First time in these forums so I just want to start by saying how amazing I think this game is and I'm excited for its future!

Sorry if this has been asked before but I'm having issues with my hired blacksmith. He takes my hard earned tin ore and makes like 12 shovels with it while ignoring the ever increasing list of orders. I fired the first guy for it but his replacement so far seems intent on using my forge for his personal practicing pit as well.

Any thoughts? Am I missing something where I can tell them to prioritize the orders first before stocking up on shovels for the shelf?
