Improved Masterwork [General] Prerequisites: Craft 4 ranks.Benefit: Improved Masterwork allows high DC Craft checks to improve weapons and armors with benefits greater than a simple +1 to attack or a reduction in armor check penalty. Some of the abilities are near magical, but all are ultimately mundane. Below is a list of possible effects, each added effect adds to the traditional DC 20 to create masterwork weapons or armor.

Unless stated, the benefits of various masterwork qualities do not stack. That is, you can't have two Lightweights for 50% weight reduction, or the like. You can apply multiple different effects, provided you can make the new DC. Normal: A masterwork weapon only gives +1 to attack, and masterwork armor only gives -1 to armor check penalties.
