|Strife levels 21-31 and 35|
- This level occupies the map slot MAP22. For other maps which occupy this slot, see Category:MAP22.
The Forge is the metal-working part of the Factory. Although only accessible from the "good" walkthrough path, it plays no plot-essential role in the 1996 edition. Visiting it to forage for supplies is purely optional.
In the 2014 The Original Strife: Veteran Edition, this map is on the path to the Red Talisman. Having got the other two Talismans and the Blue Chalice, and given the latter to Timothy in the Order Commons, come here and speak to the Master Smithy (A). Tell him that you are on official business, and he will open the exit to Factory: Production and give you some more information. Finish the conversation, then go to Production (B).
