As I mentioned before, dragons would be too goofy, werewolves are closer to oversized dogs, while lizardfolk are now finally part of the standard fantasy races. These creatures are more cool than terrifying anyway, so, I came up with a briliant idea!
However, I'm usnsure of the materials. Bo staffs and clubs shouldn't be a big deal to produce, but what about swords, halberds, pommels, goedendags, and poleaxes?
It's especially worrying since mass-produced homonculi are supposed to be going up against steel weapons, and while their sthick is Zerg Rush tactics, it's worthless if my homonculi can't even scratch an opponent who's only wearing a measly gambeson.
Is there any biogenic (produced by a living organism) material that could hold an edge when formed into a weapon and resist blows from steel weapons?
While I know that our body does have iron in it, I need a material that is (or its components are), well, more present within the human body.
