A downloadable hack

An advanced playbook for Blades in the Dark, for turning an existing character into a steampunk cyborg.

Struggle with the loss of your humanity, or rise above the shell of your former self to bring the full force of the future down upon those in your way.

All hail the new flesh!


- Three different chassis options to pick from, each with different strengths and weaknesses.

- 12 technological features that allow you solve problems; or create new ones.

- A list of new traumas conditions for you to grapple with, reflecting your nature as something apart from humanity.

Future updates:

There are no current explanations on how to become Welded. I have left this up to the table to decide because I am unsure if it is helpful to prescribe a method. Future updates may look into this.


Check out the Spark-Grafted supplement by aesopian for an alternative approach to 'arcanepunk' augmentations for your characters.

You can tell that a lot of work went into this ambitious take on a Hull-styled transitional playbook. I'm very interested to see it in play!


Thanks, Laertes! For the kind words, as well as the encouragement and feedback during the drafting process.
