  • Lord of Blades

The Lord of Blade spoke. New life coursed through your wood-and-metal frame. There in the Creation Forgue you had become bright and glorious and true.

The way they treated your kind had filled you with rage, but no more. You are a beacon and a gleaming fist. You are Bladeforged, answerable only to your honor and your god.

Somewhere nearby you hear fighting. The world is full of fighting. And fighting is what you do best.

  • A Warforged's Composite Plating provides 5% arcane spell failure chance. This plating is not considered natural armor, and it takes the place of body armor.

Feats taken at character creation can upgrade this plating and its type, changing it to either light or heavy armor. See also Mithral Body, Adamantine Body.
