So we have a tie...
Don't know why I hadn't noticed the poll function here, but I'll be sure to utilize it from this point onward. And it's first use will be in ending this tie we have found ourselves in. 

At the end of voting we had previously there was an even cast between the village hunter and the blacksmith. Considering this we will have another, shorter, poll between the two. 

Since I do not want to delay the actual story too long, I'll set a deadline of 2-4 days. before closing. Please make your decisions in that time. 

Blacksmith

Village Hunter
