    Im running an RPG and some of my characters are looking for strong materials to make weapons and armor out of. We have the basics like Copper, Iron, steel, silver, mythril, and adamantium. Is there anything stronger than Adamantium that could be used to make weapons?

    Carbon nanotubes actually have a few problems - they 'squish' out of shape, mostly. There's loads of research being done into super-tough materials, and some promising experiments - but nothing as of yet. It'll take a little while.

    Sounds like you want Fantasy stuff though.

    The funny thing is Damascus steel in the 1300's was super-sharp because it had carbon nanotubes as an accidental result of smelting a particular ore.

    Star material works best. Material taken from asteroids was always meant to be supertough, according to ancient legend.

    Then there's Orichalcum, a legendary copper-gold that may have been based on a real alloy that is now forgotten. It's an analogue to mithril and adamnant in myth.

    Medusium: A sort of metal, no stronger than iron, that transform other kinds of metal into stone upon impact, thus crushing straight through the armour!! I R JEENIOUZ!

    Another one:
    Phonion or Sonicum:
    A metal that on impact with other metals basically makes the target (the metal, ot the wearer) sing, as in ZZZING, like a gong, shaking the wearer and possibly causing some whole-body damage and hearing injuries.

    From MERP's Treasures of Middle Earth:
    Laen - magic glass, must be forged in below freezing temperatures
    Adarcer - White-ish metal harder than steel, but a little more brittle
    Ithildin - The metal that glows under starlight. There was a variant that glows under moonlight and the dwarves knew a method to make it so that it only glows under the same phase it was forged under.

    And invisible, mythical substance with a ridiculous name that no-one believes exists.

    The fabled, gnomish discovered element called "Absentium" (or something).

    It's intangible. Objects pass through it, and it through objects. It cannot be seen, felt, heard, or smelt. Seams are only located in completely sealed caverns under the earth.

    Gnomes persists that weapons and armor forged from this fabled metal would be the strongest ever.

    Heavy Steel: It's made from White Iron (tungsten) that is smelted to form Tungsten Carbide. Traditionally, it's also quenched in some of the wielder's blood to bond the blade...but that's just custom. It will neither bend nor break and is twice as heavy as a normal sword of its size.

    Adamantium means "strongest material".

    Copper, bronze, iron, steel
    Then you get the D&D metals
    alchemical silver & cold iron (not really stronger than steel but good for fighting demons or devils, werewolves or fey creatures)

    Then mythril and adamantium. I always thought these were fantasy titanium and tungsten.

    Rather than going for "stronger" materials, perhaps they should go for more exotic/powerful materials?

    In old Rolemaster, there was a list of many different magical/non-magical materials, each of which gave different levels of bonuses, or different types of bonus. Some were the standards like Mithril (RM was descended from MERP, the original Lord of the Rings RPG), black iron, white iron, and such, but also included were things like Lain (I think it was some kind of crystallized magical wood, but it rated higher than mithril), and Eog. I'll see if I can dig up the book it was in and post the listing.

    There is a type of diamond formed in the vacum of space. It is like diamond but has irregular pattern throughout it's interior thus not giving it the weakness of normal diamonds.(regular patterns create shearing points.) We can create these diamonds in labs and they can take preasures that the core of the earth creates and does not shatter. Only problem is... You can only carve it with diamond, lots of diamond. Also you have to make it from one piece.

    Legendary materials.

    This might look like just iron, but it was taken from the Blood Mines, where a dwarven warparty held off an army of orcs. Their blood ran into the earth, and now iron from there is stronger than adamantium. It's also highly prized by dwarves, so good luck getting some.

    You think this is just wood? This is a fell branch from the World Tree, tended by elves in the heart of the oldest forest on the plane. Don't detect magic on it, you'll be blinded.

    Utterdeep metal, a cache of iron that was on a ship, ship sank, cargo went down, down into the depths and was crushed into a denser form, plus the weird radiations of the Deep changed it somewhat. Obtained from aboleths, who know where to find it...

    There's also various Planar ores you would handwave into being. The light-but-hard metal Foamsteel of the Elemental Plane of Water's denizens, or Void Iron, forged in the choking cinderstorms if the demiplane of Ash.

    And isn't Adamantium an analogue to Uranium... which is one of the hardest metals known to man while also being heavy and black... just like Adamantium....

    If you want something crazier than Adamantium i'd say make it either from the stars or planes, i'm sure celestial/baator could come up with some kind of good/evil magically infused metal....

    Have a list of magical materials from Treasures of Middle Earth.

    Adamant - A gemstone that is harder than diamond or Laen but can be colored like that later and faceted like the former. Only the Elves know the secret of making it, which they jealously guard.

    Laen - It is a crystal that is naturally black or smoky. It's primary feature is that the hotter it gets the harder it gets. It can be reshaped by cooling it colder than cold and sculpting it while soft. It can be cleared or colored by treatments.

    Adarcer - An alloy of iron, gloin (true coal), and titanium. It is extremely strong but somewhat rigid and difficult to work. Blades made from it can cleave iron without dulling.

    Celebur - A weak uranium ore. Also called burning silver. It is required for making mithrarian.

    Cranor - A golden tree resin that once treated and cured is as hard as diamond. It holds static electricity and energy applied to its surface builds as stored electricity, at around 50 volts/strike once it reaches around 1000 volts it discharges if it has not been grounded.

