The Great Forge is the birthplace and past home of the Skeptic, it was the also the birthplace of all original Metal-kin (that is, the only fertile Metal-Kin being that all metal-Kin that derive from a M-K reproductive methods are born infertile). It was once attacked by the Praying Mantis but they were quickly destroyed. All that is currently known about it is that it was smited to smithereens by some unknown attacker.
