"Blacksmith" is the seventy-fifth episode of season three of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on January 25, 2021.


A shopping trip to stock up on new weapons leads to an unusual blacksmith named Sylvia.


At the top of the episode, Usidore reiterates his oath to protect Arnie and the artifact in his head, despite Chunt's insistence to get it removed. The group realize that their weapon game needs an upgrade, so Usidore leads the pack, arm in arm in arm, to a blacksmith's shop that he passed earlier.

The owner of the shop is Sylvia, the Blacksmith. She thinks the group is cute as she gathers her initial impressions of the trio. Before any of them could purchase a weapon, Sylvia explains her process; she will ask some questions, getting to know the person who will eventually get a sword, and the responses will determine what the material and shape the sword will be. They are evaluated one at a time, starting with the material, and Chunt goes first. The questioning is strange, at best, as the question is multiple choice scenarios, all options involving killing oneself. Usidore has no issues with this since he would, essentially, be reborn as another blue wizard. The questions reveal Chunt to wield a limp hay as he is weak, meek beta, prone to be walked all over. Usidore would wield a butthole shaped rock sword due to his assured nature and love of rocks. However, every time she tries to process Arnie, she sticks her hands and head in a fire. This does not hurt as much since she is a fire elemental. Usually this reaction would lead Sylvia to assume that the person would want to literally kill themselves, most likely with fire.

As rare as these experiences are for her, Sylvia had encountered an aura like Arnie's at least four times before, with varying time gaps. She will continuously head to her back room to get things for Arnie's sword. When she comes back, the group finds out a little more information on her. Sylvia was a former teacher at The Jizzlenob Preparatory School For Young Wizards who had sent students to a fiery doom to lava. These kids actually had the same energy as Arnie. When Sylvia goes to the bottom of her storage to, once again, retrieve items for Arnie's sword, Chunt suggests that they follow her down to see what she is up to, only to fine her loudly garbling up super hot siracha chips. Sylvia yells at them for interrupting her chip time and gives Arnie one of her chips and tells him that that was his sword. She also prophesizes that he is doomed, but Chunt retorts that by giving Arnie a chip, she is setting him up for failure.

Despite the terrible service, they end up paying her for her services, but attempt to ransack the place as revenge for their treatment. However, every chip is filled chips. Chunt also steals her cheese, which Sylvia pleas that they don't. They finsh steal the rest of her stuff as she munches on chips.
