Fluff Edit

"It has been nearly ten years since I woke from the swirling mists of nothingness. I remember almost nothing of that time... if you can even call it time. I remember the darkness. I remember feeling... nothing. I would rather face a torment of agony for a thousand years than have to endure another five minutes of nothingness. I may have a metal body, but my mind is still mine. I existed before, though I know not who I was. I stepped from out of the forge with a new life to live. I have a new purpose in life and will stop at nothing to accomplish it. If I am dismantled in the process, so be it.

Like most of my kind, I was confused and a little scared when I awoke for the first time. No memories. No family or friends. Only an innate sense of duty, and a deep feeling of purpose. Only problem with that feeling of purpose is that you don't have a concrete goal. Perhaps finding that goal and pursuing it to it's conclusion is the whole point of our existence as Warforged. Perhaps not.

After awaking, I joined the city guard. With only a week of existence, I had more skill with armor and blades than most do after years of service. My blade was comfortable in my large hands and my shield felt as if only an extension of my arm. Yet something was missing. Something inside told me that there was something else I was supposed to be doing. I felt a calling outside of the city. I felt a connection to something deep within the earth. After only six years of serving with the city guard, I turned in my resignation and I left the city. I traveled more miles than I could count or even have a concept for. I walked when I could, rode boats when I had to, and swam when I couldn't find a boat. All told, my journey took me three years of traveling through blistering sands, sheer mountains, and unsettled oceans. My journey taught me a lot about the land and it's creatures. I truly feel that I know more about the natural parts of the world than I do about the people that inhabit it. I plan to change that.

My long journey showed me just how tough I am and what I could accomplish. It also showed me what I truly am. I am an embodiment of nature itself. The earth speaks to me and speaks through me when I am fulfilling my purpose. That purpose is to protect the world from those who would harm it. The world cries out for a champion to defend it. I will heed its' call."


Background Edit

Occupation - Military: (From PHB 2) You served in a military organization, such as an army or a city guard. Were you conscripted, or did you volunteer? What was your rank? How did you leave the service? If you haven't left, describe the circumstances under which you still serve while also adventuring.
Background Benefit: +2 to Endurance

Appearance Edit

Age: 9 years
Gender: Male
Height: 6'6"
Weight: 300 lbs.
Alignment: Unaligned
Physical Description: Crag is tall, even for most warforged. At six and a half feet tall, he tops the normal charts for his race. Sure there are a few out there that are taller, but not many. Unlike others of his race, however, his outer chassis seems to be made, not from traditional smelted steel or iron, but rather, it seems to be fashioned out of unrefined ore, or that perhaps during the smelting process, rocks of the type commonly found with iron ore were thrown in with the metal. This gives him a rough and almost geologically natural look, dark and dusty, like he were roughly carved out of the side of an iron mine instead of smelted piece by piece. The glowing rune so commonly found on the forehead of a warforged is instead replaced by a series of circular rings made from black volcanic glass and dark green emerald, broken up by swirling shapes in silver.

Hooks Edit

  • Spirits of the Earth: Sometimes the spirits of the earth speak to Crag (at least he thinks so). Sometimes it's to teach, others to preach, but sometimes they need him to do things.

Kicker Edit

  • Miraculous Manufacturing: Crag is different than most other warforged. Why does he not have a glowing rune upon his brow like the others? Why is he not made of smooth steel? Crag seeks an answer to this question and anyone who says they may know why is someone to listen to!
  • After his first run-in with the hyena-like Gnolls, Crag has found himself with a curious thing...a feeling of hatred. Never before had he felt anything but a cold, calm connection to the earth. Never any emotion so strong as hatred. Now he wonders if any other situations will cause him to feel such emotions again and if it will only come from facing gnolls, or if it has to do with something else. Only time will tell!

Changes Edit

Taking advantage of the "redo" rules that allows you to well...redo all of your mechanics one time before (or as) you get to level 2, I have had Crag switch out a couple of powers that I thought weren't working for him. Here are my changes:

  • Changed Thorn Strike to Earth Shield Strike.
  • Changed Earth Spikes to Hungry Earth (I realized that the extra damage was...okay, but I'm not there to deal damage... I'm there to keep badguys on me and away from my friends. This should help)
  • Changed Form of the Willow Sentinel to Form of Winter's Herald. (This should REALLY make my warden "sticky". Exactly what he's been lacking!)
  • Made level 2 updates and added treasure from Fire and Ice.

  • Level 3 changes:
    • Retraining: Changed Hungry Earth to Roots of Stone (Primal Power)
    • Made level 3 updates and added treasure from A Simple Errand
