The dark art of Grafting blends the forbidden and the grotesque, pursued by twisted minds, seeking to defy nature's boundaries. Grafts are not mere prosthetics but living enhancements merged onto one's flesh through agonizing procedures.

Grafting is simple! Take your dead enemies' limbs and yield them against your new enemies. Or something like that..

In gameplay, the Godless Thanatomancers blend unholy spellcasting and soulweaving. They can take a myriad of forms, ranging from run-of-the-mill necromancers to mad steampunk scientists. These gruesome casters channel primordial elements to infuse an undead army and freely move souls from corpse to corpse to dominate the battlefield.
