Are there any D&D 4.0 mechanics to upgrade weapons?

One of my PCs has a weapon that is part of his story. As his character grows in power he is bound to "outgrow" it. How can I offer a way to upgrade this particular weapon without having to replace it.

I'm thinking in the direction of enchantment/socketing etc.

  • \$\begingroup\$ rpg.stackexchange.com/q/4766/810 is the question that I wrote that people think is a duplicate. I'm not sure why Stack Excange's close-as-duplicate mechanism doesn't seem to require a pointer to the duplicated and imbed it in the "closed" statement. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Nov 30, 2010 at 13:23

    \$\begingroup\$ Bizare. Stackoverflow does have that mechanic I think. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Nov 30, 2010 at 13:27
  • \$\begingroup\$ I think it has a mechanic that gives option to provide a pointer, but may not mandate it - particularly in this case, where the close was executed by a moderator. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @F. Randal Farmer Actually it does, require a pointer (even for mods), and it adds a link to that question to the top of the question as Possible Duplicate. It is confusing because it's at the top, not the bottom, with Closed. \$\endgroup\$
