>>30389899My favorite story is the time that I realized what no fatigue or need to sleep really means. It means that warforged can sprint 24/7. Not walk, not forced march, full-on sprint. That can get fucking ridiculous when you have a monk's boosted movement speed and the Run feat.In the campaign where I realized that, I put the runner at Marathon to shame. I would sprint ahead of the party's horses to get shit done, run for supplies, outpace airships, go soaring from tower to tower in Sharn... I even ran across the bottom of the ocean. People don't really consider untiring, unsleeping beings who need no food, water, or air to be as powerful as they really are.

Does anyone here have the story of the Warforged whose friends died in a cave in in some mines?He dug and dug and dug and dug and dug and dug. He never found them but he kept on digging.People became inspired by him. They helped him dig.Anybody?
Anyone who isn't playing a miniature Iron Giant is playing a warforged wrong.

>>30392514I kind of feel like the Iron Giant is limiting a warforged's potential due to the whole "barely speaks" thing.Although a Warforged Monk with Vow of Silence would be funny, I suppose. Don't think I'd trust anyone I know, self included, to roleplay that very well.

>>30389989I made a Warforged Ranger once. Your post is very relevant to a session I played once.Basically our party was part of a special military group put together by the king to weed out some resistance fighters. We had developed a plan to out and exterminate one of the key heads of the rebel fraction. A spy was in our ranks and by the time we caught word of it, he had already skipped town and was a couple days ahead of us. Obviously the DM was trying to railroad us into a stand off against the general instead of assassinating him like we had planned. He basically told us that there would be no way for us to catch up without killing ourselves of exhaustion. I told the DM it was alright. Robots don't need to rest. For the next 3 in game days, my Warforged tracked the spy down without rest. Day and night I ran out ahead of the party on my own. In the middle of the night I snuck into the spies tent. I turned him over and placed my blade to his throat. The DM squeaked out in his most pathetic voice he could muster. >"H-How? There is no way... I had horses!"To which I replied. >"Your horses eat, drink, breath, sleep. I don't."Later that week, we assassinated the rebel head and recaptured the city without having to fight anyone.

Warforged are quite possibly the most based race in fantasy rpgs but how do you guys cope with the reduced healing?It's the only thing that gives me doubts about playing a Warforged.
>>30391982Original author here.Gimme a second, I have the .txt file saved somewhere.
30396513"Three thousand years. Really, I must admire your persistence.""Three thousand two hundred and fifty-eight years, four months, eleven days, 12 hours, 20 minutes. Where are they?""Who? Your 'friends'?"The King of the Dead threw his skeletal head back and laughed, a screeching roar that echoed into infinity, blotting out the cries of the damned. The metal construct was unperturbed."They're long gone by now, Warforged. My torturers are remarkably effective. Assuming I do let you search for them- which won't happen- and assuming you do manage to find them among the trillions and trillions of damned souls here, their minds will be long gone. It really is hopeless.""Take me to them.""You're ordering around Death himself? You know, I might let you live, if only to reward you for your persistence.""Take me to them. Now. Failure to do so will result in consequences.""Are you threatening me, machine? You? Alone against death? What are you going to do? Dig a hole in me?"The construct shook its head, flakes of dirt drifting off its rusted plating."No."
>>30396568Then came a sound: one which had never before been heard in the land of the dead. A great rolling shout of joy, of anger, of passion, and of determination. The sound of thousands of warriors, peoples of all nations and races, their arms raised high in triumph. The King of the Dead recoiled in horror."What? How? What have you done?!"The Warforged merely stared at him."We've come for my friends. Take me to them, please.”The skeletal figure stumbled back, an expression of uncomprehending shock on its leering face."I- I don't understand! You were only one! You were alone! They knew you'd never be able to come for them! How? WH-"It stopped as an iron fist seized its bony neck. It struggled, flailing helplessly against the unstoppable force of the construct."Take me to my friends."The cacophony of the dead was changing, as those who still had some sanity left in their corroded souls realized what was happening. The King of the Dead regained some measure of his composure, ceasing his struggle."It's futile, you realize. How can this pathetic 'army' of yours stop the legions of hell? You are puny mortals, wandering across a world you can barely comprehend. And me? I am Death! Shatterer of Worlds! This ends here!"Summoning all of its unholy power, the King of the Dead smote the Warforged, leaving it a smouldering ruin. Or at least it tried to. The dark energies keened, recoiling from the construct's body like frightened children."Impossible! Nothing is that strong! NOTHING!"
>>30396591The construct seemed to sigh, its ancient head cocked to one side on corroded joints."I have been digging for three thousand two hundred and fifty-eight years, four months, eleven days, 12 hours, 20 minutes. In that time I have seen 25 different kingdoms, belonging to five different species, rise and fall in the outside world.""What's your point, machine?""In all those kingdoms, in all those peoples, there was one constant, one infallible thing that remained, burning in the dark when all else had failed. Friendship."The King laughed again."Friendship? Oh, please. You think idealism, and not brute stupidity, has got you here? You think friendship can kill Death himself?""No. Only the Dead can kill Death. And we have reminded them what friendship is."Suddenly, the construct dropped the King, its voice rising to an impossibly loud cry, yet again blotting out the sounds of the underworld." I will knock down the Gates of the Netherworld, I will smash the doorposts, and leave the doors flat down, and will let the dead go up to join the living! And the dead will outnumber the living!And the dead will be filled with anger!At the one who made them so!ALL YOU WHO DIED, WHETHER FOR GOOD OR FOR EVIL, REMEMBER THIS.DEATH TOOK YOUR FRIENDS FROM YOU.”
>>30396615Dead silence. Then one last final earth-shaking roar, a boom of righteous anger, of memory for those long lost, of hope for a better future. The Dead rose. And in the land of the Dead, the Dead outnumbered their jailors. The King fled, gibbering, his cloaked form fading away into darkness. And the construct stood alone.It saw four figures. Four familiar figures, and knew that its task was complete. It knew that now it could rest. As the light faded from its eyes, it whispered a single word."Friends."
>>30389989I have to question that 'bottom of the ocean' bit. That definitely isn't legit. We're talking about a LOT of water. That'll slow you to a crawl, even if you don't get crushed by it. And assuming it's a relatively shallow part of the ocean, it'll still slow you to a crawl just from the sheer weight.But aside from that, yes. Yes, it is awesome. Though it might be best to avoid using it -all- the time. I've known some DMs who'd rule that you'd start taking damage from wear and tear. They don't appreciate mecha Flash.

