Advantages / Disadvantages of being a blacksmith?

I saw that we have a shortage of blacksmiths and I am thinking of becoming one but I have a few questions..

1.Does the legion need blacksmiths (Yes I know admins can just poof it in but for roleplay and filling in a job for someone)

2.Does the town need one (Yes I know it might not be needed but for making bricks and ECT. for the town sense blacksmiths are like factories)

3.If they do need one do the blacksmiths get paid?

4.Advantages/disadvantages?

5.Would this be a wise carer?

6.Would the blacksmiths in the army get free materials to make armor and weapons?

1. The Legio has a full-time blacksmith, called the Custus Armorum. The legio might not need armor, but I've looked for a blacksmith many a time for my weapons and guard armor.

2. The town DESPERATELY needs one, and honestly you could make good money now, as there's NO blacksmiths in town currently. But you better have good business sense.

3. As a blacksmith, you have 2 options: either be a family blacksmith OR be a private blacksmith. Either you'll live in a domus with your patron and provide all of his needs free of charge (and maybe sell a little extra on the side) OR you'll own a shop (you need curio, and money) and have to pay rent on it, BUT you'll charge whatever you want for everything you do/sell.

4. See 3.

5. If you can pull it off, DEFINITELY. If you can't, then someone else will outdo you.

6. Yes, they do. But that's Legio only. If you join the legio and are trained to become an armorum, then you'll do exactly that. After you retire (which can't happen for a loooong time), then you can open your own private business.

Legion have no need currently and the town I believe only use leather armour but for making them tools there's certainly a market for it. I like adam's suggestion of supplying the vigiles and maybe the private guards. (Only issue with supply vigiles is the ability to create chain armour, I am unsure if the crafting is up for it)

nope you do not need Curio to rent a shop, all you need is to rent a stall and set up shop as you always have done, Find a supplier of Material and find buyers :sick: easy as Tehfood
