2500 years ago the Mark of Making made its first appearances on the artisans and craftsmen of ancient Cyre. This soon led to the formulation of Clan Cannith and through their natural inventiveness and the ability of their marks they created their own jurisdictions within Cyre and central Khorvaire.
The warforged are a relatively new race being created by House Cannith during the Last War in 965 YK for the purposes of warfare. The Warforged are sentient constructs and have free will, which earned them the same rights as human citizens in each of their homelands in 996 YK under the Treaty of Thronehold.
20 years ago a strange massive airship made of a strange metal crashed in Cyre. The House Cannith tinkerers quickly tried to dismantle the alien construct to find out how it works and to reverse engineer the new ship. After 20 years of research hardly any progress has been made. New Warforged were attempted but went mad and self deconstructed. New artisans were founded to help discover ways to build the new warforged. The new artisans found a way to graft the new warforged to their own bodies. The grafts used the a Carbon based matrix for muscle and the strange metal composite from the construct for skin. The Cannith artisans that used the grafts became known as the Mechromancers.

Grafts[edit]

Guidelines[edit]

9 grafts can be equipped. 2 arm slots, 1 back slot, 1 chest slot, 2 hand slots, 1 head slot, and 2 leg slots. You have grafts according to the "Number of Grafts" column of the Mechromancer table. Once a graft is equipped it can not be unequipped unless it is replaced with another graft.(example: you change your right arm from organic to adamantine, then adamantine to arm blade) You can not return a body part slot to being organic once it has been grafted. Grafts are categorized by slot then functionality. Base functionalities are Graft Casting, Enhancement, and Weapon.

Graft Casting[edit]

Some grafts allow you to cast spells. Intelligence is your spellcasting ability for your spells. You use your Intelligence whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Intelligence modifier when setting the saving throw DC for any spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.
Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier
Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier
When you use your Attack action on your turn to make a "main hand" weapon attack, you can cast an "off hand" graft spell as a bonus action. When you use your action on your turn to cast a "main hand" graft spell, you can make a light weapon attack (with either hand) as a bonus action.

Arms[edit]

Two arm grafts can be equipped, one to the "main hand" and one to the "off hand". Some Grafts have a prerequisite on needing a "main hand" or "off hand", if no prerequisite is named then the graft can be equipped to any arm you choose.

Enhancement[edit]
Adamantine Plate[edit]

+1 to AC and +1 to Constitution. Can not increase an ability score above 20.

Bulk Arm[edit]

+1 to Strength or Dexterity; can not be changed after equipping. Can not increase an ability score above 20, unless your race allows you to go over 20.

Communications Link[edit]

Gain 10 Com Links. Com Links allow images and sound recordings to be sent to you and can be used by any creature with an Intelligence of 10 or higher. The interface on each Com Link requires minimally a Bonus Action to use, and up to 1 minute to fully transmit a 12 minute Record. The user of the Com Link may perform other actions while the transmission takes place, but must be within 90 feet of the Grafted location during the transmission. The Com Links are Tiny objects that may be hung from a necklace, or worn in some other fashion. Images and sounds may be recorded within 30 feet of each Com Link, following normal rules for vision and sight. Upgrades to the Com Links may include Dark Vision, Extended Audio Range, or True Sight, as well as other GM approved features that may be useful.
The Com Link data, called Record(s), may be projected from the Grafted location onto any surface, or may appear on the Grafted location, much like a futuristic projector or monitor screen. Any images or sounds the Grafted location can see and hear within 30 feet may be recorded in a Record, with a maximum duration of 12 minutes per Record. During this time, each sense used, vision or hearing, or both, may not be used normally, much like when blinded or deafened. This allows for 2 hours total of information to be recorded, enough for an interesting show at a tavern or theater to be recorded in 10 segments.
Additionally, each Record may be appended to, allowing for multiple recordings to be pieced together on each Com Link, much like a journal or personal voice log has multiple recordings. Upgrades to the length of time of each Record may be available, at GM discretion. Multiple Records may be played simultaneously, offering multiple views, or creating a combined image, much like a hologram, of different viewpoints of the same recorded area.

Grapple Gun[edit]

Allows you to hide a one handed retractable grappling hook inside your arm. This hook can attach to any surface, much like a regular hook could, and holds 60 feet of metallic cable, and as a Bonus Action once per round you can shoot or reel the hook. You can attempt to grapple a creature within the hooks range. The target must make a Strength saving throw (dc=10+STR Modifier+ proficiency) and can repeat this save at the beginning of each of their turns. The target is grappled on a failed save and takes 1d4 piercing damage. On a success, the target is not grappled and only takes half damage(rounded up). You can pull the target toward you as a free action. You can equip or unequip the Grapple Gun as a Bonus Action once per round. You can't grapple Creatures more than one size larger than you with this Graft.
