Most morlocks have little talent for crafting, but a rare few have an uncanny knack for tinkering.

Where unusual materials are available, an improvised projectile might deal damage other than bludgeoning or piercing—for example, a morlock engineer by a campfire could build a projectile that deals fire damage.Sneak Attack The morlock deals an extra 1d6 precision damage to flat-footed creatures.Swarming Stance A morlock can share the same space as another morlock, but no more than two morlocks can occupy the same space. When morlocks share the same space, they gain a +1 circumstance bonus to attack rolls.Uncanny Tinker Two ActionsTwo Actions The morlock engineer tinkers with an adjacent construct or mechanical hazard. They attempt a Crafting check against the construct's or hazard's Fortitude DC. The morlock can't get an outcome better than failure if the target's level is more than double the morlock's. This ability reflects hasty battlefield repairs; once a construct or hazard regains Hit Points from this ability, it can't do so again until it's been Repaired.
Critical Success The target regains 8d6 Hit Points and a +1 circumstance bonus to attack rolls for 1 minute. Alternately, the morlock can deal 8d6 damage (bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing, as chosen by the morlock engineer) to the construct or hazard.
Success As critical success, but the target regains 4d6 Hit Points or the morlock deals 4d6 damage.
Critical Failure The morlock injures themself, taking 3d6 damage (typically bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing, but potentially a different type at the GM's discretion).

Sidebar - Additional Lore Morlock Cults

Morlocks led by cultists don't always follow an established religion, in part because their insular background limits contact with the rest of the world. In many cases, a morlock cult worships some figure from the group's past, be it a revered (or more often, feared) ancestor, or even the strange machines or statues left behind from a mysterious civilization that once ruled the place where the morlocks now live.
