A Sound Of Thunder
Warforged can have unique personality traits though, being constructs they are restricted in some ways. They experience anger, pain, fear and hatred like their human creators though, all warforged are incredibly reserved and pensive hiding an array of emotions behind their metallic face. Their faces were not designed to display facial expressions and so it can seem like they are distant to the conversation. Despite their lack of physical facial expressions they’re not completely without them as their eyes tend to brighten when experiencing strong or specific emotions. Some warforged are incredibly naive and lack introspection however, many others are the opposite and question their existence, wonder if they have souls and ask what becomes of them in the after life. The more intelligent warforged create complex philosophies about what they perceive and learn. Warforged often have little life experience as they spent most of their time assigned to one specific duty, soldiering. If there is one interest all warforged share it is the love of working and many create endless lists of goals and chores. They take pride in their work and work incredibly hard which makes them dislike idleness and failure. Warforged can excel at most tasks having a single-minded efficiency, especially in combat-related roles.
Physical Description: The warforged are made of stone, metal and wood fibres. The core of a warforged is a skeletal frame made of metal and stone with wood fibres acting as a muscular system. Covering the warforged is an outer shell of metal and stone plates. An internal network of tubes run through the warforged’s body, these tubes are filled with a blood like fluid that is designed to lubricate and nourish their systems. Their hands have only two thick fingers and a thumb whilst their feet only have two broad toes. The warforged’s face loosely resembles their human creators though they have a toothless jaw, heavy brow line and are lacking noses and hair. Each warforged has a sigil engraved upon their foreheads. Each of these runes are unique to the warforged giving them a sense of individuality. The warforged have a sexless form and are considered to be mono-gender. The warforged are able to be repaired and modified even themselves giving them an endless possibility to their appearances.
Relations: Newborn warforged come fully formed from “birth,” with rudimentary language and instinctual knowledge of movement. Over the first few months they are extremely adaptable and able to learn new skills, just like children of other races. It is during this period that the majority of warforged were trained in the art of warfare. War and military conditioning create the foundation of warforged personalities, they understand duty, the chain of command and conflict. Due to their bodies more closely resembling males than females warforged prefer to be called “he” than “it”. Some warforged adopt female names though most of their names are straightforward and are related to their job, abilities or rank. Many warforged simply accept the nicknames given to them by their comrades while others seek to earn more meaningful names that best describe them.
Alignment and Religion: Warforged are born with clean slates for minds and are at the mercy of their creator’s tutoring as they have no concept of morality or good and evil. In their infant years they will believe all that is told to them by their creator and will treat what is taught to them as the only truth until proved otherwise. There are warforged that have learned of religion, though few embrace it as many see worshipping a deity to be like working for a master who never gives commands Still a few warforged seek out the meaning of their existence and have turned to religion for answers.
Adventurers: Most warforged were let loose into the world with little direction, but an enormous curiosity. As a result, most have become adventurers in one way or another. Warforged are drawn toward any circumstance that involves mystery, seeking answers yet to be uncovered. Warforged see other adventurers as kindred spirits; the wandering lifestyle and constant discoveries perfectly align with the warforged way of life.
