Armourers

Armoured fighters need armour!

Join Us!

These days a blacksmith is charged with making gates and fence-handles. A far cry from when your every day life hung in the balance - based on whether your village smith had worked your helm well enough to keep you alive!

With combat armour virtually redundant, the importance of the smithy and forge has steadily dwindled - and the vast knowledge of this fine art has become almost obsolete.

Couple this with the advance of technology and generic "one size fits all" mass produced low quality replicas - we ask you to heed the call and revitalize this proud and ancient art with the sweat of your brow, and the force of your hammer.
