The Metalworkers' Guild of Caid.

The purpose of the Guild was to promote the Metal Arts in Caid. Having existed unofficially for several years, the Guild was officially founded by Daniel ben Abraham in AS XXXII. At the inception of the Guild at Rørik and Karina's coronation, hand-struck silver coins by Daniel ben Abraham were presented to seated royalty. Other struck coins were thrown to the assembled populace. After Master Daniel ben Abraham stepped down as Guildmaster, the position was held for some time by Robindra of the Isles.

Events most associated with the Guild were its Hammer-Ins, hosted at different times by Master Antonio el Oso, Tristan Keck, Master Damales Redbeard, and Baron Eadwynne of Runedun.
