Magnet chains appear as common, non-combat, ten foot long chains, with round metal weights on both ends. They are always made of iron. Both metal spheres on the chains ends look as normal iron; however, they have been specially treated as to seek and attract other metal items, such as the metallic weapons and armour of opponents.
Ambricus invented the magnet chain when he discovered a strange metal whose properties allowed it to attract other kinds of metal (see new special materials on page 29). By fashioning a chain made of this metal, he invented an altogether new kind of weapon one with the ability to seek its opponent almost by itself. Due to their extreme rarity and high cost, magnet chains remain an Adroit Arms exclusive.
The strange properties of magnet chains give them a +1 circumstance bonus on all attack rolls made against enemies carrying any kind of metal. These bonuses apply to normal attack rolls, opposed attack rolls made to disarm an opponent and trip attacks made with the magnet chain. Furthermore, when attacking opponents clad in medium metal armour, the circumstance bonus is increased to +2. When attacking opponents clad in heavy metal armour, the circumstance bonus becomes +3. A character wielding metal armour suffers a 2 penalty on all attack rolls made with a magnet chain.
A magnet chain can be wielded as a double weapon, although the wielder suffers all penalties associated by fighting with two weapons, exactly as if he was fighting with a one-handed weapon and a light weapon.
A magnet chain counts as a reach weapon, unless it is being used as a double weapon, in which case it can only be used against adjacent foes. While not being used as a double weapon, a magnet chain can be used to attack opponents within ten feet and also adjacent ones. A magnet chain allows the wielder to make trip attacks; if the character is tripped during his own trip attempt, he can drop the magnet chain to avoid being tripped. Finally, a magnet chain gives the wielder a +2 circumstance bonus on checks made to disarm an opponent, including checks to avoid being disarmed.
Notes: A magnet chain is
simply a normal chain made of magnetiron (see new special materials
on page 29).
