  • Is there a difference between Stygian steel and soulsteel?

    Just that.

    IRC, Stygian steel was the First Edition name for soulsteel. I think First Edition also made mention of "death ores" implying that, originally, there were multiple sources of materials besides souls. Don't quote me on that.

      Stygian steel is soul steel alloyed with shavings from the Labyrinth.

      Cheers!

        Dammit! nothing is correct. I was thinking of darksteel vs Stygian steel. Carry on.

          Thanks, Nothing. Is there a mechanical difference besides Stygian steel causing aggravated damage?

            Offhand I can't think of one. I think when it is surgically installed (mentioned in Doomslayers) it reduces Permanent Corpus for the duration, but that might just be because of the surgery itself.

              I believe Stygian Steel is also stronger then Soulsteel. I consider it Soulsteel + what with it resonating with Oblivion cast offs.


              It is a time for great deeds!

                It's definitely stated to be stronger, I just don't know if that comes up mechanically.

                  Having scoured the books before for this question, I can tell you there isn't a whole lot printed about it. So, if you want it to have more benefits, go for it.
