Welcome to CoE, and good luck with the blacksmithing empire, no matter the size you plan it.
I noticed you had some troubles with the first post in this thread, and the second one is a bit intimidating in bulk. Might I make a suggestion that you break large paragraphs up into smaller chunks, and take a look at some options here concerning font and various edits you can make to a post.
The more people willing to read your thread, the higher chance of success, no?
Again welcome, and I wish you the best of luck as the higher the ambition the more competition you will face. :D
