Forge Domain

Forge Domain

The gods of the forge are patrons of artisans who
work with metal, from a humble blacksmith who
keeps a village in horseshoes and plow blades to
the mighty elf artisan whose diamond-tipped
arrows of mithral have felled demon lords. The
gods of the forge teach that, with patience and
hard work, even the most intractable metal can
transform from a lump of ore to a beautifully
wrought object. Clerics of these deities quest to
search for objects lost to the forces of darkness,
liberate mines overrun by orcs, and uncover rare
and wondrous materials necessary to create
potent magic items. Followers of these gods take
great pride in their work, and they are willing to
craft and use heavy armor and powerful
weapons to protect them.
