The Forge is one of the Great Houses of Kaladire. This is the crafters guild and it is by far the largest of the guilds both in membership and physical building size. Taking a large four story residence overlooking the sea front the forge never stops. It is so large that training classes, or crafting work must be going on at all hours in some part of the building just in order to cater to its massive membership. It reaps huge amounts of profit and its officers are men of high mathematical and economic understanding as well as being master craftsmen. It is common for dwarves to be seen here and they are honoured as the greatest in the trade. Indeed the Master of the Forge has been a dwarf eight times in the history of the House.
Yet despite the money and massive size of the House it is the house that carries the least prestige. It has only had two Grand Viziers in its centuries of history. This pains many of the higher or more long term members as many see their skills adn knowledge as higher and more valuble than those of the other houses. After all they build where as some only destroy. Still other members of the Forge have an inferiority complex about it, seeing their house as hardly one of the ‘Great Houses’ at all.
