I'm designing a module based in the House of the Arcane Contraption as mentioned in Lands of Mystery.

Background
The House of the Arcane Contraption has been the hidden home and well-established school of the techno mage. Ran by the Cabal of the 5.3, the House is divided into five schools of engineering: firearms and siege weapons, small devices, steam armor, vehicles, and explosives.

To become a student in the House of the Arcane Contraption, the potential student appeals to a house they wish to study under. A teacher, student or someone else in the school must sponsor the potential student’s application. A review of the applicant’s abilities is done, which usually reflects the student’s feat chains, (for example, which Technological Knack feats they pick).

To prove their worth, every student must create his or her own special wrench (known to most outside the school as Shoni’s Disarming Tool). Some houses require it to be enchanted. If the potential student does not have the Craft Magical Arms and Armor feat, he can prepare the tool for enchantment and have a mentor finish the magical process. This tool becomes the primary tool for crafting for many students during their career at the House, though there are exceptions (such as the School of Explosives).

The School of Firearms and Siege Weapons

Head Professor H. H. Steelbrow leads the most popular school in the house. While the school attracts many Ironforge and Dark Iron dwarves, races of all kinds can be found here: night elf, high elf, blood elf, tauren, orc, goblin, even gnoll was said to have graduated from this School.
Over time, the school has become divided over the controversy of materials. Students under Steelbrow take the Special Materials feat to learn the secrects of arcanite; students of Darkvire learn secrets of Dark Iron. Darkvire has keeps many contacts in Ratchet so this is only known area in Kalimdor where one can acquire Dark Iron materials. (This is a bit misleading on Darkvire’s part, however, as there is no forge in the House that can heat dark iron. All parts come pre-manufactured from Darkvire’s sources.)
