The Blacksmith is the fourth and final production building made available in the Bronze Age. It is the smallest production building, occupying 4 tiles only and it requires the least amount of population. When the Blacksmith is motivated, its production is doubled. The production is also affected by the town's happiness and by boosts of certain great buildings. The Blacksmith can be plundered if it isn't motivated.


Supplies 8 per square and hour.[1]
