Qadir by the Bihyal
Brothers of the Lathe and Forge
The Brothers of the Lathe and Forge, also known as the Artisan’s Brotherhood, is the guild that governs the creation and sale of goods via skilled labor in Qadir. They argue with the Golden Brotherhood to set low tariffs on raw materials imported from other territories, and stop the Great Houses from ruining artisans out of spite. If you are not a member of the guild, you are at the whims of these other bodies when it comes to acquiring a loan, acquiring raw materials or refusing patronage. Despite it’s formal name, the guild governs all skilled labor craftsmen including: carpenters, sculptors, armorers, gunsmiths and weaponsmiths, (as opposed to simple blacksmiths only), tailors, cobblers, jewelers etc.
