    Anyone have a small shop house with a soulforge? I have an 8x10 and the soulforge takes up almost 2/3 of the floor. I like having my blacksmith stuff close by so I can have my all my crafting stuff next to each other. Also how many tiles does a soulforge take up?

    Put it on the roof- it works on all floors below.

    I actually have 2 soulforges on Siege, the silver dyed one at my main house and this chopped down one on my shop roof. Forge and anvil to the left dyed with dye made from bright orange plants, storage is in baskets in the right hand corner. Baskets are excellent for storage in smaller houses.

    Great looking house Petra Fyde. I'll have to put it on the roof. Things are so darn ugly. I guess its a good thing my house isn't any smaller or I wouldnt be able to have one.

    If you like I can help you break one up on your roof so that only the anvil remains. That would give you more room to do what you want, the anvil only takes up a 1x2 tile area.

    The area the soulforge takes up is a 4x4 block, the two anvils are the X's:

    OOOO
    OOOX
    OOOX
    OXXO

    So you could have either the south or east facing one remaining, but they can't be placed against the north or west walls, tho you could have one of them in the middle of the roof. Probably along the south or east edge would work best.

    No, once it's broken it can never be redeeded.

    Lucky me I just placed a 10x10 in the same spot my 8x10 was. After I get it all done Sarsmi I might call upon your services to show me how to brake up the thing.
