Have you guys ever felt you were in a real life quest of epic proportions? I just had one today it had to do with finding raw material to make a hammer. check this shit out.
>>Work as a welder at a mine
>>mainly do rebuild and crack repair
>>finish a crack on a 994 bracket.
>>No more work for the day til tomorrow (grauzer job)
>>boss lets me clean and organize shit in my area
>>find piece of hexagon metal about 4 inches.
Look at it and think about heating it up and tempering it to make myself a punch to mark my initials into my work with.
>>pull out small brazing tip start setting up.
>>journeyman bro walks by
>>"hey anon what are you doin?"
>>just found this piece of metal gonna turn it into a punch.
>>he picks up the metal and looks at it for a moment before turning it over a few times.
>>he laughs deeply and smiles widely.
>>"that's a fucking blast from the past. Do you know what this is?"
>>"err ya It's hexa stock prolly used for key holes? or gap rod maybe?"
>>shakes head and show me the tiny engraving of RM
>>"The RM stand for Rony Mohan, He used to be a black smith here when we still had a smelter back in the late 90's"

>>Still not understanding the importance of the material.
>>journyman see this.
>>"well every christmas he used to either make a punch or a chipping hammer for the welder. The hammers were incredible. they were light and hard, you could and still can draw them out to reuse them here follow me."
>>Shows me his hammer from this legendary black smith.
>>"but you only have have one piece you need two to make a proper hammer or else you'll just have one side."
>>He lets out a sigh.
>>alrighty i gotta get back to these trailer fenders anon later.
>>set off on epic journy to find this missing ore (hexa mats)
>>check old smelter ruins ( big fucking empty store house looking thing long since cleaned out for environmental reasons.)
>>lockers left behind jackpot?
>>not a fucking thing.
>>random welding tables boxes underneath jack pot?
>>Random scrap bin bunch of rusted to high hell metal
>> err na fuck that i'm not digging through that shit
Back in high school my friend would come over to smoke weed at my house. My mother didn't care, but he was so nervous at the idea that he insisted we find some place where no one would be. Of course we lived in a city and he refused any spot where someone could even possibly see us if they passed by. It was a ridiculous and annoying railroad.

Another time this girl Stephanie, however, asked me to drive her home to some area I'd never been to and that was a kind of long trip, but there was a nice reward at the end.

>>Oh ok then well hey be safe.
>>crisis averted +100 xp. level 2 reached.
Is the BBEG the dumb bitch in the truck?
Does saving catatonic spelunkers count?

I'm a mountain rescue team member in an area filled with caves and tunnels.

Most memorable had to be looking for a girl who got stuck in a vertical shaft face to face with a decomposing corpse of someone who fell in there a few days before. Her fiance left her inside to look for us and then couldn't exactly find the place again - we had to check several places before we found the right one. She spent five hours there, alone. By the time we got her out she was catatonic.

I was mainly because he has been a trainee for 2 years. refuses to work. is the son of the head person over maintenance fuck him. he has no desire to be good at this trade or become a journyman he just wants the paycheck.

eerr i kinda banged his wife. didn't know it apologized hateful ever since

yeah mostly internal.
Having this attitude, even only internally, to everyone at your job sucks shit. As does directly almost starting a fight at your workplace and half-assing a new trainee's job.
Holy shit anon. You aren't just random dude. Your a fucking PC
c'mon, the guy's sharing a story with us about his life. I imagine most of this is made up/exaggerated but it's still interesting as fuck, leave the critique of him as a person to the end at least? :>

This was my day Fa/tg/uys Prolly the best day of the year for me. I was told i'm a valuable member of the team, if i pass this layout test to become a journeyman i'll be the youngest journeyman ever in that shop history. that along side with getting my relic hammer it feels great almost like everything is really starting to fall into place in my life ^^. So i thank you all for your time in reading. I also took pics of my hammer and raw material if anyone is interested. No time stamps though can take a time stamped one tomorrow if anyone is interested. also express interest for pics (be warned they are low quality)

This story, while told as RL vs. Gaming whimsey, is a good example of the potential in a crafting/quest system; to have a player
1. Be tested by their peers
2. Be tested by their adversaries
3. Have their self discipline tested
4. Have a last-minute setback
5. Must show mastery of techniques by using what is taught

Makes better sense than running around collecting ingots to make 1000+ pans and iron daggers. It's a "meaningful grind" as it were. Thanks Anon.
Hell yeah, awesome quest. Show us those pics so that we can appreciate it too.

Pics of everything, please. I want to see everything.

Does it have a name or will relic hammer suffice?
This is really neat OP.

I don't know about others, but I don't know much about metalwork/welding. If you felt like rambling on about your work or techniques or processes, I'd find that most edifying.
Simply wonderful.
Well thank you very much for reading everyone ^^ and taking up twoish hours of your time. I can take pics of the legendary journyman bro's hammer tomorrow

Relic weapon forging quest completed!

Rolled 18

>Post ending
Do you even /tg/ Anon?

What's that hammer for? Its shape doesn't look familiar.
Lil' Mjolnir

Who he?
he's right. All good weapons have names. this masterwork must be given a title for its saga.


"Saint Eligius (also Eloy or Loye) (French: Éloi) (c. 588 – 1 December 660) is the patron saint of goldsmiths, other metalworkers, and coin collectors. "

Now you know, half the battle, etc.
well i started off first by turning the entire raw material a cherry red then i started to pound it into a shape i wanted. while keeping it that cherry red.

