Howdy there! I like Forged a lot. Only element I'll ask for a change is the references to electricity or such- replace with some manner of magical method, all that I'd see a need to change. The rest is golden!

Hi! The reference to electricity is quote at the Cutie Mark session, the eletric oven, right? As he can't use magic neither have interest in it, I'll change for wood or coal oven, ok?

Either one works. :) As for magic and electricity, it is a common substitute- magically charged orbs/batteries/other storage that provides power and light.
