This forge channels Hellfire through a rent in reality. The flames scream the torments of the Damned and tear at any smith’s sanity while using this forge. The smith must take care not to allow the flames spread, as mundane water or sand will not extinguish them. Imps can emerge from these fires to bring havoc to the world. On some odd occasions, Devouring Fire may emerge.
Items made with the forge gain infernal strength and power. They also gain a taint of pure Evil. The forge can create mythic items when working with suitable materials. The forge can work Adamantine, Mithral and many other legendary materials.