>>30396495Eberron has spells and infusions that heal warforged normally, but when you can play a PC that has adamantine full plate at level 1 and has access to the best defensive PRC in the game, you don't worry so much about healing.

I'm unfamiliar with Warforged, so forgive me if I'm being dumb.Can Warforged wear Armors? If so, do they actually wear it? Is it just materials slapped on? Do they go to an armorer and have him make the character out of new materials?

>>30397734It tends to vary, but usually they can't wear armour, or at least not extensive amounts.
I personally like the idea of higher quality metals and materials being grafted onto the Warforged as they find them/they become available in higher levels.
>>30398084Which raises the question for DMs, what do you/do you not allow Warforged players to do in terms of "upgrades/mods"?
>>30398160vibrating cocks are allowed but only on the condition it replaces another limb entirely
>>30398160I guess it really depends on how much time and resources they're willing to put towards it I guess. I mean, it's the same thought process as letting them buy certain items. A Warforged can't wear armour, so it'd make sense if they got themselves enchanted to have a higher AC, for example.
>>30398225>Warforged trades in all four extremities for vibrating cocksHe's got a move speed of 10, but god help you if you fall on him.
>>30396668No, pressure won't crush solid metal until it gets REALLY deep. It crushes people because we have easily compressible gas permeating our body. The actual problem is the muck of millions upon trillions of dead plankton, fish, and other sea creatures, which coats the ocean floor in a fine slime dozens to hundreds of feet deep, until you get very close to shore. Sure, you can slog through it, as a warforged, but you'll be doing so slowly, and totally blind. You'll trudge in circles until the oceans dry up.
>>30398297Would you be blind? How do Warforged "see" exactly?

>>30398331Magic, basically. And yes, a standard warforged doesn't have biological eyes, but neither do they have super Xray vision or whatever. They're fluffed as being approximately equal to a human in almost all ways, just golemized. They'd hit the bottom like a lead weight, and assuming they have the strength to shove ancient muck and mud around at all, wander in an utterly opaque blackout, hundreds of feet below the ocean surface, which is pretty dark in and of itself. Without some sort of advanced vision equipment, you'd be absolutely unable to see or orient yourself.

>>30398556Is that Gabriel Ba's work?If so, I loved Umbrella Academy.
>>30398419>>30398537>>30398556That was a pretty fun little adventure. We had to cross a plank over a pit.First the ranger. No problem.Next, the Fighter/rogue. He's wearing light armor, so he just makes it.Then Robocop's turn. I took one look at the plank. I took two steps toward the edge, and walked straight off. I fell 20 feet onto a pile of stones. We spent the next 10 minutes hauling me up.>DM: Why'd you do that?>Me: There's no way I would have made it across that. I'm 300 fucking pounds. This way, we get to keep the plank for later.>DM: Seriously?>Me: Also, I didn't want to risk falling on Bessie (my 10 foot pole). It was for naught though. Bessie broke later, during a fight against some orcs. We gave her a viking funeral.Then we fought a boss and two Ogre Magi. They were fucking us up, but then I smote one of the Magi and the other cast sleep on us and the boss. Everybody saved but the boss. The mage turned into mist form and fucked off.The DM was kinda tired of our bullshit by that point.
>>30398696His mouth>>30398715It is actually. It's from a series called Casanova, which is pretty weird and fun, but it's not written by the same guy as Umbrella Academy.
>>30397734Warforged have a racial feature that gives them light armor standard, and it can be enchanted like armor. Theyere are Body feats they can take at first level for mithral or adamantine plating, which count as medium and heavy armor respectively, and can also be enchanted. They can also take the unarmored body feat, which means they're built without plating and can wear any armor they find normally. The standard plating doesn't interfere with monk or druid abilities.
>>30398778No, I knew it wasn't from UA, but I would recognize that art anywhere. Really cool style.
>>30398297The intent of my comment was that, if you're walking across the bottom of the ocean, reaching those extreme depths is a possibility, however slight. But that was a side note.The main argument was that with all that weight bearing down you and all crap at the bottom, you will be moving at a snail's pace at best.WALKING it is implausible, RUNNING it is absolutely impossible. Unless he's got some special magical gear, of course, but that goes without saying.
In the event that my current character dies I'm going to roll up a warforged monk/paladin hybrid. 4e so monks aren't broken. But he will be when I get him to wear plate armor and punch things with his mecha fists of pelors firey love.
>>30398789>Warforged DruidsAh man, that takes me back to my first campaign. I played a war forged Druid who didn't understand nature very well. I'm pretty sure I once asked my horse to "tell me it's secrets" once.I also fell in love with Call Lightning.
>>30398820Paladin/Monk is pretty shitty stats-wise, but it's ok because 4E is fairly easy.Just focus on damage and dont try to tank or heal.
>>30397799Laughing so hard. Oh lawdy my sides
>>30398873Tim also carried around bottles of "Angry Olaf's Ragin' Shavin' Cream", which he smashed on his face when he raged so that he could foam at the mouth.
>>30398820May want to avoid hybrid. There's a multi-class feat in Dragon 404 that gives you the Monk's Unarmed Strike (along with proficiency in monk implements and training in Athletics or Acrobatics), and it requires DEX or STR 13. As I recall, Paladins can be Strength primary, so it's more efficient.
>>30398084>>30398160>>30398225>>30398237You guys know that Warforged have an entire list of items called Components that only they can use, right? Everything from Skill bonuses to integrated weapons systems to new sensory modes, and special-purpose tools of all kinds from fingers that extrude lockpicks and feet that claw into the earth for climbing and resisting bull rushes. Somatic Cables are pretty neat; they are small tentacle-like appendages you attach to your torso, and they handle all somatic spellcasting components so your hands can be doing anything else. Artifact-level components include the Winged Cape which will give you a 150/Perfect fly speed and 2 adamantine wing buffets at 1d10 a pop. And the Tauric Belt turns one into a quadruped, A list of feats, which can be taken at level 1, to change your armor plating into Mithril, Adamantine, Darkwood, or even to remove it entirely. They can also have their fists inlaid with Alchemical Silver or Cold Iron to have their natural attacks count as such, which I think are feats. Components. (Not sure if it's all of them. Their sources are somewhat scattered.)http://eberron.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_warforged_componentsFeatshttp://dndtools.eu/feats/categories/warforged/And even with all of this, that's not even counting the _normal_ means of heavily modifying a character's physical form and function. There are a huge amounts of grafting options, allowing you to crib limbs and abilities from Undead, a half dozen Abberations, Elementals, Plant creatures, other types of Constructs, Elementals, and even Dragons.

