I want my character to use books as melee weapons. But I'm concerned about overcoming damage reduction.
Is it possible to make a book out of a special material such as cold iron, adamantine, or alchemical silver; or to modify an existing book to add a metal cover, such that it would overcome damage reduction when used as a weapon? How much damage reduction would the various material/book types do? If it helps my characters tend to be non-literal bookworms.naturally they would have a habit of using books as weapons.
