Chanceway's most revered blacksmith
Curmudgeon, impatient, stingy, fussy, constantly complaining and still has a two-month waiting list for new orders. Brander Thyn is the widely considered the best bladesmith in Chanceway. Born a poor commoner, he apprenticed to several of the best smiths in the Cartwrights before opening his own shop directly on Olwen: a massive timber dome held up by stone columns, the wide circular workshop is left open to the streets on three sides. Brander is hard on his apprentices but each one that has made it through is a respected smith. While his fortune is made in smithing blades, he is a fine armorer, while some of his understudies make simpler tools, nails and hinges.