Anyone know where I can find info on Warforged for Pathfinder?
>>30399863Doesn't have it because copyright issues
>>30399728Wonderful. Any more stories?
>>30400299Is there an equivalent with similar feats and such?
>>30400443The Advanced Race guide has an example of a how you would make a clockwork race. There is also guidelines on making your own.
I played a warforged lich once. Or rather he thought he was a lich. Partly because he reasoned that since he didn't age and die like fleshbags he must be an immortal being, mostly it was because he was crazed and a little senile from old age. He decided on lich because at the time he only knew of three types of immortals gods, vampires and liches. He clearly wasn't a god and he didn't drink blood so by process of elimination he decided he must be a lich.Nasty habits included>attaching bits of flesh and skin to himself to "maintain his illusion spell so no one noticed he was undead">lurking in graveyards>stalking priests>declaring the party to be his enthralled minions>summoning skeletons>attempting to convince old people to sell him their bodies after death>attempting to resurrect the chicken stew>insultingly informing the BBEG he was amateur because he was only a necromancer and not a lich like himself

>>30400601Hope you don't mind, but I am absolutely stealing this.
>>30400683His two skeleton warriors had been killed that day and no respectable lich would be seen without undead minions. The stew was the nearest things with bones in it
>>30399302>Tauric BeltIs fucking awesome, but its unlikely to be given by the DM (like every artifact) due being overpower.
>>30400316Unfortunately, the game in question was a one-shot, so that was the only time I played that character.I have another 4e Warforged planned, this time a Warforged Rogue, with the Wererat theme, and the Warforged Juggernaut PP, named Rattrap(shut up, I forot that was the name of the Beast Wars character. I might rename him to Mouser...actually, I like that, doing that).Basic idea is to be sneaky sneaky until combat breaks out, then sneak sneak around before shouting at the top of my robot lungs "MOUSER TRANSFORM" to turn into a robot Wererat, then rush at the nearest enemy shouting "MOUSER SNEAK ATTACK" before bludgeoning him unconscious with a mace.
>>30400601A Warforged Necromancer would be interesting to play. He/she'd probably have a callous disregard for the value of life, which would make for some interesting player-player interactions.
>>30400988I fucking love you.
>>30396778>>Nah, just keep running>>"Until what?">>Until I run out of continent
>>30400988If, when/if make that character, you happen to have any ally capable of forging magic items, there's a pair of gauntlets that increase damage when you're in beast form.

