The Mining & Smithing College of Vornair originated in the city of Canton in Highstone County.  Initially only Clan Thresh and Clan Ironheart were involved with the college. The College aims to help train young smiths and miners in their craft, while also furthering the knowledge of the kingdom in these aspects. It pushes it's students to invent new and improved weapons or armor, discover safer and more productive mining methods, as well as challenging them to discover new metals with which to work.

The college has begun to reach out to other Jarls and Thanes of the Kingdom of Vornair in order to expand it's facilities to provide it's services to the whole of the kingdom.
