What makes his Vanadium steel unique is that he folds multiple layers on top of each other (the more, the stronger) to create the best type of Vanadium steel. Even the dwarves envy him because of his skills as a blacksmith and take internships at his famed Damast-forge.
Because Pikesteel Village lies in the most northern part of MItgardia, the protection is mainly governed by the Mitgardian Rangers. Captain Virgil, the Wolf of the North, (My sigfig) is one of the eastern captains of the Rangers and this city's Governor. Under his lead, a small City Guard was formed, lead by the elf Ranulf.
Pikesteel Village not only holds Marcus' forge, also a small market area, several houses, a small slums area, the Drunken Mummy (a Kaliphlin tavern) and a statue dedicated to the great hero Ivar Pikesteel.
Two overview shots.
Marcus' Damast-forge. Marcus is talking to some dwarves who most probably want to know his secret.
And who's the lucky guy holding up a Vanadium folded chopping axe on the right? Looks like Mitgardian's favourite lumberjack and one of his companions (probably sick of envy because of the great axe Steen just bought, its almost like his saying: Hey let me hold it too!).
The busy Market area. There is a stand where you can buy the best Avalonian flowers and greenery, one with exotic Kaliphlin goods and trinkets and one with meat and apples from the Mitgardian fields.
Looks a bit like a scam. And lord Jakon is falling right into it so it seems
The Kaliphlin stand. Potions, treasure maps, you name it. (I don't know why, but I started to use my fleshies as Kaliphlins and I kinda like it. Its probably a tan...)
Rucorder and Cara talking to some werewolves from Nocturnus. (sorry about the hair, guess you two needed a hairdo nonetheless.)
Outside of the Drunken Mummy. An orc and some guy smoking outside of the pub (No smoking inside!) and two travelers paying their respect to the great hero Ivar Pikesteel.
Close up of the statue of Ivar.
Inside the Drunken Mummy. Interiors are not my best qualities. As is photographing...
Moving on upstairs. Two mercenaries without jobs just chillin'. And Rucorder's Colloseum champion shouting random things. That's just the way he is, I guess.
Two Ranger Captains talking to an important Kaliphlin mummy. On top of the stairs stands Ranulf, the city guard commander and one of his men.
The ballista used by the city guard for defence.
Slums area with a rich magistrate wondering through it. Not a smart move when you're rich.
Not a smart move at all! Assassins? Or just plain muggers?
Sir Glorfindel and Trian Buress, what a rare sight, two such great members of their own guilds in one picture. I guess Sir Trian was on a vacation under company of his own squire and a veteran member of the Flight of Dragons.
And here we see sir Virgil with his two companions Kieran and Lola meeting with sir Elon Chorian, the mighty Hersir of Valholl. Elon is accompanied by a Green Dragon, an elite member of the Hersirguarde.
A few of the Rangers. From left to right: Bahl, Lola, Virgil, Kieran, Adam and Abel. Virgil, Adam and Abel are brothers.
Some of the greatest heroes Mitgardia have ever seen. Rucorder, Steen, Elon, Glorfindel, Jakon, Cara and Sven the Mighty!
Some of the foreigners and locals at Pikesteel Village.
And the famed city guard.
I hope you guys like it! It took me quite a while to build, not only because of the size, but also because of my very limited time at the moment. I also had a lot of fun putting in other members' sigfigs, but unfortuantly I didn't have all the right equipment/hair so I'm sorry if some things are not correct with your sigfig.

The story with the pictures adds a lot (especially the part about Rudcorder's Colosseum champion that cracked me up)
The market stands are cool, too bad it is over the size limit for the commerce challenge.
Excellent job on the Mitgardian landscaping too, this build really makes me want to do a MOC with other members of Mitgardia in it

Next moc I might try to use other sigfigs from other guilds as well. Thanks for the comments!

anyway, excellent build, the buildings are all very well done, and the blacksmith's backstory is great as well.

Yeah me too, I've been building with Lego for quite a while, but taking pictures of it is relatively new to me, so I still have much to learn.
But at the moment I'm in the middle of moving to an other apartment in which I will have a nice little room with lots of windows where I can build and hopefully take some good pictures. And a new camera is on his way, so thats a great improvement as well.
Haha nice! Thanks for the comments everyone.
