Trader of hides and maker of goods.

Matthew's role within the group is two fold. Firstly as a Fellmonger, he is a perveyor of animal hides and furs, and secondly as a leather worker, crafting and creating all manor of essential and practical items, by hand, from those hides.

He is capable of making bags and pouches, belts and arming straps, shoes and sheaths, toys and water carriers. The camp is very grateful to have him around when a belt breaks or a shoe needs resoling. Leather is an incredibly tactie and versatile natural material and it's uses in medieval times were endless. Having access to this kind of skill was sure to make you both a lot of money and a lot of friends.
