This article is about the location. For the character of the same name, see Subrosian Smithy.

The Subrosian Smithy is a location in Oracle of Seasons.[1] It is the only metalworking place in Subrosia, or even Holodrum.

Features and Overview

While at the metalwork shop, Link can get the master Subrosian Smithy and his workers to combine the Hard Ore and Wooden Shield in order to create the Iron Shield, and later, to get the Rusty Bell polished so that it will become the Pirate's Bell. If Link already has the Iron Shield, the shield the Subrosians create will be the Mirror Shield. This can only occur in a Linked Game.

The owner of the shop, the Subrosian Smithy, is more than a little strange, as he subtly request certain requests. If Link gives a wrong request, he will be refused service, and made to come back later. The workers seem to demand different answers for different items; if Link kindly asks them to fix the Pirate's Bell, they'll refuse, whereas they'll be only too happy to do so if he demands it. When it comes to the shield, if Link demands they make it fine (to become the Iron Shield or Mirror Shield, depending on which shield Link has), they'll refuse him service, whereas if he tells them to do whatever, they'll happily comply. Despite this, it is not commonly believed that the Subrosians are insane; rather, it is considered to be part of their unknown culture.
