or!
    Dentistry. Even prosthetics . Streams of fire to make a small hole in the jaw , and then inserted a metal shtifr , then healing, then metal dental crown , and made from metall cuendillar. Right in the mouth. Again healing. Bingo! Or you can make a removable crown , to be able to fix it, if there are mistakes. In any case, it's convenient and reliable.

    Unless in some future age they discover a way to destroy cuendillar. After all, we have no such material in our age.

    Plastic! Maybe! We don't know how long it takes to decompose...

    I know you can damage it and that it's not the right color, but maybe it's devolved?

    I was about to say plastic. :lol But it's the stuff that NEVER decomposes in a landfill, so who knows what sort of artifacts they'll be finding of us in the next age!

    :lol It's like they find a Happy Meal toy and think it's a profound religious artifact.

    One of my favorite books:

    [​IMG]

    It is the year 4022; all of the ancient country of Usa has been buried under many feet of detritus from a catastrophe that occurred back in 1985. Imagine, then, the excitement that Howard Carson, an amateur archeologist at best, experienced when in crossing the perimeter of an abandoned excavation site he felt the ground give way beneath him and found himself at the bottom of a shaft, which, judging from the DO NOT DISTURB sign hanging from an archaic doorknob, was clearly the entrance to a still-sealed burial chamber. Carson's incredible discoveries, including the remains of two bodies, one of then on a ceremonial bed facing an altar that appeared to be a means of communicating with the Gods and the other lying in a porcelain sarcophagus in the Inner Chamber, permitted him to piece together the whole fabric of that extraordinary civilization.


    (It's actually a cheap motel; one body is on a bed facing the TV, the other is in the bathtub in the other room... But the whole thing is presented as a scholarly text on the burial customs and funerary rites of the deceased Usans.)

    OH MY GOD. I remember reading that book in elementary school and I have wondered for forever what it was! Thank you! :D
