A downloadable hack

Download NowName your own price

Become a fusion of living flesh and arcane clockwork machinery. 

This is an unofficial hack for Blades in the Dark in its very early stages.

Augment your scoundrel like you would in cyberpunk games, but use arcane clockwork creations instead of futuristic cybernetics. 

What you can do with Spark-Grafted:

  • Play as mechanized human-hull hybrids
  • Invent and craft body-modifying tech
  • Integrate weapons, tools, and gadgets into your body
  • Gain 12+ playbook-inspired body augmentations


  • Fullmetal Alchemist & FMA Brotherhood (automail)
  • Cyberpunk 2020 & Hack the Planet
  • Ghost in the Shell & Deus Ex
  • Dishonored & Bioshock
  • Magic's Ravnica & Kaladesh
  • James Bond & Batman gadgets

In development:

  • Fiction to connect spark-graft tech to Blades lore
  • Alternate crafting rules
  • New crew upgrades, claims, and special abilities

The current version is focused on the spark-grafts and the abilities they grant. If that proves to be fun enough, we'll work backwards to see if more fun can be had with a more robust system for gaining them through play or crafting them in downtime.

Feedback appreciated!