>>30399302It's a shame that the only flight component is artefact-level. I mean, I guess compared to Wings of Flying, it's much better flight and gives wing attacks, but they could've made a weaker version then. Is wanting warforged with cool wing components so bad?
Don't mind me, just bumping through.
>>30400601Oh man, we had a guy who played a Warforged Cleric who used the same line of reasoning but thought he was a God.
>>30398414>Can't orient yourselfInstall a compass in your head.
>>30401610In comparison to most artifacts, the warforged ones seem totally harmless and I would definitely permit them into my campaigns if a player indicated he wanted em.
Actually, fuck, I just remembered another Warforged I played briefly(not a one-shot this time, but the campaign kinda died out after a few weeks).Warforged Warlord(4e still). In-setting, there wasn't TOO much in the way of magic, or at least not really enough for golems to be feasible, but the DM would allow it if I had a good explanation.Neither golem nor robot, he was simply a cursed soul. Ages ago, a general waged a war against(some country). While a good leader and tactician, he would always settle for no less than total victory and always believed in his own sense of Good, regardless of how other people saw it. After a skirmish with an enemy army, he commanded a nearby town be attacked and burned, the enemy army had been staying there, so the town had obviously allied themselves with the enemy. As the dust cleared, the soldiers he commanded uneasy about what they were commanded to do, a dying mage put a curse on the general.Though his flesh and bones may rot and break, his spirit is forever cursed to wander the earth, bound to his armor eternally until he can atone for what he had done.Centuries later, the general, now forever an empty husk of armor known as the Watcher, his memory long since faded and twisted, was in a old gothic-style London, England-ish type town, working with a group of monster hunters to root out a conspiracy within the city.Watcher himself was not the same armor, but he had learned to pass himself from armor to armor, adding bits and pieces to himself until he was literally a walking, sentient pile of magic items.(think Mala Mala Jong of Xiaolin Showdown)Shame the game only lasted briefly, it seemed like an interesting story too. Our last week had up investigating a church, doing an impromptu autopsy on a body we found, then fighting off a bunch of black vines that had taken root in his organs(eventually reaching into the brain, taking control of the body and fleeing).
I LOVE Warfogred. I also love that, as a Warforges, you don't need to worry about stamina, fatigue, or breathing/sleeping/eating.Warforged Barbarians are over powered that way. Once played one who got stuck in a trap (water filling up the room) and instead of the frantic fight for escape the DM planned, I just started chipping away at the wall with a maul.
>>30398808>WALKING it is implausible, RUNNING it is absolutely impossible. Unless he's got some special magical gear, of course, but that goes without saying.Freedom of Movement really is a wonderful spell
>>30402543I don't remember how the other editions did it, but now in 5e, Warforges need to enter what is basically a "power down" state for 4 hours in order to be a full form.
>>30402638So they're elves now and need to trance out?Bugger that noise
>>30402638I'm pretty sure in 3.5 they could go forever, not sure about 4e
>>30402638In practice in say 3e they need to have 8 hours of undisturbed rest too to refill their spells, just like elves, but they can be patiently on guard duty. Which is a big disadvantage. I've read so many adventure modules which go "THE MONSTERS FOLLOW THE PCS AND RAPE THEM IN THEIR SLEEP LOL ^_^"
>>30402638>>30402663They need 4 hours of "non strenuous activity" but they are fully functional and aware.
>>30402703Circulation?As in blood systems..?
>>30402703>no you can't polish everyone's stuff while they're asleep>no you can't work write letters while they sleep>fuck it, you can't move, but you just stare ahead for 4 hours a night while the elves trance and dream
>>30391349Seriously?Huh, our GM always ran it like common bandits were level 10+. And everybody had an epic level cousin.To his credit, he's an awful GM and I don't play with him anymore.
>>30402828I always let them do mundane things around town if they're at an inn, as long as it doesn't take too much game time.Or forage if they're camping inna woods.
>>30402881My one Warforged would sharpen knives while staring at his party members for long hours.
>>30402881"GREETINGS PARTY MEMBERS. I TRUST YOU SLEPT WELL? I HAVE SPENT THE NIGHT GATHERING FOOD FOR YOU ALL.""Um, you brought us some shrubs and a burned sapling.""IT WAS A DANGEROUS HUNT, BUT I DO IT BECAUSE I CARE."
I've been working on moving warforged to PF, is this any good? I found someone else's work but wanted to change it to match the other PF races better.
>>30403156PF seems to consider the Living Construct subtype to be a very broken idea, judging by Androids (which are similar) being worth 16 RP.
>>30403156Also, you can't use Improved Natural Attack with Unarmed Strikes because Sean K Reynolds hates Monks.
>>30403221I remade that too. It takes language from the PF ARG, defines living constructs in relation to constructs in Pathfinder (i.e. critical vulnerabilities) and some inspiration from 4e. It also ports some thing from the warforged race itself into the LC subtype for brevity.As far as 16 RP goes, I agree but I think Paizo is wrong about it. warfroged weren't massively OP in 3.5, I'm guessing SKR just got BTFO by a warforged monk in Eberron and never let it go.>>30403242Trained Fist replaces Slam, so you'd be applying Improved Unarmed Strike to his regular fists. His fists are also treated as one size larger as per Improved Natural Attack, but he doesn't actually gain the feat.
>>30389899>built a warforged charger with a drill (not a bigdaddy I promise.)>party is in the underdark running some errands for some undead information broker>passes drill in for upgrade, receive ghost touch dagger because 'forged doesn't like not being able to hit things>Fighter6/Warblade8, not even maximum damages for chargan>be fighting an undead minotaur in some stone forest underground>charge it> still not dead>oshitniggerwhatareyoudoing.png>it picks me up and throws me at the rest of the party>party bard has been casting a bunch of bullshit to make everybody better at everything>haste+freedom of movement+greater heroism+ who knows what.>Reckless charge, leaping attack>76 jump check, DM usually not in favor of the rule of cool says I knock on the ceiling of the Underdark>I ask, can I turn and make another jump to reach the ground faster."you could dance on the ceiling with that check">turn, jump 63, attack, hits, damage 120 something plus damage from a falling object.>ORBITAL STRIKE INCOMING>DM rolls, adds something like 70 damage to the Minotaur.>says the falling damage would put me at -8hp. >goodnightsweetprince.gifyou will be missed Excavation Unit 43in the end I didn't actually kill the minotaur because the DM a shit, but it was one of the most fun characters I've played in a long time.
>>30403415Your DM is likely to have been bullshitting you, a 190 hp undead minotaur for example would have 29 hit dice.Also you're still alive at -8 hp as a warforged.
What do Warforged actually look like? I'm imagining something like Al from Full Metal Alchemist: just a big suit of armor, except there's no dude in it. Is this accurate?
>>30403453Some Warforged look like RobotsSome look like AlThere are many choices, as long as they are humanoid
>>30403453I should have clarified that a warforged comes in a standard humanoid design, but they can be modified for specific purposes. Because they come as blank slates, mentally, it takes them time to develop their own personality, at which point they may begin to modify themselves to suit their feelings.
>>30403453Note that warforged aren't completely metal, that there is a good amount of wood, stone, and (I think) some variety of alchemical hemolymph. They aren't so much animated suits of solid armor as wooden mannikins with metal plating. In 3.5, the metal plating might be mithral or adamantine, or even ironwood.
>>30403486What the fuck weapon is he wielding? Spiked Chain is obvious, but that's a two-hander item.
>>30403453Here's a more "personalized" warforged.>>30403540Warforged can replace their limbs with weapons. You take a -2 penalty for using a two-handed integrated weapon with just one hand, I believe. You can integrate tower shields too. Plus he's a warforged juggernaut, which is all about that.
>>30403453And here's a psiforged, a warforged purposely built for psionic powers. The crystals in its body make it count as a cognizance crystal.
>>30403452I know he was bullshitting me. He didn't even roll, he just said you take 100 falling damage. I ended up lopping off the things arm. The thing that killed him was the fact I rolled so miserably for initiative. the minotaur was the only thing that rolled lower than me. His turn comes up, he grabs me and uses me as a club against the rest of the party. He's better than most of the DMs I've heard about, but he does pull shit like this often enough. I do what I can to avoid being him when I GM my games.
OP here.next week, starting a 3.5 campaign with a few friends.warforged starting stats:str: 18 con: 17 (19 with racial)dex: 15int: 8wis: 1char: 8dis gun' be gooooooood

