# Presentation

According to tales, over the years following the Long Walk, scholars from the Dales restored some of the secrets of magic known in Elvhenan and preserved then in a set of writings. These writings came to be called the Halamshiral Scrolls. Taken together, they granted insight into the mysteries of enchanting, the creation of magic items and constructs, the relations and structure of the gods' realms, and even the making of artifacts. However the worship of the old elven gods angered the human Chantry and those scrolls were lost to the troubled times of the Exalted March of the Dales, back when the Andrastian nations joined the Orlesian Empire in battle against the Dalish.
Most of the Halamshiral Scrolls were lost, destroyed or stolen over the following centuries, and the wisdom they contained was slowly forgotten and reduced to scraps of lore. However, in 9:30 Dragon the Warden Commander recovered several of these writings and used their secrets against the Fifth Blight...

You wish for your very own golden looking chainmail with some magical resistance ?
Well ! That's easy. Simply buy some metal from your favorite store and craft that nice gold enamelled chainmail. Then, prepare your enchantment : gather essences, combine them into crystals, and finally imbue a new Spell Resistance property to your new chainmail by consuming those reagents ! And while you're at it, surely you wouldn't refuse being able to customize that armor name...

# Source code
#

The source code is now available on the DANexus project page under
some basic conditions. Basically people are free to use it for any purpose
as long as :
- I'm asked permission beforehand. I won't refuse anyway, but after
one year working on TWF I'd like to be informed of any project
derived from that work.
- Do not add or unlock community models in TWF without requesting
permission from authors first. I always did, and it's only square
to keep on doing that.
- Credit is given. Duh.

The Winter Forge shall not be added to the "Open House" content index.
