The stars of Pash-Mara
The warforged were made as the ideal soldiers. Their only goal was to serve in War. But they awakened to be much more than that. After The spiritual awakening they started to abandon their programming as agents of war and make their own way in the world. Although they are constructs, they have much in common with living creatures, including emotions and social bonds, and perhaps even souls. The warforged monks ot the Surakhani Monastary believe that Warforged have souls and are the equals of humans. In their monastary they are trying to discover the essence of sentient existence. But while the warforged where granted the same rights as the other sentient races at the end of the war Against the last undead pharaoh some are still vieuwing them as an allien lifeform they prefered as willess automatons.
Warforged heads have simple humanlike features. They have
heavy brows, hinged toothless jaws, and no noses. A
warforged’s eyes sometimes glow when he or she
experiences certain intense emotions. The forehead of each
warforged bears a unique rune called a ghulra. These ghulra
help give warforged a sense of individuality.
Warforged possess an artificial and relatively sexless
shape. They don’t reproduce like other humanoids. A
warforged can modify its body, adding and removing limbs as
necessary. A warforged feels pain only from real injury. These
physical modifications allow warforged to vary in appearance
as much as any other humanoids.
Warforged can have unique personality traits, though, as
they are constructs, those are restricted in some ways. They
experience anger, pain, fear, and hatred like their human
creators. All warforged naturally seem reserved, stoic, and
pensive, hiding an array of emotions behind their
inexpressive metallic faces. Their faces were not designed to
display facial expressions, 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
have their faces modified to be more expressive for their
companion’s comfort, but these expressions are learned
rather than natural and often appear stilted and awkward.
A New Perspective
Some warforged can be incredibly naive and lack a sense of
introspection. However, many others are the opposite and
question their existence, they wonder if, as constructs, 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. Though warforged can
show loyalty to religions and organizations, typically they
become loyal to a small group of comrades.
Warforged often have little life experience as they have
spent most of their time working towards one specific duty,
usually soldiering. If there is one interest all warforged share
it is their love of working and the satisfaction of a job well
done. Many create endless lists of goals and chores to feed
that feeling. They take pride in their work and can work
incredibly hard, both traits that make them dislike idleness
Warforged can excel at most tasks, having a single-minded
efficiency, especially in combat related roles. But this same
single-mindedness can often translate to a lack of creativity
and they can be easily surprised or “outflanked.”
Because most warforged have bodies that resemble males,
they identify themselves as males and prefer to be called “he”
rather than “it.” Some warforged adopt female names,
though. Most warforged have simple names related to their
jobs , abilities, or military positions. Warforged often accept
the names or the nicknames that their comrades give them,
although some search long for particular names that define
them. Many simply take names common within another race,
especially those of humans.
