Hey guys! It's been awhile since I've put up a new build, it's been pretty busy around here. This is my BBG Round 1 entry. I wasn't able to build a entry for last years BBG that my brother Braydon entered in, and got to the 3rd round (Good job bro).

Category: A Place of Trade
Build a scene showing some form of Medieval trade (or inter-galactic, for you sci-fi builders), this could be a classic medieval market or a merchant traveling to distant lands. Be creative!
Here's a story to go along with the build.
A young boy of 14 walked though the now icy town looking for firewood he could find for hes family. But so far he hadn't found any. So he walked around until he found himself at the Blacksmith shop in the middle of town, and talked to the owner.
"Why, hello young man, what can I do for you?" Was the first thing to be said among them.
The boy then responded with, "Well, I'm hoping someone could tell me if they know of a place to get cheap firewood. I've gone though here looking for some for my family, but have had no luck."
The owner thought for a moment, then added, "I don't really know of a place right now, but I'll tell you if the market that's coming in a few days has some. I'm sorry."
The boy looked down. "No, It's okay. thanks anyway." With that the boy slowly walked away, but before he had gone to far, the owner of the shop stopped him, and said, "Wait," The boy stopped and looked back at the man. He continued. "I have firewood, but I won't be willing to sell it. But I will be willing to make a trade." The boy thought for a moment, then waited for the man to continue. "I will give you some firewood, but I will be needing something back from you." The boy waited some more, then asked, "What?" The man answered. "You're work, If I teach you to learn the skills of a blacksmith, and to work for me, I will give you half of the firewood I get each week from the delivery. Does that sound like a fair trade?" The boy thought, then answered with a simple "Yes."
The man nodded hes head then asked the boy to follow him. they walked to the side of the shop, where there was a small pile of firewood leaned against the wall.
The man smiled and said, "I will give you a bit of the firewood that is already here, just to give you a head start. But you've got to remember to be here tomorrow morning to start training." The boy answered, "I will sir." The man then grabbed some of the firewood and gave it to the boy. The boy thanked the man, and walked away with a goodbye and a wave, and the man then waved back.
