Hello. My question pertains to the 'Shop' within the Anvil and Hammer.
My character Randal is capable of crafting and for the longest time has been crafting weapons for people at the Anvil and Hammer store in Isinold, 'within' the shop. However, there is no actual 'shop', and I just do so infront of the 'shop door' and pretend that the little space there is just the 'shop' itself. Before I craft however, I warn the people I am RPing with that I cannot go into the actual shop within the store, on account of no keys.
DMs who were there at the time I think saw me say this, and understand. I thank you all for that =) My question is, is there an actual key to that shop, or is there just one not available yet? If there is a key to it then there is no need to tell me. I wouldn't want any possible RP and in-game information to be given away that isn't meant to be =)

It's probably a nice idea if player who want to craft items find a shop to "rent" the space in a RP sense for the sake of crafting, say a suit of armor. It doesn't require a DM present but it makes good RP to head into a forge and pay the smith a small token "to use" his forge instead of crafting a suit of armor from adamantite in the privacy of your rented room in an inn or, god forbid, in the middle of a dungeon with a dozen dead corpses littered across the floor.

Hmm, the coin needed to craft the material can be used to rent the forge + using its accessories. That IS a good idea guys. I always just used the coin for the accessories, but the renting makes more sense =).
And yeah, crafting armor or shields or even weapons anywhere else other than a place with a forge would be silly. Now what I do though, is, say someone is interested in a new shield design. What I will do is take the shield out and begin "drawing" designs over the shield until the person finds one they like. Then I'll take the shield to the forge and begin crafting its new design there. It seems to be the best way, and it's something I've recently done too.
Though I feel compelled to ask, is there a more efficient way? =) Im always looking for ways to improve on that RP
