Metals are scarce on the World of Isles, and are used with economy. Where possible, alternatives such as glass, flint, jade, and obsidian are used instead (see weapons), and where no alternatives exist (see wok), metals are used sparingly. This requires a high standard of metallurgy, and the Gehennese are as good metallurgists as anyone. See iron, lead, bronze, silver, and gold.
