The Warforged (5e) 5th Edition D&D Races

The Warforged (5e) 5th Edition D&D Races

Since the 5the edition of Dungeons and Dragons was released, the players had regularly demanded the Warforged as a popular racial option. Warforged is one of many races from the Dungeons and Dragons world of Eberron: Rising from the Last War. These races include Kalastar, Changelings, Shifters, and infamous Warforged. Warforged was a novel and exciting idea of creating magical robots created ages ago. Originally, they were golems with the ability to learn and get aware of the battlefield.

Imagine you could build a robot that shortly becomes aware of the battlefield and react accordingly, who can fight against your enemies and save the lives of your army. Well, we’re getting closer to this technology in the real world, but until then we can at least have it in our RPG games. However, if that awareness of the convert them into a soul who’s not interested in war anymore? Well, if this happens, then the robots ill refuse to fight and go away to live a happy life. Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition featured a new race of the World of Eberron “The Warforged”.

What is Warforged?

Meant to fight the last war, the first Warforged were built as the mindless automatons to fight against the enemies of House Cannith on the battlefield and save thousands of lives. But they kept on improving these steel soldiers and devoting vast resources, as a result, their consciousness changed into souls, and the soul conflicts with the desire to live. They were made of wood and metals, but still, they can feel pain and emotions.

When Warforged found that dying in a pointless conflict is stupid, they stood against their masters and fled the battlefield. So, these steel soldiers are now living a peaceful life away from the conflict of death. However, their body remains the same, the steel soldiers well known for their war powers, size, and single mind focus. You can make Warforged either a fearsome enemy or a powerful ally.

Warforged Personality

Warforged created to fight the Last war and fulfill the purpose of their masters with superiority. They experience fear, hatred, anger, pain, and happiness the same as we humans do. As they naturally seem to be reserved and pensive, Warforged hides their feeling behind their dull faces. They always appear distant in conversation as they were not designed to show any facial expression. But that doesn’t mean they are complete without expressions.

When Warforged experience specific or strong emotions, their eye become brighter than usual. Moreover, they’re continuously modifying their faces so that they can be more expressive and their companions feel comfortable talking with them. As the Warforged spent most of their time working for one specific goal, they don’t have much experience in the real world. However, they make their goals and can work extremely hard as military thinking is the foundation of their personalities.

DnD Warforged Relations

They simultaneously struggle to seek out ways to relate to the races that created them because the Warforged tries to seek out an area in society for themselves after the last war. In Karrnath and Thrane, Warforged were seen because of the property of military forces. Most of the Warforged in those nations function slave labor.

Therefore, Goliath is on a premium place of individual skills and self-sufficiency.

Also, they love to win and sometimes intentionally see their defeat as a prod to improve their skills. However, this dedication of comparison has a Darkside which makes them a brutal competitor. Few Goliath reached old ages die attempting for surpassing their past achievements as an adventurer.

Goliaths think that fair competition only exists if it is accompanied by a level player. The survival in their home territory is measured by the dedication, efforts, and the talent shown in the playing field. In the case of goliaths, the relationship between the noble and peasants puzzles them as the most talented person takes the throne if the king lacks in intelligence.

Maes has hairs only on their limbs, while the females have dark long hairs which they kept braided always. As their skin mottling culture signifies, they prefer light dresses.

Survival of the Fittest

Any adult Goliath, who’s not able to contribute to the tribe is expelled and has a little chance of survival. However, they feel pity for the old and adults who can’t take care of themselves. As a result of fair play, they treat the sick and injured ones. However, he or she is expected to pull his or her weight in the tribe. But these Goliaths typically dies in attempting to keep up, or walk away in the night to seek their cold will of fate. They are a risk-taking race and because of that, their tribes face a lack of experience offered by the old leaders.

In some ways, the goliaths try to outdo themselves and escape from the grimness inevitability of their death. A goliath would happily die on the battlefield, at the height of strength and skill, then enduring a slow decay of adulthood. They hope for innate wisdom in their leadership, for they will rarely calculate wisdom grown with age.

But after some time, a Kenku managed to steal the king’s speech and the language, resulting in the formation of a new species(which we see at present).

When the king got to know about this treason, he put them in prison and ordered to cut oof their wings, so that the Kenku’s would always beg and stay under him.

They can also fly but up to a limited distance and height.

They have a characteristic that every Kenku goes through, they fly as soon as they were born and some of them even unf=dergo training and learn how they can fly high. The Kenku don’t have wings, but still, they like to reach on tall structures. In addition, they lack motivation and innovation. So, they’re unable to create heavy-duty machines or advance weapons to defend and grow their society. As Kenku’s are small, they can easily hide anywhere in small areas and disguise their enemy.

The Tabaxi – Lions, Tigers, and Catfolks

Hailing from the strange distant land, the wandering Tabaxi of the Dungeons and Dragons is the catlike humanoids. Driven by the curiosity to collect the interesting stories, tales, and the interesting artifacts, the Tabaxi constantly roam around the world and lay their eyes on all the wonders of the world. Tabaxi never stays in one place for a long time. Uncovered secrets from their inmate nature, Tabaxi let things to leave without losing their treasure or legends.

Tabaxi range from lion-Esque noble felines to mangy stray pickpockets and everything in between. Tabaxi can bring some wonderfully flavorful and fun characters, so let’s take these cats out of the bag and undergo everything you would like to understand.

