The Manaverse Periodic Table is an extension to the "standard" Periodic Table. It catalogues chemical elements that exist beyond the realm of physics, with atoms partially or completely sustained by anomalous or metaphysical means, commonly in the form of stray or exotic metaparticles (such as magitrons or aetherons) assuming or replacing the function of atomic particles. As a result, these elements often possess metaphysical properties that are independent from their chemical properties, but still behave like ordinary matter in most circumstances.



Adamantium (Chemical Symbol: Ad) is a very lightweight, extremely stress-resistant non-brittle transition metal with a lustrous, lead-like natural color generally found in medium to large deposits inside mountains. As with mythril, adamantium is very good at retaining Mana, though it is very hard to extract and work with as a pure metal, requiring the use of dissolution mining and alloying to make most effective use of. It is because of this that most would associate adamantium with its bronze alloy's iconic green tinge, even though pure adamantium is not green. An extremely versatile metal, adamantium and its alloys have a wide variety of uses, from weapons and armor (both magically-augmented and non-magically-augmented) to building to robotics.


Laconia (Chemical Symbol: Lc) is a magically-inert transition metal. In its purest form, it indiscriminately rejects nearly all Magic Functions directly or indirectly applied to it, and as such, it is often classified as a "metaphysically-noble" substance. It is a highly-valuable asset for magitech constructs and weaponry, as it can be used to conduct Mana or a Spell through a system with absolutely no loss of efficiency, or to create Laconia-alloyed weaponry with high resistance to Magic. The color of Laconia, as well as its degree of "nobleness" towards Magic, depends on the degree of refinement it has been subject to, with clarity increasing proportionally to its quality, or "grade". On an unrefined state, Laconia is an ashen metal with little reflectiveness, while Laconia of the highest grade possesses a uniquely white and lustrous color.

Laconia is very rare in the known Manaverse, but is known to occur prominently in Phantasia. Other terrestrial worlds often contain negligible amounts of the element, if not entirely lacking it.


Mythril (Chemical Symbol: My) is a lightweight but strong transition metal. Mythril is naturally silver with a blue tint or gleam, though it can easily be dyed into vibrant and metallic colors, most commonly seen with the oily pigments secreted by the roots of dragonscale. Mythril has a particularly high Mana retention rate, capable of assimilating it with comparatively minimal loss, thus making it a very efficient and preferred metal to enchant, or "charge" and utilize as an external Mana Pool. It should be noted however that this retention is not necessarily synonymous to resistance, as Mythril does not avoid the physical or metaphysical consequences of Manalistic Magic or Mana-based techniques.

Mythril is malleable and ductile, but still sufficiently hard to be purposed as high-quality armor, particularly when alloyed. Other properties include resistance to superficial corrosion (tarnishing), a melting point of roughly 1700°C, and conductibility on par with, but slightly less, than copper.

It is primarily found in ore veins, and although a moderately rare element in terms of mining, it notably occurs naturally in the scales of Euthoran dragons, as well as some species of Malomorphs in Phantasia.


Orichalcum (Chemical Symbol: Or) is a rather heavy, exceptionally hard transition metal. Orichalcum occurs in a variety of colors ranging from bronze- to gold-like, although chemically pure Orichalcum is known to possess a distinct amber hue that is vaguely reminiscent of gold. When tarnished, it acquires a dark green hue. It has a very rigid structural integrity, with low malleability and ductility contributing to its hardness and tensile strength, although it does not possess a particularly high toughness against fracture: as a result, Orichalcum is fairly brittle in the same manner diamond is. Due to this, it is uncommon for Orichalcum to worked manually—instead, it is considerably more popular as a material for Alchemy.

Orichalcum is especially heat-resistant, with a melting point of roughly 2480°C, and is known to possess an inherent Elemental Resistance against the Fire Element. It is moderately rare, and often considered to be the "sister metal" to Mythril, as it is frequently found in the same ore veins as Mythril is. As with Mythril, it occurs naturally in the scales of some creatures, particularly the Euthoran Dragon species of Firedrakes and Pyrespines, in sufficient concentrations to allow these creatures to withstand the heat of lava.

It is possible to simulate Orichalcum with certain alloys of bronze, however these imitations lack the Fire-Elemental resistance (as well as the high melting point) that true Orichalcum does.


Vibranium (Chemical Symbol: Vi) is [...]


Zeraphium (Chemical Symbol: Ze) is a hypermetal. It is a highly-condensed substance due to its compressed atomic structure, giving it an exceptionally high density. [...]



Tephralite (Chemical Symbol: Tp) is a metalloid that naturally occurs on some sea creatures and is most commonly found on Euthora. It cuts through water without resistance as if it was air, but decays quickly and seems to burn when out of the water. It is naturally a deep, glassy blue, but turns bright orange and dark brown when it begins to decay.

Though the most reliable sources of Tephralite are creatures that produce it naturally, it can sometimes be found forming in coral-like growths in oceanic trenches.



Gyakunite (Chemical Symbol: Gy) is [...]


Saezerite (Chemical Symbol: Sz) is [...]