>>30403939You motherfucker. I'm the dude who wants to play a warforged. Need GM. ;-;
>>30403540Probably a flail of some sort

I like Warforged. Only played as one once, though. This is the incomplete portrait of Juan Sanchez Villa-Robos Ramirez, lead vocalist and bassist for the band Total Harmonic Distortion.He was betrayed by one of his allies. Not intentionally, but still.
>>30404055flail + warforged = DM loves youso many chances to kill the guy next to you
>Buddy of mine rolls up a Warforged Monk, named Ironhide>Insane jump and acrobatics>at one point we fight giant elasmosaurs in a lake (DM called it a river, but fuck that, it must've been a lake)>At one point Ironhide runs up it's spine, climbs onto it's face, and punches it in the eye>crits the roll>He punches through it's eyeball and hits its' brain>it suffers so much intelligence damage that it forgets how to breatheWe dubbed him Ironhide "The Retard-puncher"
>>30404165That title is just awful.I mean like the wording, there have to be better ways to say "this guys punches you until you forget how to breath or can't"
>Be DM of 4e game.>Have a reference to an Isaac Asimov story with a group of warforged that were just made.>One is different from the rest, but looks exactly the same. It has crucial information.>Party finds out which it is after some puzzles, but the owner wants to scrap it.>They pool together most of the money they have between them to buy him.>Next week, bring back a warforged monk named Isaac.>Think about how much DMPC's are usually bad.>Do my best to attempt to kill him in a logical way.>They are too damn good at teamwork and protecting him.>Eventually, he's captured via monk maneuver self-sacrifice save of the paladin.>They go to find him to see that he's been disarmed.>His arms are hanging on the wall of the room they were interrogating him in.>They put his brain back in and rearm him while fending off guards.>Even after realizing they put his arms on wrong, he dashes out and crits a guard, thereby doing a spinning punch by auto-calibrating his new systems. While he wasn't a huge impact on combat (because monk) he was still a ton of fun to have around.No one got the reference until I explained it after the game either.
other favorite moment:>be warforged with stupid high str >pretty much do whatever teammates tell me>see suspicious house"hey bronzhand, go smash that door in">k>get running start>natural 20>door explodes into home smashing people flat>proceed to kill EVERYONE in the house by myself>make soup in gore-ridden room for my teammates>gotta make sure they eat right
Is the backstory of "created by loving craftsman and treated like the son he never had who dies of old age and tells you to go out and live your own life" still good?>captcha: son peoffejoI swear this thing is sentient
>>30404058I'm wanting to make a war forged similar to that. Basically he gets an item with permancy ant haul, is a barbarian, mule straps, masterwork backprack (frame at that point). And all sorts of just str boosing things.Then dabble a bit of knowledge engineering and dungineering and enjoy the lulz.Hmm so we are being attacked?Dm-yes by cultists in a church.>Well then I roll to check the structural integrity of the church for weakpoints.>dm's face when i push those weakpoints and smile (partially because even if he buried me under rubble (damage dealing) i could still get out).
>>30403315Heh. That's a nice trick with the wording there.
>>30404424Yeah, I just realized that it sounds like he punches retards.
>>30404593That sounds like Jasperodus except of course he hated his parents.
>>30404830I was thinking more Pinocchio.Only as a man-sized robot that butchers all in his way
This is my Cutter my warforged, a respected jeweler of Sharn by day and the vigilante only known as The Iron Fist by night; No criminal, hire thug, extortioner or gang is beyond his reach.
>>30400988I've been wanting to play a Warforged Druid as a bear. Maybe I should make it a gorilla instead. I also recognize your swarm druid story and love it every time I read it.
>>304026874e, they have to enter a 4 hour state of 'inactivity', but remain 100% aware of their surroundings. Though considering an extended rest (6 hours normally, 4 for 'forged, elves, etc.) fully restores your health and Healing Surges, it's left up to interpretation on what constitutes inactivity.I usually fluff it as the warforged taking some time to repair any wear and tear, so the reason they aren't spending those four hours doing something else is because they're preoccupied with maintenance.Though extended rests aren't mandatory, so if you're fine with not getting the benefits you CAN spend that time doing something else. Plus, since their inactivity is only 4 hours long and they'll probably be traveling with humans/dwarves/etc., they do get two hours to do whatever they want while waiting for the fleshbags to wake up.

