- "The august Toolmakers are a young but powerful Guild, as all Dawi that practice a craft need tools."
- —The Toolmaker's Guild[1a]
The Toolmakers' Guild is only a few centuries old, which makes it an infant organization compared to some of the ancient, venerable Guilds, yet its rise in power and influence has been meteoric and uncomfortable according to some Longbeards. The Guild's greatest play was securing a Royal Decree stating that even if a journeyman makes his own tools, he must still pay tribute to the Guild.[1a]
