Rolaren is an extremely durable and strong alloy, its forging a skillful blending of mithril with a combination of trace metals that increase its strength and ability to attack and protect. The resulting mixture usually results in weapons or armor of a deep blue-grey to black color, which can hold a dye with some difficulty. Its enchantment is normally equivalent to that of vultite.
The technique is little-known outside the forges where rolaren is made, and very difficult to master. Legends of both the dwarven and giantman cultures say that the first rolaren was forged as a joint effort between the greatest smiths of both their races in ancient times.
