It Started With a Kidnapped Pig...
Blacksmith of Red Larch
Eldras Tantur is a black skinned man from Turmish who settled in Red Larch with his wife and children 15 years ago. He is tall but not overly huge of muscle, being more sinewy.
Eldras Tantur has been Red Larch’s blacksmith for a decade and a half and has taken only a handful of days off work in all that time. Eldras and his children—a strapping son and two strong daughters— are skilled smiths who can make almost anything that requires no specialized alloys or treatments. They can temper swords and reinforce armor, and they often repair tools and weapons.
The Tanturs rarely emerge from their smithy. They work all day long every day filling endless orders for hasps, hinges, locks, and chains, plus hardware for wagons such as cotter pins, bolt rings, wheel rims, and wheel hubs.
Eldras is a plain-dealing sort who knows almost nothing of the current mood and troubles in Red Larch, since he’s so rarely away from his forge.
