Korla 1: The Conflicts Beneath
Images of Warforged
The warforged were created by the Elders in structures called creation forges. They were built to be the Elders’ footsoldiers, but after the Cataclysm they were freed from their servitude. According to legend, some warforged from the days of the Elders still exist and have created a haven for their kind at the site of an operational creation forge. This is probably just wistful talk on the part of Durshkalan warforged who suffer prejudice and often servitude.
Almost all warforged in Durshkal were produced in the city-state of Forgehome, which grew up around a (mostly) functional creation forge. Much of Forgehome’s economy revolves around manufacturing warforged to sell into slavery or lease as mercenaries.
Warforged construction makes them very durable and physically capable.
