Sorcery has always been a defining aspect of fantasy. It has been shown to perform magnificent deeds such as turning lead into gold. I had a fascinating idea for my fantasy book that involves a similar feat. What if there was a method to turn any metal or rock into a ore that could be stronger, lighter, and more durable than any other metal? Such a metal would probably be as valuable as gold if it could produce high quality armor and weapons. I will explore this further as my writing progresses.
