A highly valuable substance. It is mostly used only for practical purposes such as protective clothing and webbing, and only the wealthiest can afford to use it extensively and frivolously.
- Ethersilk is used in the etheric webbing that is erected around airships, allowing them to move.
- It is also used in a tunic like a bulletproof vest as part of a Guardsman's or Aeronaut's gear. Etheric Weapons will have little effect on a piece of clothing with high-quality ethersilk in the lining.
Silkweaver Nest Edit
- Grimm's coat that he got from Efferus Effrenus Ferus when treated for a poisonous bite is apparently lined with high quality ethersilk.
- Airships Parts, Gear and Technology
- Etheric webbing
- Ventilation Tunnels
- House Nine-Claws
- Habble Landing
The Predator put up its Etheric webbing made of ethersilk. The crew of the Predator wore tunics lined with ethersilk—they were old, the silk harvested a generation ago. They would only be effective against an indirect blast from a moderate range. They were the best Grimm was able to find for his men—better than no armor. The coat lined with high-quality ethersilk that Grimm got from Efferus Effrenus Ferus likely saved his life in the skirmish at the Lancaster Vattery. Major Renaldo Espira threatens his men with: "I will send every one of you up the ropes."
The House Nine-Claws escorted Bridget, Rowl and Folly to a passageway in the Ventilation Tunnels of Habble Landing that had a hole in the roof with "ropes" of ethersilk hanging out of it. With the help of Folly and her Lumin crystals using the ethersilk to make light, Bridget discovers a silkweaver nest above the hole where the ropes of ethersilk were hanging. It was filled with a treasure of ethersilk. And and enormous bower for the silkweaver matriarch. The implications of the threat to Spire Albion were enormous.
