Forging Guide: Page Five
Both the head and the handle of a weapon must be polished before
the weapon can be assembled. In order to operate the polisher, a
character must hold the weapon part in their left hand and LEAN
The vise is used to assemble two parts of a weapon or forging-hammer
into a completed and functional item. Successful use of the vise
is dependent upon the character's Crafting skill. The verb used
to start the vise is TURN.
Vises are available within forging workshops, which must be rented
in order to use. When a character's rental time is expired, the
vise will stop working.
To use the vise a character must be in good enough health to operate
it, must be wearing a crafting apron, and must be holding a weapon
handle in one hand and a weapon head in the other. The handle and
head must be finished by the polisher and must be compatible.
A character's level of success at the vise is dependent on their
health, crafting skill, agility and discipline bonuses, their profession,
and a random element. Successfully using the vise will result in
a completed weapon, however, if a failure occurs, the parts will
need to be assembled again. Extraordinary failures will create an
weapon of lower quality, and an extraordinary success will result
in a weapon of higher quality.
