This is somewhat suggestions-thread material in nature, but since I don't have an actual explicit suggestion at the moment, I thought it would be better to post this in the discussion section. So lately I have been wondering about all this unshaped lead I've been accumulating through my efforts to smelt galena for silver. AFAIK lead cannot be used for tool-making (for good reason -- it's not only toxic but a rather soft metal, too), nor are there any alloys that use lead. Does anyone know if there are planned uses for lead ingots later on? Or does anyone have any good ideas for how it could be used? Maybe there are some interesting ones that had not occurred to me. I did look on wikipedia to see if there were any significant alloys of lead, and there are a few: Solder and Terne (Terne is used for inhibiting steel corrosion) are both alloys of lead and tin, and then there's an alloy of lead and copper with the cool name of "Molybdochalkos". Haven't been able to find any reputable or informative sources on that one though, but apparently Greek Alchemists knew about it? *shrug* Of those alloys I'd guess that Terne is probably the closest thing to applicable in TFC, but even then there's no realistic need to protect any of our steel tools from rust in that manner. For example, a steel sword does not get coated with terne in real life, it's just polished and oiled when needed. Anyway, that's all I have to go on for now. What are your all's thoughts?