>>30411938There's a thread on Liches running elsewhere, they'd probably have a better answer.

>>30411944Isn't 40 of any ability in the deity range?
>>30411944So would a half-golem Warforged be, like, a double golem? Or would it be a 3 halves golem?Could you make a double golem by making a golem out of Warforged?

>>30412103Pretty sure, yeah. On top of that, he started going up in War Hulk, which gives +2 str per level, and we actually sent a good amount of time questing just for items to bum it up. By level 20 he had 120>>304121473.5>>30412131Its more like 3/4ths golem I think, thats how I played him, a golsm with slightly more self preservation.>>30412199Just a heads up, you will need crazy good rolls, because wile you do get a +22 to str, you also get a -16 to cha and a -12 to int, as well as some minor penalties to wis and dex.

>>30396641I couldn't stop laughing. I'm sorry, but goddamn that was stupid. There's enough cheese there to start a business. There's enough corn there to feed the entire McDonald's cattle herd. I think one of the other reasons I don't really like it is that there just seems to be no reason at all for this warforged to be grudgingly going up to death's door, demanding that he change the laws of nature for him, and when he says no he decides to raise hell on Earth.Like, I don't see how that passage of thought makes sense at all. >friends die>go to death's house>sup death gimme friends>uh, no robot, life doesn't work that way>fuck you yes it does>but->FUCK YOU YES IT DOES>but my domain->FUCK YOU.

>>30412802You got a problem with Magical Warforged Lyrical Nanoha?
I feel like whenever you share these special stories, they get a little less special each time you tell them. But just for you guys, since it seems appropriate to the thread, I'll tell you my tale. >>Friend of mine is DM. Says I always play Dwarves. Try something else for once. >>I flip through the Races, I don't play gaem very often, so I don't really know as much about the races as I should. >>Can't decide on something, but don't want to be a dick and just say "IM A DORF DEEL WITH IT FAGET">>Pick Warforged because at least then I'll have some decent stats to start with>>Realise I have no goddamn idea what I'm doing>>Go Wizard because fuck it, why not try something entirely new to humanity, not just me>>Friend looks at my sheet, and re-reads the Race/Class lines about six times, before looking up at me with a mix of doubt, confusion, and mild lust before deciding he want's to see where I'm going with this shit>>Friend has a good point he always makes, that when you make a character, you have to decide on a motivation, and tell the group, and he's that special breed that gives you a little bonus now and then for following that motivation. >>Anon why are you a Warforged Wizard. >>Decide that as a babby Warforged I watched mommy Warforged and daddy Warforged fighting all the time, and didn't like it. They were monsters in my eyes. I wasn't afraid of fighting, I wanted to be a hero. I have a dream. I want to be a hero, and I want to fly. >>Table is unsure, and looks to DM for their reassurance. It is not quick in coming.>>Tell DM I will fuck about in the books, Eberron etc, as long as it takes until I prove it's do-able. And even if it's not, what's wrong with a dream that will never happen? A tragic character is just as thought provoking as Hithard McBeefsmash.>>DM decides I have at least put some thought into my character, and agrees.
>>30413382>>We start off in somefucksville, where they buy, sell, and trade in pigshit and incest. >>Immediately, I start to develop a plan for my character. >>While the party is helping rid the town of some midnight thief, which may or may not just be a higher level rogue, I speak up when we're sitting at a table with the Town's leader.>>"Why would he steal from poor people? If everyone's as poor as it seems around here, I think the only person worth robbing, and the only person who would give a shit around here, is you.">>Seeing as this is the first meaningful thing my character has said in hours, the table is once again stunned, and my character is swiftly gaining a reputation for being quiet, but when he speaks, you listen. >>This spirals out of control as the Town Leader gets increasingly butthurt at my innocent accusations, all the while, the DM is starting to like my suggestion. We're asked to roll, and it seems like I might be right. At the very least, I've got the guy flustered. >>(He and I both have a more fluid method of story generation. We don't show up with pre prepared books, instead a list of ideas, rough directions we want the story to go, stuff we can change on the fly.)>>I get kicked out of super special meeting, to no surprise, but once the party leaves, it turns out the guy is just as corrupt as it seems, and we decide to go find the masked Thief, but we plan to help them if they can convince us their cause is as just as I assumed.
>>30413407>>Long story short, that leads to us becoming bandits with the plucky theif by our side. We hide from the authorities wherever we can, fight them if we can't. Essentially we have fun and steal from the rich, give to the poor. >>Eventually, a darker threat emerges, and turns out some necromancer wants to be a Lich. >>My character is a joyfully innocent robot, who will occasionally say something brutally naive, which leads to antics. >>When sneaking into Necromancer's lair, and trying to bluff our way past the guard, it's not going well and he's reaching for something. >>"If we weren't the right people, would we really be trying to walk in the front door?" >>He thinks for a moment and lets us in. Party can't believe our luck. >>While we're sitting in on their super secret church meeting, turns out the Necromancer soon-to-be Lich has a plan. >>Ancient artifact which is basically a DnD version of a magic cruise missile, they're gonna go find it and launch it at big-city-of-nice-people-stan, kill everyone, raise the dead, have a party>>We being the good fight-for-right rebels without a cause goody two shows bandits we are, decide we are the only ones capable of stopping them in time. By the time we got to the city, they'd be up on the cliff firing the damn thing. >>Necro intends to ascend to Lich status by using the power of artifact, yadda yadda you know the drill
>>30413430>>At this point, my robot has become the lovable idiot. While everyone else has lost a character, somehow my wizard survived. >>Final battle ensues. We have tagged along to the location, but the Necromancer knew we were spies the whole time! He just wanted us to witness the destruction before he killed us, and made us into skellingtons. >>At this point I am moderately powerful wizard. Blast all my shooty spells, and start using what little I have left prepared. >>Beefy warrior is dying, sorceress is dead, other warrior is beating things with a shield. >>All of a sudden, we realise we were on a timer, and we've run out of time. >>Necromancer cackles as he creates his phylacetry and ascends to Lich status. Beefy warrior 2 charges but Lich just levitates. >>He launches the artifact. All of the Lich's cronies just stand and watch in awe. >>Everyone is quiet. Warrior is on his knees in front of me. I place a hand on his shoulder and speak to him softly. >>"You stay... I go... No following.">>Last time I leveled up, I got access to the spell I wanted, and told no one. >>Cast fly.

