The Blacksmiths of the Shire

The Blacksmiths is a craft-style guild for those who love forging weapons and armours. Their main guildhouse is located in Bree, west of Mithlond in Middle Earth.

Blacksmiths can forge many types of weapons, including polearms, axes, knives, swords, and clubs. They can also forge most types of armours except for shields. Because forging is difficult work, you can expect to spend a lot of time forging the same item over and over before becoming proficient at it. As a Blacksmith you will also get several useful abilities such as finding whetstones for sharping weapons, and inspecting weapons and armours to learn more about them.

Because of their popularity, there are forges spread at several occupational guildhouses. Blacksmiths may at any time use these forges instead of travelling to Bree. They forge using iron bars, leather and wooden poles, which are sold at the forges.

Type: Layman or Craft (can function as either).
Location: Bree, Shire, Middle-Earth.
