Tanith Ilara is a benevolent AdventurerTanith Ilara is a benevolent Adventurer
[Location] Ilara Forgeworks

 



"Serale! Welcome to Ilara Forgeworks!"

In Demios' mercantile district, a small and unassuming building sat in plain view of many passers-by. Made of black and white stone, this building was home to Demios' resident blacksmith, Tanith Ilara. Two windows afforded a gaze into the store, wherein rows upon rows of glistening blades and suits of armour rested, waiting for potential customers to browse the wares. Inside, the sounds of hammering upon anvils as Tanith's apprentices made their way through their daily tasks could be heard, the air always warm by the heat of the forges.

Sitting inside one of the windows next to an armour mannequin, sat an engraved metal plate, which housed a sign:

Specialising in custom arms and armour! Available materials include iron and steel (from standard steel to fine, elven and dwarven). We also stock standard weapons for your everyday needs. Enquire within!

Early Summer, XX

After some time searching and asking for the Blacksmith Tanith's shop, Lightem was finally able to found it. He entered in the shop, hoping to find the owner.

He was dressed with his black shirt, vest and gloves. He was using his Dark blue cloak and his black hat.

"Serale, my name is Massani, Lightem. I am searching for the owner, Tanith?" - He waited for her, and if was her the one who was in the balcony, Lightem would smile.

"Ah, great. I heard about you in the midlands, Ma'am. I am here to ask you something. I want you to make me two twin swords." - He said, and he began to explain the sword.

"I want two bastard swords. With two edges, elven steel and with the cross guard like this" - He showed her a paper with a drawing of the cross guard. - "I want both swords with a pommel like this" - he showed a new drawing

"How many brightenings will you need to do the job? I am in a hurry and I know how much time is needed to make a sword." - Then a small pause. - "Ah, I almost forgot. I'll pay you 800 crowns for the job."

Now this was an interesting request. Tani had never seen anything like it - a double-edged jagged katana. Forged out of Elven steel, too, which would certainly be an interesting way to handle things. She knew the processes involved and she was going to need time, just to get this right. However, she had confidence. She had the knowledge of the Paedia and the confidence in her skills to do it.

"I can certainly do this for you. I'm going to say... hmm. Three brightenings should be enough," the blacksmith said, considering the weapons. "I'll need some more precise dimensions from you, but that'll be minutiae for later. How would you like to handle the payment?"

A valid question. She wasn't as fussy as most store-owners, but she needed some insurance, right?

Lightem smiled, a satisfaction smile. - "Perfect. I want the blade with about 95 cm of blade, and 15 cm of "fist" plus pommel. As the payment I have the crowns right here and I want to pay now." - He said, and he delivered 800 Golden Crowns to Tanith. - "Do you need any other information? Oh, that''s right, the blade shape. I want it like this"Without that space in the blade, you know? After the cross guard - Another drawing. - "If you don't have anything else to ask, I should leave!"

Eight hundred crowns. What a hefty fee. That was a lot of expenses paid already! Tani was rather proud of this one commission, but it was going to have to be absolutely perfect if she wanted to create a pair of swords that were both functional and appealing. This was going to be a challenge, a real one, where her skills would be tested beyond measure. Such was the difficulty of being the premier blacksmith in town...

"I'll have this done for you in three brightenings. Come back early and they should be here. Thank you for your custom!" The money was placed away and the drawings kept by the smith so she could use them as reference for her casting, deciding to get to work sooner rather than later. There was a lot to be done!

OOCContinued in new thread!

Goran Ironfist is unknown and forgotten
First cycle of summer, Era XX

Goran walked into the shop and looked around. There were some nicely-made weapons here, but that was not the dwarf's purpose this brightening. No, he was here to learn how to make weapons, to learn the craft his people made famous. Seeing a young elven woman, he decided to inquire.

"Serale, lass," he began. "I'm lookin' fer th' blacksmith 'round here. Tanith Ilara, that's th' one. I'm hopin' t' learn t' make weapons."

Tani was indeed there, ready to go. She was in a good mood, having already started work - and then the bombshell. Her forge was new, she needed help, and this was perfect.

"Serale. You're speaking to Tanith right now! Welcome to my forge. If you're interested, I'm glad to help. Do you have any previous experience?"

Goran was taken aback to say the least. His prospective teacher was an ELF? This had to be some divine prank, right? Right?? Ah well, it could be worse. Even if he hated to admit it, the elves were skilled craftsmen themselves. And she certainly knew more about the forge than he did.

"I can't say I got any experience under me belt," he replied. "But I always enjoyed watchin' me father at work when I was young. I never imagined I'd be learnin' th' forge from an elf, but tha's how th' world works t'would seem. If yer willin' t' teach a dwarf, I'm willin' t' learn from an elf."

oocI will make a new thread once the intro/setup is done here.

Tani smiled warmly and put her hand on Goran's shoulder. "I can definitely teach you from the start. I'm oka with that. Besides, working with dwarves is great. Both our peoples have contributed greatly to our fine art. So why not share?"

She considered a few things first. "Do you have lodgings available here?"

"Who knows," he answered with a bit of a smirk, "maybe someday we'll find ourselves workin' t'gether, or competin' for a prize. We both got plenty o' livin' t' do." For now, however, there were more current matters to attend to.

"I got me house here in th' city," Goran replied. "An' if yer in need of help in th' shop, I'm certainly able."

Tani nodded. "Perfect. I won't worry about it then. Let me run you through the basics - I'll have two apprentices here in Demios. Yourself and another ef named Zysha. My store opens as the sun rises and two hours after dusk. Feel free to pop in and out between those hours but I expect you to put at least a solid eight candlemarks of work a day in. I also have orders to fill for Duck's Weapon Store and I expect you to help me work on those as part of your learning and to give you some direct experience. I'll give you sixty crowns a cycle to cover your living costs, plus a little extra. How does that sound?"

"That sounds good to me. I'll likely be here in the mornin'. When do I start?" He would never show it, especially around an elf, but inside, Goran was jumping for joy. He would finally be learning the craft of his race, and of his family.

A smile crossed her face as she knew she had an apprentice who was willing to really get down to it. These things were difficult and Tani was going to have to really work hard to show this dwarf she knew her stuff. After all, this was her place of work. She expected no trouble, but she did expect a good work ethic.

"Tomorrow, if you like!" she said brightly. "Welcome aboard. I think you'll like it here."

"I'm glad t' be learnin'. I'll be here t'morrow early. An' me name's Goran by th' way, Goran Ironfist. Anything else I need t' know before t'mororw?" If there was anything else, Goran would deal with it, if not, then he would head out until the following brightening.
