A forge, or smithy, is a coal-burning hearth used by a blacksmith as the primary instrument of his trade. Before weaponsmithing and armoursmithing became specialised trade skills, the practice of forging useful items was a skill distinct to denizen blacksmiths and adventurers of the knightly classes. Each major city has at least one public forge, and forges may be found in certain villages as well. Organisational Houses may purchase a forge to be used by House members for a substantial price.