>>30413456I didn't sign up for this shit.
>>30414132I think you did a better job than me anyway
>>30413456why did i start out laughing, then my eyes watered and now im just crying
>>30413456stop it. don't you dare. stop that right now.
>>30413382>they get a little less special each time you tell themWE SHALL SHARE IN YOUR PAIN, AS WE SHARE IN YOUR TRIUMPHYOU HAVE DONE /tg/ A GREAT SERVICE THIS DAY, CHILD OF MAN. YOU SHALL NOT BE FORGOTTEN.
>>30396495Tomb-Tainted Soul. Negative energy now heals you with no mitigation, as does repair spells, and positive energy deals half damage.
>>30397692Warforged Warforged Paragon 3/Warforged Fighter 2/Warforged Cleric 1/Warforged Paladin 1/Warforged Juggernaut 10/Warmage 3.
>>30414435I don't think Warforged Paragon is a thing outside of homebrew.
>>30413456Nice try. Didn't get me to cry. ;_;
>>30413456i didn't ask to feel today
>>30414481Why is that?I assumed any race could be a paladin.
>>30414571My apologies. I blame this tiny screen.
>>30403540One-size-smaller spiked flail.
>>30413407>We start off in somefucksville, where they buy, sell, and trade in pigshit and incest.You or your GM is a genius. I need to write this down somewhere
>>30414683Not him, but I've always found insulting descriptions of things to be sorta easy, plus they're a shitton of fun
>>30414921Tbh, I've done it a few times before with stuff my GM has named in such a stupid way that I just can't remember it (I've already told him this).It's just... that one sentence sums up low level starting villages up so incredibly well, it's pure genius.
>>30398372"I have no mouth but I must scream"
>>30414481I remember seeing an official-looking one somewhere.
>>30394323if the dm let you pull that off, he wasnt railroading
>>30413456How would one go about making the Iron Giant as a random encounter for a campaign.
>>30415097Giant sized Warforged Warrior. Give him some magic.
>>30392625What if they never spoke, but they were constantly getting up to hijinks?
>>30414961Dealing with higher classes is even more fun. You've got all those faggot-ass ass-kissers in the court of some asshat king with more gold than sense because the members of his court who aren't' limp-dicked faggots are traitorous motherfuckers with their eyes on the throne. This ain't even getting into how heavily inbred that asshat king is, or how many types of fucking syphilis he has because his gold that he gets from the pig-shit farming inbred peasants goes to +1 golden dildos or something equally inane and wasteful. Then that asshat wants you to do something like he thinks you want to even touch the gold that has passed through his semen encrusted hands, but it doesn't matter because you'll take the quest anyways because those poor peasants suffer more if you don't and going to the not civ over just leads to slightly different peasants with slightly different problems and a slightly different king and the only real difference you can tell is the fucking flags have different cocks on them.
>>30413456Fuckin knew exactly what this was going to be as soon as I started reading but I cried anyway
>>30413456I don't know you anon. But whoever you are. Wherever you are. I love you.
>>30413456This story is going to be told for generations. Go forth and tell your children of the day the Warforged Iron Giant saved us all.
Some dudes archived it.He shall forever be my Bro
>>30413456The most glorious greentext story I've ever read.
>>30404744Ironhide the Stupefier
>>30413456Today I learned that sometimes Anon isn't just a faggot. Today, Anon was my fucking hero. Never forget the Warforged Iron Giant.
>>30413456he finally got his wish...
>>30415403never forget ;_;
>>30415358Hope I didn't miss any tags.
>>3041345612/10 made me believe in humanity again
>>30413456I've been sitting here staring at my screen for like 20 minutes. This made my fucking dick move it was so beautiful.
>>30396425I personally wouldn't allow thatyou need a soul to sell in order to get warlock powers
updated for eternal glory
>>30415882Warforged have souls.
>>30415882>>suggesting warforged don't have a soulmay I direct your attention to this>>30413456
confirmed for best thread 2014 awards
>>30415501Someone, please record this amazing story on 1d4chan. Then post it everywhereNever Forget!
>>30416133I feel like the thread is now dead, seeing as we can't go anywhere from here now.
>>30416299Then all we do is wait for the wikipage to be filled....Unless we can somehow derail this thread to coming up with our own warforged player ideas for the future.OP, may we have your permission for this undertaking?
>>30416484I call dibs on playing a Warforged necromancer with aspirations of lichdom (regardless of whether they will be realized or not)
I am furnished with an interesting idea.A Warforged Broodmaster Summoner. The main concept is that he is in denial of his unnatural existence and uses his Eidolans to create his own family to fill the void of loneliness in his hear
>>30416484Warforged Artificer specializing in grafts, enjoys modifying himself and others, seeks to create the ultimate golem.
>>30416731Warforged that has a pet artificer, constantly gets BUFFFF
>>30416768And souls don't die.
>>30416768All sane people know that they have souls.All who believe otherwise are evil abominations who live off of puppy hearts
>>30416731Also he will refer to said abomination as his "son" and treat it as such. His ultimate goal is to give said golem an artificial soul.
>>30416903Why is Doctor Light committing suicidesurely Mega Man doesn't need to kill him
>>30416903Sauce?This looks feel worthy.
>>30416926Because otherwise he wouldn't have free will and Agents of Atlas wouldn't be a thing.And Agents of Atlas is bitchin'.
>>30416999;_; noooo Dr. Light.....
>>30416984Agents of Atlas, definitely in my top ten favorite comics. You can find a torrent pretty easy.
>>30416903What about a Warforged who is fighting for the liberation of oppressed golems, but can't understand that golems aren't intelligent enough to function independently like they are?
>>30417137You mean like that one episode of "My Life as a Teenage Robot" where Jenny frees all of Disney World's robots?
>>30417081That was a good series. Not sure about how they handled Yellow Claw in the end. Granted, he has to be something more that a generic yellow menace villain in the end, I'm just not sure if they actually took it in the right direction.
>>30417325I just realized that "the villain ended up being an okay guy" is a lot better than turn most early and pre-silver age characters get. They usually instead get "and he turned into a dick and we had to punch him to death." So I guess I can't be too disappointed
>>30417216.....XJ-9 based Warforged........do want.someone make this a thing
>>30417325You know there were another two minis, right? Plus a couple of crossovers with the X-Men and the Avengers.Also, I think you mean Golden Claw
>>30417081>>30417216and now the thread has gone to /co/
>>30413456this should really be put in 1d4chan
>>30413456Goodnight sweet prince. May flights of badass exploding cyborg angels see you to thy rest.
>>30413456I don't think I've ever seen a post with so much positive response.
Now I want to make a Warforged based off of metal gear risingLET 'ER RIP
>>30413456He never existed. Even the fictional character that this fictional character is based on never existed. And yet they have made me cry harder than I can remember. GOD. FUCKING. SPEED.
My Fellow Neckbeards!!I Put to vote that we Canonize The Iron-Forged as a new Patron Deity of /TG/!!Let us begin to to Draw up the Portfolio of this Metallic Saint and contruct for him a pade on 1d4chan.I shall start the preliminary writing now!!!Owner of the Iron-Forged: I request that you share his name with us, that we may forever enshrine his awesomness as proper!!
>>30389899>share your favorite warforged stories!Once I was in a game with no warforged. That was nice.

