The rules for enchantment are on HW p.232f. The term "spell matrix" isn't in Hero Wars, which may be why you have trouble finding it. (I agree that it sounds "sorcerous", along with nodes and essences...).

You'd need enchant (metal or weapon), plus any weapon-augmenting feat. Then win two Complete Victories in extended contests (one with enchant, one with the feat), plus spend a Hero Point to make it so.

There was a thread about this last August, in which my suggestions for how a "generic" enchanted sword might work can be found, at:

Remember devotees can improvise feats - "it doesn't say I can make enchantments" isn't an excuse for not trying.

And Narrators are *encouraged* to create magic items with specific enhancements, e.g. a sword that automatically gives a +2 augment to close combat, rather than a +12 Truesword Stroke feat that you have to augment with yourself.

Cheers, Nick
