Alchemical WarforgedD&D Insider Article
Winning Races
By Logan Bonner

The magnificent living constructs called warforged demonstrate the ingenuity and skill of the races of the world. Their presence inspires more ingenuity, driving crafters to tinker with the magical and physical details of new warforged they create. The warforged themselves (at least, ones with arcane knowledge) are equally likely to improve themselves, making modifications they believe will best suit them. Those who were created initially with alchemical components might choose not to develop any greater understanding. Others become fascinated with their special modifications and learn about alchemy. Warforged who weren’t created with alchemical components might add them later in their lives, though this poses special risks.

You think I’m less alive because I had no blood at my creation. But I chose to gain it later, and the fact that I must seek the ingredients and mix it myself reminds me how much I should appreciate it. My alchemical blood allows me to better understand and relate to you meat people.
