Legionary blacksmiths are blacksmiths working for Caesar's Legion in The Fort in 2281.


Legionary blacksmiths are in charge of maintaining and forging the Legion's weapons.


One of them is located near some tents, just after passing the Drawbridge when entering the Fort. He is sharpening a machete.

The other blacksmith is located just up bit further down the camp, behind Caesar's tent going down a slope to the left side, near the weather monitoring station. He is hammering down on some small steel beams.

There are many blacksmiths in Legate Lanius' camp.

He can be missing any body part from his entire torso to his feet, even without his Legion armor should you remove it. [verified]
