Alia - The Age of Exploration
The Crafters Guild
While goods, arms and armors can be found in every village, Kentraan has a guild dedicated to the craft of crafting. To them, the selection you find in the villages and minor cities is nothing but junk and poorly constructed shams, and the public is well aware of it.
If you want something that is good, solid and lasts, you go to Kentraan and pay the often steep price. Now why would you do this? Because thes expertse craftsmen have organized together of course!
The Kentraanian Crafters Guild represents the elite within crafting. Often working on commision for the nobles, they have honed their craft to perfection. Consisting of blacksmiths, mages, outfitters and so on, the guild covers any and all conceivable needs, all the while protecting the best interests of their crafters.
Through the history of Alia, several unguilded crafters has tried to make a name for themselves, only to have their dreams brutally crushed by the competition driven by the guild. This is well known to the people, and thus, any crafter worth their lot are to be found within this guild.
