Properties[edit | edit source]
An organic material crystalline in structure but shell-like in substance, adra can be found growing up through the ground in veins in many parts of Eora. Easy to carve and manipulate, it is a favorite of jewelers as a semiprecious stone, and is often cut more intricately and beautifully than other gems.
Engwithans were masters of cultivating and shaping adra. In fact, their cities used it as a core element of their architecture, mixing it with layered stone, while craftsmen used it for a staggering amount of purposes, including armor smithing, transferring souls to animats, decoration, and more. Abydon, the god of smithing created by the Engwithans, also leverage the properties of adra in creating the White Forge. Its soul-channeling properties were later leveraged by the Pargrunen dwarves in the creation of Durgan steel.
In modern times, Adra remains a popular choice among craftsmen for its malleability and among animancy practicioners for its soul-related properties. Glanfathans even use adra bordered with copper as a unique form of currency, called adra eniach.
