From the White Wolf catalog:

Spirits in the Material World
"So kid, you thought you were hot stuff on the nets while you were alive. Ever hack anything from the inside before? Didn't think so. Well, don't worry, back then you were only human. Now you're something else. See you on the inside!" — Kathryn Chan, Renegade Artificer
Taste the Hammer and the Flame!
In the darkest heart of Stygia, they wait for you. Do you have what it takes to place another in the flames of soulfire? Can you bring your hammer down and close your ears to the screams? Or even now, are the Legionnaires bringing you to the forge in chains? One way or another, the Artificers' Guild is waiting for you.
Guildbook: Artificers is the first in a series of Guildbooks for Wraith: The Oblivion. Revealing the secrets of the Eldest Guild, it will take you from the desolation of the Labyrinth to the silicon nerves of the Information Age.
