A blacksmith resides in almost all townships and residential areas within Sudeki. They are capable of altering armor and can also be paid to engrave weapons with rune enchantments that aid the characters in combat.
Most weapons will have empty Rune Slots which a blacksmith can fill on request. Square-shaped rune slots are considered standard, while Circle-shaped rune slots allow for more powerful enchantments on weapons.
The more powerful the upgrade, the more expensive the rune is to inscribe. Several weapons will fall into the character's hands with a magic rune that has been permanently inscribed; these runes will inflict negative status effects on enemies (such as Poison, Slow, Curse, or Weaken). Unlike all other rune slots, these status effect runes cannot be removed or changed. However, all other rune slots are available for customisation.
Throughout the game, the player may find Scrolls which a blacksmith can read and follow to augment a weapon or piece of armour with a rune.
