The Black Pot

The first of a few posts about the locations and citizens of Blythe.

The Black Pot is the only professional blacksmith in town, though a few of the farmers on the outskirts make their own tools. The Black Pot is owned by Kalman and his wife, Deia. They have two sons (13, 8), and one daughter (10). His oldest son works in the shop with his father, along with a couple of other apprentices from town. Kalman is a good blacksmith, but he not a terribly good armorer or weaponsmith, other than perhaps knives and pitchforks.  He specializes in common household items (pots, pans), farm tools (ploughs), and basic animal gear. Most of the fishermen and farmers pay for their goods and repairs with bartered goods, most frequently food. Kalman is not wealthy, but his family stays well fed. He does sell common items to Sayton who owns the General Store, but Sayton is quite savvy, and Kalman doesn’t get that great deal of a profit from those sales. Kalman is well liked by the community and is a good person to know if you are a stranger in town. He is a member of the town guard. He is tall, almost 6’ in height, muscular. Though with age and drinking, he is clearly not all muscle.
