Restorers of the True Death
This house was formed by humans bearing the Mark of Making. Creators of the warforged, the airships (with House Lyrandar), and the lightning rail (with House Orien), the members of House Cannith are the greatest artificers and inventors in the world. In the wake of the Last War, many artificers flocked to House Cannith, where they found work under Merrix d’Cannith. In his service they created magic weapons and warforged without regard for the risks inherent in making the tools of battle.
Originally from Cyre, much of the house’s assets, including its ancestral estates and its leader, were destroyed in the Mourning. The house still reels from the blow, its leadership split and struggling for dominance. After the Treaty of Thronehold, the warforged have been freed and House Cannith enjoined from making more. Each faction of the crafting house strives to replace that aspect of the house’s business with something similarly lucrative.
