A Weaponsmith trains to gain an iron will and a highly critical eye. Weaponsmiths help identify and create legendary weapons. To this end, the Discipline borrows abilities from both Elementalism and Wizardry. Nearly every community places great value on their Weaponsmiths.

Important Attributes: Perception, Willpower

Karma Ritual: To perform his Karma ritual, the Weaponsmith heats a thin strip of metal in a hot fire or forge. Over the next half hour, he fashions the metal into a blade, arrowhead, or spear-tip, but instead of forging an effective item, he intentionally tempers the metal too soon, making it brittle. The Weaponsmith then shatters the defective piece of metalwork. The ritual ends the instant the item breaks.

Artisan Skills: Rune Carving, Wood Carving

Half-Magic: Weaponsmiths may use half-magic when caring for weapons and armor and to recognize different types of weapons and armor used or worn by different Namegiver races or their creators. They may also make Half-Magic Tests in place of Craftsman Tests when making or repairing forged metal items, such as horse shoes, barrel stays, and the like.

Weaponsmiths gain access to the Craft Armor and Craft Weapon skills via half-magic. From Fifth Circle on, Weaponsmiths can create living armor with this ability.
