The Prince of Undeath
The warforged were constructed many years ago during the height of the Nerath Empire as a response to dire prophecies. They were built to defend the empire in its darkest days and to be the first line of defence against a viscous threat to the whole world.
They were built all over the empire, some as a solitary guardian in a fort, some in a legion under the ground but they all slept awaiting activation by their masters.
Which never came.
The Nerath Empire fell almost 200 years ago and it’s only in the last century that the warforged have awoken themselves to find whats left of the world.
