Lay pewter is an alloy that cannot be smelted directly from ore; it can only be created from bars of metal, at a smelter, using the following recipe:
Lay pewter has a base value of 3, which would make it preferable over its ingredient metals for creating objects of value, since all of its ingredients have a value of only 2. However, with the same ingredients (in a different formula) you get more value from making trifle pewter and using lead as-is (separately). Technically (i.e. "in real life"), lay pewter is trifle pewter that has been cut with lead; it is less valuable, but you get more of it.
Lay pewter is notable for producing bars, furniture and crafts that appear in-game as teal-colored, a color shared only by clear glass.
