The Arcforged[1] were the mechagnomes that followed King Mechagon and his ideas of "reversing" the Curse of Flesh.

King Mechagon's soldiers were all fully mechanized, most of them sadly forced into it.[2] Worse, their limbs were sometimes replaced with tools unfitting for normal function.[3] After such operation, subjects had to deserve their new robotic upgrades, piece by piece, as a status symbol.[4] The Rustbolt Resistance was fighting them, trying to overthrow Prince Erazmin's father in order to not let him accomplish his dream, but also for the freedom and autonomy to install mechanical upgrades out of their own will and choice.[5]

A few of King Mechagon's residual creations kept wandering after the end of the rebellion, refusing to accept his dethroning.[6] As a way to thank the mechagnomes for their help with resuscitating Gelbin Mekkatorque, Alliance forces cleared up the remaining Arcforged loyalists from Mechagon City, and as such, led to the reunification of gnomekind.[7]

Remnants after Mechagon's dethroning[]

Possible members[]


  • The Arcforged have access to "thrice die mentioned printing" (i.e. 3D printing technology), using it to create fake gnome baby skeletons and spread them around the Rustbolt Resistance's territory in order to demoralize them.[8]
  • They are named similarly to the Stormforged, also titan creations converted from flesh back to metal.

Official name[]

  • The name Arcforged is used by Mylune, and never by the Rustbolt Resistance, the Arcforged themselves or other mechagnomes. It is unknown if they refer to themselves using the term or are even aware of it.
  • It is also unknown if it refers only to King Mechagon's faction of mechagnomes, mechagnomes as a race or even mechanical creatures in general, by way of being forged through welding.
