Thank you!

>> Nicely done! <<

Yay, I'm glad you like it!

>> In addition to the story I mentioned above, it reminds me of a scene in The Deed of Paksennarion, with a similar bit about the foolishness of attacking a Smith in his Forge. <<

*laugh* I'd forgotten about that scene until you mentioned it. Yes, Paksennarion was one of the foundational influences for this series, according to the original prompters, and it's a favorite of mine too.

In this case, the slant is even steeper, because this forge is a paladin's holy place. Two paladins on open ground may be evenly matched. But in one paladin's own shrine -- which this forge is for Einon -- the interloper is essentially fighting uphill staring at the sun.
