Valdorian Age - Rising Power on the Frontier
Ringing Smithy has become the favorite blacksmith of Duke Lothar Coeur‘s men; they bring their weapons and armor to him for repairs. Though Berly Ring prefers to hammer nails, horseshoes and other objects not intended for killing a man, he’s loathe to turn away the coin. A widower who has little use for talk, Berly lets his thirteen year old son Rekly deal with customers. Rekly fawns over the Valdorians when they come into the shop and never stops asking them if they’ll make him a Duke’s man when he’s an adult. The Valdorians are tactful and proper enough to tell him it’s his father’s decision to make and a son should always honor his father and his wishes.
