Q: Dear Sage,
What would happen to a warforged who wanders into an antimagic field? Paralysis? Instant Death?
A: Vlad, the Sage can’t help but wonder if a warforged has been kicking your cat or stealing your newspaper—it’s a pretty big leap from antimagic field to instant death.
Sorry to disappoint you, but an antimagic field doesn’t have any special effect on a warforged. Any magical effects on the warforged (active spells, magic items, etc.) would be suppressed as normal, but he’d still remain fully functional.
About the Author
The Sage is a mammal classified in the bear family, Ursidae, native to central and southern China. Debate continues as to whether he is truly a bear or more related to the raccoon rather than the bear, or perhaps in a family of his own. When not eating bamboo and answering rules questions, he works under the nom de plume of Andy Collins as an RPG developer in Wizards of the Coast R&D, where his development credits include Complete Mage, Dragon Magic, and the Player's Handbook v.3.5. He can be easily recognized by his large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, ears and on his rotund body.