    Eog - An alloy of Mithril, titanium, and several unknown materials. The recipe for it is held by the elven House of Eol who jealously guard it from all. It requires both hot and cold forging techniques. It is tremendously hard, harder than Adarcer and is stronger than ithilnaur. It also acts as a damper to magic. It comes in several colors, it can be made black, white, red, blue, or grey.

    Galvorn - Meteoric Iron

    Ithildin - A soft metal made by the elves for inlays. It is invisible except by the light of the moon, where it shines brilliant silver.

    Ithilnaur - An alloy of mithril and other metals. It is favored by the elves for its silvery gleam. It is very hard and is somewhat flexible perfect for blades.

    Kregora - An extremely ductile metal, so much that it is useless for making weapons. It oxidizes quickly forming a dull yellow patina on the surface. It has utility as a mesh made from it blocks magic. It is often woven into threads of clothes as discreet magical protection.

    Mithrarian - An alloy forged from celebur, mithril, and eog. Its singular property is that it defies the pull of gravity. Enchantments could do the same but are subject to counterspells, mithrarian is not.

    Mithril - True Silver, it never tarnishes and is very strong.

    Ogamur - A dwarven invention that is used for items requiring extreme flexibility or elasticity. Few materials can stretch like this black metal. The dwarves guard their monopoly on this metal jealously.

    Tasarang - The dwarves invented this metal commonly called "Willow Iron." It bends easily and is very springy perfect for making bow, though impractical due to its high cost.

    I'd go for a nice super powerful material, nice enough, but I'd probably make it radioactive too. Maybe Bohrium or Seaborgium or something, basically a material so powerful that the gods themselves cursed it so that no man could conquer the world in his lifetime.

    My group has already fought them and melted them down into their current gear. I wanted to bring in the new Adamant dragon from 4e shimmy it into 3rd and have them melt it down for some gear but never was able.

    well, being that mithril and adamantine/adamantium are already fictitious, orichalcum seems like the next logical step

    that, or some kind of solidified magic

    >Adamant and similar words are used to refer to any especially hard substance, whether composed of diamond, some other gemstone, or some type of metal. Both adamant and diamond derive from the Greek word αδαμας (adamas), meaning "untameable". Adamantite and adamantium (a metallic name derived from the Neo-Latin ending -ium) are also common variants.

    >Adamantine has, throughout ancient history, referred to anything that was made of a very hard material. Virgil describes Tartarus as having a screeching gate protected by columns of solid adamantine (Aeneid book VI). Later, by the Middle Ages, the term came to refer to diamond, as it was the hardest material then known, and remains the hardest non-synthetic material known.

    I once used a homebrew magical metal which was simply called "Living Steel."

    Armor made from this stuff would fit itself to the wearer, and is extra effective against attacks from blunt weapons, as the steel can layer itself and reinforce the spot that's being attacked to soften the blow.
    As a slashing or piercing weapon it can penetrate armor more easily, shaping itself in the blink of an eye to fit through seems and cracks. In game terms it gives you a hit bonus.

    A sword made of Bismuth would be the most awe inspiring and powerful weapon known to man.

    You don't hit people with it, they just roll over and die because they are not worthy to look at it.

    this. give it ome exotic name like "aurora steel" or something.

    Then laugh at the mental image of your party decked out in armor and weapons that look like a 60's tie-dye shop vomited on them. Hard to act all tough and badass when you look like the centerpiece of a Gay Pride parade-float.

    Unknown to most adventurers, bismuth is actually the result of a Prismatic Wall spell being magically forced into a solid crystalline form.

    OP's pic is of a mineral called chalcopyrite. Because of unique chemical properties, it transforms into its multihued appearance when tarnished. Normally its a dull golden color with little natural lustre.

    And considering that, in fiction, evil is often represented by deterioration, tarnish, rust, and other signs of decay, this trait might be used as a form of crude Detect Evil spell.

    "Guys, I think the Dark Master's forces are at work here, my sword can sense the bleak taint of his power..."

    "You mean your sword just turned gay for evil?"

    "...I really wish you'd let that joke die."

    I agree with some of the other posters ITT. Making something Harder than Adamantium is just an unecessary powercreep arms race. The Void Iron and Seafoam were cool ideas, because they were different, not just because Omigosh Hardness level >9000

    It was meant as a joke encounter in my 4E game, which my players through their actions turned it into a plot hook.

    The players found a tiberium spike. The rogue shot a crystal with his crossbow, it exploded, he got tiberium poisoning, and managed to put it into remission. I found it hilarious, and may have him meet the Messiah when they reach the Plane of Gods.

    The Messiah is the elected patron god of the Empire. He may be mildly surprised a non-Brotherhood member survived the Gift. The other gods, like Carl Sagan, Bruce Campbell, or Bahamut, would find it rather curious.

    A sword forged out of the metal shinbone of Raumilthod, Primordial of Stone, shaped in the embers of his own dying heart and quenched in his blood, a weapon of the ancient Dawn War. A dull grey metal, it resounds with the screams of Raumilthod's imprisoned soul rather than the clear ring of steel. It cleaves stone as if it were water.

    Holy shit! Bismuth returns!

    40k has power armor plates made of "Ceramite" and bunkers made of "Plasteel," though the latter likely has plastic, which isn't fantasy.
    Starcraft has "Durasteel" in the Battlecruisers. The ubiquitous "minerals" are a staple of industry for all races, and can be used to make metals and grow metal-hard chitinous skin.
    Magic had "Darksteel" which started the "indestructable" keyword.
