A micro-nuclear reactor combined with complex chemical synthesis replaces the body's need for food energy. Food is required only to replace matter lost from the body, reducing the user's intake needs significantly. This artificial stomach cannot get food poisoning. However, there is little room to shield the reactor, so the radiation increases the risk of cancer.

Health item prosthetic.png


A brain implant which inhibits nociception, or pain sensation. While it does allow the user to accomplish more, it turns out pain has a purpose. When you don't feel it, you can get hurt really bad really easily.

A Painstopper is a brain implant that will completely eliminate a colonist's pain and any pain-related mood effects.

Wood log.png

Peg leg

Peg legs are a prosthetic replacement for a pawn's leg. It is the worst kind of leg available, but is better than having a missing foot or leg.

Health item prosthetic.png

Power claw

A combat-oriented hand replacement consisting of a mechanical hand with a hooked claw on each finger. It cuts deep, and it is strong enough to crush a skull like a hand crushes an egg. The claws can be retracted, making it as useful as a natural hand for non-combat tasks, however its overall ungainliness slows down movement slightly.

Power claws are powerful bionic hand replacements. A power claw can only be installed on a natural arm. If a power claw is installed on an arm which then gets replaced with an artificial arm, the claw will be removed and boxed for reuse. A power claw deals 22 damage compared to 8 damage from a fist and slows movement by 8%.

Health item prosthetic.png

Prosthetic arm

An arm prosthesis. While it lacks a neural interface, its complex arrangement of internal joints allows it to mimic natural movement quite convincingly. Still, it is inferior to a real arm.

Simple prosthetic arms can sometimes be purchased from traders. A simple prosthetic arm has 50% efficiency. Therefore, one simple prosthetic arm and one healthy arm provide 75% manipulation. Having two simple prosthetic arms provide 50% manipulation.

Prosthetic heart

A heart prosthesis. It contains an electric motor that pumps blood smoothly around the body. Users often report feeling tired, but it's better than the alternative.

Health item prosthetic.png

Prosthetic leg

Simple prosthesis made to replace missing leg. Not very comfortable but quite efficient.

A prosthetic leg reduces a colonist's mobility to 92.5% while having one healthy leg. Two prosthetic legs provide 85% mobility. They are much better than a peg leg, but a discount version of a bionic leg (which allows to actually move faster).

Health item archotech.png

Psychic harmonizer

This brain implant projects the user's mood in a spherical psychic field, forcing others nearby to feel a blurred, simplified version of their emotions. It can be an powerful tool to keep morale high, but if the user becomes unhappy, it can lead to collective disaster.

Health item archotech.png

Psychic reader

Gives limited mind-reading ability, improving the user's ability to get the upper hand in negotiations and social situations. The effect is proportional to the user's psychic sensitivity.

Health item archotech.png

Psychic sensitizer

This brain implant stimulates growth in the regions of the brain related to psychic interaction, thus increasing psychic sensitivity.

Health item archotech.png

Psychic silencer

An archotech device that masks unintentional psychic emissions, rendering them undetectable. As a side effect, it also induces chronic pain. This kind of implant is used by criminal psycasters, wildcasters, and bladelink users to avoid detection by authorities.


Psylink neuroformer

A consumable archotech-created device that forms or upgrades a psylink in the user's mind.
The user presses the device over the eyes, where it links to the brain directly and restructures part of it. Afterwards, the device disintegrates into worthless ash.
