Factory Workers are dwarves that work in the Blast Furnace factory found in the bustling dwarven capital, Keldagrim. Using the bars smelted in the blast furnace, factory workers use machinery to make them into useful items.
Keldagrim's economy is fueled nearly entirely by mining and smithing, and so it requires many workers to craft the ore mined into other items. After ore is transported to the blast furnace from areas such as the Dwarven mine, it is smelted in the furnace. The factory workers then use various steam-powered implements such as steam-presses to form the molten metal into sheets and other basic items.
Factory workers do not appear to actually be skilled in terms of smithing. Nearly all of their tasks are simple, involving the simple turning of a knob or the moving of a press. Because of this, they are not as highly valued by the dwarves as blacksmiths, and their wages are considerably low.
