Smith of Ashes is an Imperial Orc Imperial title created following an announcement during the Summer Solstice 383YE by the Imperial Orc Wayleave. The construction was completed shortly before the 383YE Autumn Equinox. The position of Smith of Ashes is a sinecure in Skarsind, requiring minimal responsibility but offering a regular income of crystal mana.


The Smith of Ashes has no particular responsibilities; they simply receive a bounty of mana crystals from the forge known as the Fire at the Foot of the Mountain. If the forge itself were to be threatened in any way, it would be the responsibility of the Smith to deal with those threats - but also to deal with any opportunity to expand the sinecure, or to make any decisions about its operation.


Bounty of Mana

The Smith of Ashes has custodianship of a sinecure and receives an income of 9 crystal mana each season.


The Smith of Ashes is appointed by unanimous decision of the Imperial Orcs senator. If a unanimous decision cannot be reached, the title may be appointed by the Imperial Senate instead.

The title can be held by a Imperial Orc citizen. The Smith has tenure, and serves until they die or step down. They can be revoked by the General Assembly, the Imperial Orc National Assembly, and by the Assembly of the Nine.
