Malt, Toymaker


When one thinks of a magician they typically conjure up images of fireballs and lightening darting from fingertips to thwart monsters and evil alike. What about the magic that children see? In their toys and the world around them? Where does it come from?

In this world, that question can be answered; Malt. Now in his middle years and seen as an oddity among magic users, he travels in a caravan hauled by his camel, in which his workshop and tools are kept and he spends his time on an evening crafting each unique toy and then imbuing it with the magic of life, animating them with the purpose of bringing happiness and peace to the children of a world that sometimes offers too little of both.

In his advancing years, his mission to see smiles spurs him on. Hoping for a peaceful future.


This is an extract from a story that began life as an RP between my partner and I. I hope to upload more of it in the future, if people would like to read about it.

I'm aware that it is a short entry to the Citadel and as such is listed under the 100 Word Challenge freetext. As I'm slowly getting back into writing, I hope to make longer and more in depth submissions.

One thing you must realise is that there is no such thing as pure iron/steel these days. Iron/steel isn't nearly as strong now as it was in medieval times. However, with that said, iron in early medieval times was so soft you could hack right through a helm with a sword and leave a nice lil mark on the skull (depending on the grade of iron used on the sword and the helm, ofcaurse). After many hundreds of years of fine tuning, however, the only use the sword had was to puncture the plate. That was very difficult, however, since the grade of steel was so hard... only blunt instruments and weighted axes had any use against plate armor in later medieval times. Makes me wonder why rapiers were so popular then and why less people wore plate (Other than it's obsene costs... a nice suit of armor would cost as much as a nice lexus does now... and a kings suit would be as much as a rols royce).
