Changes In The Land
The blacksmith is a duo: a Gnome, Finn and a Dwarf, Bjorn. The is a bit more superstitious and the gnome tends to be more scientific and analytical, being the voice of reason. The gnome tends to be more eccentric though, where the dwarf is more grounded. The gnome is more of an alchemist (early chemist) which leads to the dwarf being a good “metaller” due to their synergy.
At some point, perhaps the gnome has done some research and needs a particular ore and might go wit the group to go prospecting for ore which will give them a chance to build up the town.
