Hammer and anvil, bellows and furnace, the Skill of Forge is the bailiwick of the blacksmith. From the tiny and the intricate to the strong and the deadly, the Skill of Forge encompasses much that can one day be profitable. Those who explore the depths of the Forge Skill will find gainful employment nearly anywhere; should they choose so, they may even find employment in their own homes and houses, for the proper blacksmith can make a comfortable living by creating objects on their own and selling them. During times of war and peace, those who understand Forge will find themselves in high demand. While this is a physically demanding Skill, those who have low mental abilities will find their work suffering accordingly.

Armorer

Armory comes in the forms of shields, mail, and head protection, but for smiths armory comes in the form of dedication. To craft the metal that soldiers and workers entrust their livelihoods to is a fine occupation indeed. Keep your wits about you as you step into the shoes of the smiths. For those shoes may be a little too hot for those unprepared.

Courage

Bravery under fire, standing up for what is right, taking one for the team...all these things have been labeled as courageous at one time or another. Contrary to popular belief, courage is something that can be learned and improved upon with time and effort. Those who take the time to increase their Courage will be rewarded physically, spiritually, and mentally; those who fail to work at improving their Courage will (at one time or another) learn to ignore the taunts of "coward" which will follow them to the end of their days.

Weaponsmith

The creation of weapons is a delicate matter and is something that should not be taken up lightly. Only those with strength in their arms and fire in their hearts should plan on creating weapons for others to use, for if one is not willing to do a 'job' themselves, one shouldn't send out others to do it for them.
