Silksteel is a material woven by arachnids in the Ulwhyr Forest, it is thin and light but possesses a tensile strength that makes it an ideal material for crafting padded armor.[1]


The frontier township of Marshpoint, located beyond the Brackenmarsh in the Ulwhyr Forest, operates several silksteel plantations. The collection of the material is overseen by a lords of House Junica and House Dezraed, two feuding Azyrite families.[1a]


Silksteel's properties make it an ideal material for creating padded armor. Such armor is prized among the Freeguilds of Excelsis, as the coastal city lacks access to large deposits of steel. This padded armor has such impressive tensile strength that it can hinder blade strikes and arrows as effectively as steel plate.[1a]
