- Cyborgs! Bring these robotic monsters to your game by Jason Nelson.
- Morgech Executor (CR 9) A hulking warrior covered in scars, scabs, stapled seams, and a deadly array of plates, blades, hooks, spikes, and burrs of steel erupting from its flesh wielding a massive spiked flail.
- Morgech Griever (CR 17) A lithe warrior seems more machine than human, with four spidery arms flanged with razor-like burrs. Its four-fingered hands hold deadly-thin blades and two bent-jointed legs end in clamp-like metal claws. The eyes glaring out of its mask-like face are all too human in their scarred sockets, while tubes and wires knit its metallic chest pod to the flesh and mechanized vitals within.
- Morgech Ravager (CR 4) A sickly-appearing yet strong overgrown hound with bulging muscles and strange barbed metallic devices protruding from its flesh.
- Cyberphrenic tadpole (CR 1/3) A tiny segmented terror, a mechanical mix of insect and crustacean trailing strands like a jellyfish. Its narrow body covered by thin protective plates while its underside is a mass of pinprick diodes and backlit wiring.
- Cranial Dissectibot (CR 5) A mechanical horror bristling with wires, compartments, and blinking lights up and down its thick stalk-like metallic body, balanced atop six spidery legs and multiple armatures, some with cables and clamps and others tipped with gleaming trocars and pneumatic needlers.

- The Optimal Path Tyler Beck, a long time d20pfsrd.com heavy-duty collaborator, shares some tips on getting the most out of the Collegiate Arcanist.
