In the world of blacksmiths, a Journeyman is required to submit a master work piece to a guild for evaluation.
The rank of MasterSmith is given to an individual who has demonstrated the highest qualities yearlong.
Since most changes are a temporary matter, a true smith forges works that last a millennium.
The demonstration of each level's mastery after a year's time will result in certification.
Certification is re-established once every year to maintain the rank.