After my first initial shape i started to shape the edges with a grinder (being really gently with it and keep it redish. but not orange.)

then shape it again while drawing it (just means to stretch the metal) one the shape and length is acquired i dipped it in motor oil. instantly lowering the materials temp. (they do it in oil because water will make it brittle why exactly is beyond me.)

then i start to temper it. just running the torch over it very lightly until a light gold appears almost like a hay color. right after the rainbow color. if you see grey you have gone to far. ^^
Well Story Teller, it would appear you have the perfect weapon to bash in filthy bandit heads in post-apocalyptic America while on a lengthy journey to find your sister.
How about Elegius?
yes I do :3 Mtg and some D&D also just started getting into battle tech DM gave me a mad cat for an enemy of 5 :D was sweet!
gonna have to go with St. Eligius, or at least Eloy or Loye on this one. Tale of heroism is to good, needs an honest, biblefight-worthy saint name for this relic.


That's... a really elaborate name.
The Journeyman's Dedication
balls to the walls anon, balls to the walls
D: wtf... is my hammer that entire sentence?!

I am also curious. I was thinking along the lines of a carpenter's hammer.

Hope you got room on the hammerhead to engrave all of that in, welderbro.
So lets shorten that then OP. Lets go with Mad Cat.
Val'nyr the Dedicator

The hammer's name is now either

"Yesido" or "Dwassweet"

I vote for Yesido.

because someone might ask you, "Dude, do you have an epic relic blacksmith hammer?"

and your answer is "yesido"
D: can i name my own hammer though?

ish joo a welderbro too?!
Mad Cat. Seems fitting judging the quest he went on for it.

I like this too. The hammer's even a little gold, so the name fits twice.
Eh one off I'd go with St. Eligius since it is an actual name and very related.
Needs a definite article. The Mad Cat.
Argh both Mad Cat and Elegius are good. Decisions are haaaaaaaarrrrd.
>they do it in oil because water will make it brittle
I assume it's because water absorbs more heat, and cools it faster for a more rapid and more significant drop in temperature. I'm probably even less likely to know than you, though.

Thanks for the description, though. Hold no illusions that I could do something like that, but it's cool to know a little about it. If I ever write anything involving something like this, I just might be able to do it right. Plus it's just cool to know things.
Mad Cat Elegius?
in honor of this, It should be named Eligius
Now, are you, or are you not, going to go fight orcs and take back your long-lost great grandfather's subterranean mountain mine kingdom?

In darkest Tibet?
no problem ^^ and you prolly could just takes practice and messing around with it.
I'd guess that "Mad Cat" sounds more intriguing, because it's not the sort of thing you'd associate with a hammer, it's more the name for a motorbike or something. Someone asks about it, and you have to go "well, you see, there's a story there..."

I like Eligius and it certainly fits, but it seems more... conventional?
...not sure i'm pretty sure that's a level 10 quest think i need to do some more errand quests first.
Mad Cat Elegius! DO IT!
Seems appropriate. The Mad Cat Elegius.

Nah, "I had some anons on the internet guess a name" isn't that great a story. Stick with Eligius.
I actually like this one to be honest :3
This thread seems archive-worthy. What should I call it so it doesn't get confused with a quest thread?
Who says it can't have two names? One is the "proper" name, the other be the nickname.

Saint "Mad Cat" Elegius, the Relic Hammer (of Mohan?)
Could you just put 'Mad Cat' on one side and 'Eligus' on the other?

Alternately, I'm pretty sure you could find equivalents of Eligus' role in other mythologies, if Christianity isn't your schtick.
Good choice. It was just refluffed Tome of Horrors anyways.

Archived, upvote this shit here:

"storytime" tends to be the tag when we're relating our own tales of derring-do, but search for that tag befor eyou submit the thread to check for variations.
name it after your sister
Yeah i could do that. I wonder if a metal engraver will work on wood...?
Aw crap, too late.
Also might make it harder for someone to steal. Possibly even stain the handle a particular color or something?
The Epic Of Mohan's Relic

No offense, but I think it'd be a bit weird for a tool that's used to bash things all day to be named after me. It might seem like a bit of a passive-aggressive backhanded compliment.
could stain it a cherry red I think i have some left over from the side project i did for my mom a couple months back

hey hey hey i wouldn't bash things with it. I just slide it across the slag gently....most times.... also more horrible pics!
Ty ^^ still on top of the world right now
+1 vote for Eligius.

Also, good idea to get it engraved, if theft really is that big of a risk you need to make a mark on it. Getting it on the head is probably a better idea as someone could just swap the handle.
Etch Eligius on the hammer itself, with The Mad Cat on the handle.
This seems like the best course of action, OP.
will do! I have work in the am and want to show off my hammer. ^^ so good night guys and thanks for reading my story!
Eligius, because if he's the patron saint of metalworkers, and one of the key things that reccommended your promotion to journeyman was your willingness to help coworkers without bitching (vocally at least j/k ), then your selfless self-sacrifice means that you're on your way to becoming a paladin of steel.
DMs should learn from this story. I'm already thinking of how I could incorporate this. Rest assured Mad Cat Eligius will be a relic as soon as I can place it in my setting
Y'know, before everything else, it's kinda nice to see someone taking pride in their work.
Can we get a screencap of the story posts squished together? newfag here with no 4chan ability to speak of
OP, I was gonna post something, but fuck, you own this thread.
This is YOUR victory, your day, and I won't impinge on it.
This drink is for you!
Now I must roll up a Paladin dedicated to the quest of retrieving a sacred relic to his Patron god of smithing, The Hammer Of Saint Eligius.
I was going to be a welder. But my short fat self couldn't take the mental abuse.
This tale is amazing.
Mohan's Mallet (yes, I know its not a mallet) or Mohan's Mad Cat.

Also, What type of mine, and where?
I ask because I live in a small mining town in northern Canada.
