Talk:Metal Worker (5e Background)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

A person who crafts weapons is called a weapon smith. Metal worker is a generic term encompassing all metal craft, regardless of subject/function or material. I should know- I am a metal worker. Smiths forge metal by hand. A blacksmith works ferrous metals (iron and steel and their alloys) and a whitesmith works non-ferrous metals (typically tin, but technically other metals such as gold, silver, brass and bronze would be included). Over time, whitesmith came to refer to people who work tin plate almost exclusively, though this is a post-industrial term. --Kydo (talk) 21:40, 23 February 2016 (MST)

I am going to hammer out some of the finer details, and polish this up to a superior finish. --Kydo (talk) 00:45, 17 September 2016 (MDT)

I see what you did there. Marasmusine (talk) 09:07, 17 September 2016 (MDT)

  • Support. This is a well made background, making the character come alive with supple descriptions and possibilities. --Green Dragon (talk) 00:02, 9 January 2020 (MST)
  • Support. I agree with Green Dragon, this is a really well made background. This background covers a lot of the different types of metal workers and does an excellent job weaving their narratives. It goes enough in depth about metal working while still being easily understood. In summary, the background simply oozes with personality and flavor. Because of this, this background receives my support for becoming a qa.--Blobby383b (talk) 15:38, 1 November 2021 (MDT)
  • Support. It's pretty flavorful and well thought out (though the feature can sound a bit like the metal version of stonecunning or something). The personality tables are well written and have good roleplay potential.--Yanied (talk) 14:39, 5 November 2021 (MDT)
