Dueling Anvils Smithy Shoppe
To ensure you receive your downloads, please order them separately from any physical items.
You’ve been walking through town for a bit now and as you do, you hear the constant clanking of metal-on-metal echoing through the narrow cobblestone streets. Following the echoing rhythm, you turn a corner and a new sound greets you, the sound of metal skipping across metal as a sign creaks it’s welcome to you. The building is rough cut stone bricks of varying shades of greys, blues, and deep reds. The roof has a sharp pitch and smoke bellows from the stack above. The sign creaks again and you see it has two anvils, side by side with hammers striking their surface and the words “Dueling Anvils” burned into the wood. The front door is wide open and the moment you step into the interior’s view, you know why as a wave of oppressive heat hits you. Sparks fly as a burly man brings a heavy maul down on the metal he’s working, barely seconds after he lifts it, another hammer is brought down upon it by the woman standing across him. They continue this wordless work for a few more minutes before, as if on cue, they both stop hammering and the man places the metal into the source of the heat; a large forge.

I needed an encounter to add to a city, sending this blacksmithing couple worked like a charm. Will be using them more in the future, for sure. So great to have a fully fleshed out npc at your fingertips.
Excellent session prep aid!
I've been following Deven for a few years now since being introduced to her great mapmaking skills through Critical Role. Although I have had little need for her products specifically, I have enjoyed supporting her creativity through subscription and participating in the amazing Discord community that has grown around her.
I have been playing various RPGs with my kids since we went into isolation back in 2020, and found a love for worldbuilding to give my kids more opportunities for their imaginations to play out and am always on the lookout for new content to add in, which is where the Dueling Anvils Smithy Shoppe comes in. This is not your average (insert random shop) creation. Not only do you get a well thought out shop that can be plopped down in almost any fantasy campaign, you get a full character bio and background info for the two owners, options for how they live day-to-day, dialog suggestions for what could be happening when your party walks through the door... I could go on and on, but you would be better off just buying this and falling in love with it for yourself.
The different maps allow for multiple different feels to the same space.
