The Blacksmith is a character in The Sims Medieval. The Blacksmith's daily job is to forge various types of equipment that can either be sold to other Sims in the kingdom or passed on to other hero Sims. In the event of producing poor quality weapons or not producing weapons at all the Blacksmith can be put in the stocks. He gets the ore for his forging from ore deposits in the kingdom. The Blacksmith can level up. If he reaches a higher level, he will be able to forge better weapons and armor.
Blacksmiths can also read Manuals of Blacksmithing, which are books that can unlock recipes for creating special, more powerful weapons.
The Blacksmith's house includes a stall set against the outside wall of the building, from where he can actively sell his crafted equipment. Selling items this way involves the same mechanisms and interactions employed by the Merchant (i.e. opening/closing the stall and checking merchandise, as well as the Compliment Taste, Butter Up, Hustle, and Ask to buy social interactions) but without the high margins that a high-level merchant recieves. The difference is quickly made up though: Blacksmiths can create their own stock.
The Blacksmith who uses the stall for active selling will also find a harder time with it compared to the Merchant because of certain routing issues (browsing villagers usually block the single stall's front side when it's time to make a sale), but it's still very rewarding in terms of leveling because the Blacksmith gets the same experience scale: a successful Compliment Taste/Butter Up/Hustle interaction rewards the Blacksmith with 10 to 20XP each, while a successful sale results in 150XP. The browsing villagers can be lured out to the game tables if the blacksmith has one, making it far easier to gain experience (as the patch only allows one purchase per day, a routing issue disables the ability to sell a product and denies the sim experience).
