Return to the Keep on the Borderlands
Rafe, the Smith
A large man whose arms bulge with corded muscles, lives and works here, aided sometimes by his sons. His forge is on the ground level; He, his pregnant wife Dara, his widowed mother mrs.Smith and his 2 sons, Jankin and Kemble, all live in the upper story. Rafe can make horseshoes, nails and bits with ease, but weaponsmithing and armor-forging are beyond him; the best he can do is make arrowheads or mend a hole in a shield by welding or bolting a patch over it.
He is willing to undertake special commissions, anything from forging a holy symbol to dipping a blade in melted silver, provided that the price is right and the task does not interfere with his normal business. Rafe is generally considered one of the leaders of the community and is currently a member of the community council; his good opinion carries great weight in the Keep.
