Back in the day when people asked about Blacksmiths in Yardis, the first name off their lips was Almazan, "he does the best work, since he married that beautiful woman it's been even better." Their hospitality was fabulous, such kinda adorable people. Just head to the trade quarter and look for the sign of the Diamond. In the last 20 years however, somethings have changed, but not the name, nor the sign.
One of Yardis' busiest metal workers has stood for decades as the place to go for repairs, modifications and custom pieces, whether for art or practical use. Hanging above the doorway is a sign, with just a shining diamond on it, opening the door causes a bell to sound, not a high pitched ding-a-ling like most places, but a deeper, heavier clang instead. Inside is a work table, with various sketches and tools, small and intricate items. A long counter with scales, note books and writing implements, hanging on the wall are several pieces of metalwork for sale. To one side is a small table and chairs, a window out to the yard allows customers to view the smith at work if they so wish, without having to endure the heat and temperature of the forge and molten slag, it also serves as a dampener of sound from the constant ringing of steel.
An man steps out from behind the curtain, you can see years of experience in his eyes. Broad shoulders, muscular arms & calloused hands, his kind warm smile welcomes you. "Good Morning, I am Rahim Almazan, what can we do for you today?" he asks.
