View Full Version : Shapesand and Heavy Objects

Here's a question, what happens if you make a ridiculously heavy item, such as a steel tower shield out of shapesand?

It would require 12lb of sand to make, but would normally weigh 100lbs, thoughts?

Um...... it would weigh less?
Maybe apply less penalties I guess.

So essentially a few jugs of shapesand weighing about 40lbs (few hundred gold) could replace several thousand gold worth of items and make them a fraction of the weight without issue?

I guess, unless hardness is an issue. But could it be used to make a normal full plate at a fraction of the cost and weigh? Sure.
I mean, you can make a towershield out of wood at a fraction of the price and weigh, so I don't see why different rules should apply to Shapesand. (actually I'm not certain if shapesand is worth more or less per volume than steel)
