Pulp Materials

Over the summer I've been reading some old Doc Savage books, where I found references to duralumin and pliofilm. These were both materials I had never heard of before, which intrigued me. I assembled this table in case I ever run a pulp-style game and need to name some new wonder-material, without having to submit to realism.

Fantastic Pulp Materials

A half-dozen samples:
  • hypergel
  • maloplast
  • cellusol
  • formicast
  • lumisil
  • lumilite
Rarely, you may get the trade-name of an actual product (it is cobbled together from those), as I have no mechanism to prevent that.