>>30420243I would, if I gave enough of a shit to look for it. t's not on netflix, so idgaf.
>>30420550https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgcG5NhzC9AIt's on youtube
>>30398715>If so, I loved Umbrella Academy.Man, that shit was nice. I've still got them in one the attic somewhere. Weird as hell though.
>>30420550Ah, poor baby doesn't know what the adults are talking about. too bad you weren't a kid in the 90s or 80s
>>30420704I know what the iron giant is about, more or less. I just happen to have never seen it. It's probably like E.T. or that Dreamworks dragon movie.But hey, go ahead and keep being an asshole just because you think you're older than me.
>>30420886>hasn't seen ET or Iron gianti pity your childhood
>>30420681Also, thanks very much. i think I'll watch it now.
>>30420931I pity your present if this is how you're gonna act.Seriously, what is it with people and MUH CHILDHOOD?

>>30420269Fersoran, in life, was a warforged created by a wizard as an experiment and as a "helping hand" to cast spells for him. The wizard and his love were in a constant state of arguing. Little did the man know he'd created something with a far larger mind than he'd intended. Fersoran saw this hate, this conflict, and hated it. He never wanted to fight. He only wanted to fly.Fersoran had ventured far with his companions, to destroy a necromancer who was attempting to achieve lichdom. To achieve this goal, he'd created a huge unholy missile, which would deliver a necromantic apocalypse. His companions had failed to defeat the wizard. Fersoran used his magic to fly up, and intercept the missile, killing him in the process. Fersoran became of the Gods for his great act of self sacrifice.
>>30421833I love It. Recorded it and have given you credit. Once I made the 1d4chan page for Fersoran I shall give you proper recognition.
>>30422023*make. Sorry for the improper grammar. Its getting pretty late
