Ok, so I have another question regarding the kingdoms in my world. One specifically, has built itself on the back of metallurgy. They are based in the north, and have exclusive access to the vast mountain ranges where they get their iron. I call them my 'metal kingdom' because that's basically what they are, they've built their prosperity and way of life around metal and the working of metal. My question..... I have two differing visions for this kingdom. One is a kingdom whose virtuosity in metallurgy gave rise to other sciences, such as chemistry. Or one where the metallurgists and metal smiths suppressed any other sciences to protect their positions as the quintessential tradesmen of their society. Help! Which would you choose to use?
