The Forges of Nuln

The Imperial Gunnery School of Nuln is one of the most industrious institutions within the Empire of Man, whose sole responsibility is the mass production of gunpowder weaponry and the training of the the Empire's artillery crews. The province of Wissenland and its capital city of Nuln is respected across the Empire as the home to the finest handguns, cannons, and war-machines to have ever existed, save for those constructed by the Dwarfs. This makes them a desired commodity for any Imperial army using cannonry and as such, graduates from the Imperial Gunnery School are highly prized for their skills in training and maintaining artillery pieces on vulnerable targets with unerring accuracy.

Perhaps hte most surprising fact is that the Imperial Gunnery School does not create new weapons of war. Such task are executed by their sister institution; the College of Engineers. Once the Colleges of Engineering create a blueprint for a new war-machine, the Imperial Gunnery School then start manufacturing more of them and train their gunners on its use. This creates a high demand for their services with only a limited number are available at any one time. Yet this demand has still led to the school refusing to lower its standards to concentrate on producing better skilled gunners and engineers, rather than a lot of sub-standard graduates.
