The only metalsmith/armoury in the city

0th of Cylus 0

Stronghold of education and learning, this fortress is in one of the coldest areas of Idalos and home to many knowledge seekers in a variety of disciplines. However, unknown to most, below the city are those who suffer for the sake of science. While all are welcome, not everyone will be treated as they expect.

Copper's Forge

Copper's Forge
Image
This is the only forge in Viden (being that it is a relatively peaceful place with little need for weapons of a military nature. Whilst privately owned, is commissioned to do all of the work for the city's Rangers and Mariners as well as any independent partied who wish to equip themselves. Given the location of the city, battles with another nation are highly unlikely. However Rangers and Mariners are required to hunt and fish, and protect the city from sea-or-land-borne predators, therefore much of Copper's productions are spears, crossbows and pikes.

Manned by Copper and his small army of apprentices - all of whom are sent from their training with the military for a period to understand the work that goes into the tools they will one day use, the Forge is not a small one. Two furnaces are separated by rows of workbenches, allowing the apprentices to truly appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into metalsmithing. With all raw materials supplied from the military's budget, much of it goes to waste as the apprentices tinker in the learning process.

Copper Smyth came from a long line of blacksmiths, on his father's side respectively. Growing up around forges for his entire life he decided when he came of age to join the Arm Militum of Ivorian. This was nothing short of the most embarrassing thing he had ever done in his life. Try as he may, he couldn't meet the credentials needed to become even Phaestus and continually flunked out year after year. Disheartened he left Ivorian and started his own forge in Viden, where he was shocked to find there was none. To his great honor the Rangers and Mariners were his biggest customers and gave him grant after grant to to create their weapons and armor.
There are few who know his humble and embarrassing beginnings and any who would dare bring it up risk getting slapped on the back of their head then told to hush their gob. He is gruff and intimidating when he wants to be which is something all of his apprentices respect. For all intents and purposes Copper is a hard ass who runs his smithy like a military establishment. Can you take the heat?
