Campaign Information[edit]

Playing a Nordheim Smith[edit]

Combat: A Nordheim Smith is not trained for combat, though he may work in a forge all day he does not have the skills for melee combat so he relies upon his magic aptitude to defend his self.

Advancement: Nordheim Smith's are lacking in physical combat, however they make up for it with their spell casting, you can either cover their weakness by picking a strong offensive or defensive class or increase their strength by picking a strong spell casting class.

Resources: Nordheim Smiths are usually employed to the palace and to the military for their superb crafting skills
