archetypes

primary race

The origin of the Forged is a mystery to many, even themselves. Some are deliberate constructions of material and magic. Others have been formed somehow out of natural circumstance and have simply awoken in their place of birth. Regardless of the circumstances they are all representative of a creature made of a certain material bonded with a living spirit to create a functional living creature. Despite being composed of different materials the Forged requires food, rest, and all other necessaries of any living creature. Forged must wear sufficient makeup/prosthetics/masks so they appear to be made up of non-living matter: metal, stone, gem, or organic material such as wood.