Tabaxi Culture

The Tabaxi always comes from somewhere whenever your adventures take place. Visiting here and now out of curiosity, Tabaxi is meant to be the wanderers roaming in a wanderlust. In their distant homeland, the life of Tabaxi is simple and tribalistic where they are content with the cat lord, and patron deity. Their God named “The Cat Lord” belled them with the curious nature to explore the world. Tabaxies are essentially driven by curiosity, they go wherever it takes them.

Although Tabaxi appreciates trinkets and gold, they are really after the stories. That’s why the story of the daring dungeon delving is more important than actual treasure at the end of dungeons. Now, this is where the chaotic nature of Tabaxi comes in, they can be ready for anything if they think it will make any exciting adventure.

Tabaxi comes in different forms, there are several character options with easy introduction and campaign settings. They have temporary but strong obsession which could easily line up with the next leg of the adventure. If you’re stuck in a situation where you fight with the demon lords, then Tabaxi’s character is ready to save you. If your adventure is about recovering a long-lost curiosity, then try Tabaxi’s greatest obsession.

Tabaxi Traits

  1. Ability Score Increase: your dexterity score can be increased by 2 and the charisma score can be increased by 1.
  2. Age: As humans grow in stages during their lifespans, Tabaxi’s are also the same. They both have an equivalent lifespan.
  3. Alignment: Tabaxi usually tend towards a chaotic alignment, they rarely get evil.
  4. Cat’s Claws: You can use your claws as a weapon by making unarmed strikes. Your claws enable you to climb at a speed of 20 feet without any difficulty. Also, if you hit your opponent with those weapons then you can easily give damage of about 14d plus your strength which is normal for an unarmed strike.
  5. Cat’s Talent: In addition to claws, you are also proficient in stealth and perception skills.
  6. Darkvision: When the sun goes down, your cat’s special senses get activated. This feature makes you capable enough to see any object within 60 ft of you in darkness. However, you can only see the object in shades of gray instead of normal colors.
  7. Feline agility: With the help of reflexes and agility, you can move at the double speed until the end of your turn. It happens when you move on your turn in combat and you can’t use it twice. However, if you won’t move a single foot on one of your turns, then you could go for another speed burst.
  8. Speed: 30 feet per second is your base speed.
  9. Size: The Tabaxi on average is about 6 to 7 feet tall and relatively slender than us humans.
  10. Language: You can read, write, and speak your native language and another language of your choice.

With the help of traits listed above, you can easily beat others in the 5th edition of the Dungeons and Dragons.

Appearance

Taxes were generically described as similar to the cat folks. But everything related to a wide definition of ‘cats’, you can easily modify your character depending on your needs. Many animals like the panthers, Lions, tigers, cheetahs, leopards, housecats, bobcats, pumas, and jaguar-esque are related to your character which you can use in any way.

With 90% of finished ideas, the 5th edition templates left all the customization options for your fun. You can change the color of your fur, the length of your whiskers, do you want to be well-groomed or not, length of your tail, eyes color, and size, fluffy or poofed up, and other traits beyond the cats.

Pop Culture Comparisons

There are many characters outside DnD(dungeons and dragons) with similar traits which you can take help from. Some of them are listed below:

Neko or Catgirls from different Animes

Neko folks can be defined by catlike ears and tails, whiskers, paws, and very light feline features as compared to the Tabaxi. If you want to introduce your Tabaxi character from Neko’s direction, then you need to talk to your DM(Dungeon Master). The reason behind this is that the Nekos are different from the Tabaxi at an aesthetic level.

Thundercats

When it comes to building a Tabaxi character, the Thundercats aren’t far away from the mask, particularly if you look at 2011 rather than the original. The only thing that’s missing is the face, while Tabaxies are feline but Thundercats are practically human. If you want to challenge the Mumm-Ra of 5e campaign, then the Tabaxi race can easily defeat them.

Khajiit – Elder Scrolls

Khajiit is a pretty good concept for Tabaxi characters as the Khajiithas wares if you have coins. Instead of curiosity and wanderlust, The Khajiit is similar to the Tabaxi with only a little bit of difference in thievery. Also, they have fur patterns similar to that of Lynx or a Bobcat. So, Tabaxi is a great opportunity to play Khajiit if you always wanted to play it.

Tabaxi Names

Chosen by their clan, Tabaxi has a single gender-neutral name based on several factors like the astrology and prophecy. They typically use a short descriptive sentence and utilize a shorter nickname derived from it. So, think about both of these conditions before naming your new Tabaxi character. Also, remember that your player will only know your character by the nickname.

They also have their clan name that basically represents the geographical features of their home territory. Some of the Tabaxi nicknames are listed below:

Tabaxi Names: Crescent Moon – Moon, Scratch of Wood(Wood), Single Drop(Single), Fire in the Distance(Fire), Three Coil(Coil), Game of Chance(Game), Gift of a Guest(Gift), Wave of the Share(Wave), and Lost Guide(Lost).

Tabaxi Clans: Anchored Glade, Tranquil Bayou, Echoing Mountain, Grieving Fields, Mumbling Morass, Tranquil Bayou, Angelic Ridge, Twisting Fjords, and Weeping Cave.

So, I hope you got to know about the Dungeons and Dragon 5the edition character “The Tabaxi”. It is one of the best characters in DnD as it has so many traits and pop culture characters that you can use to enhance the look of your catfolk. You can also align it with a good background like the Folk Hero background or the Gladiator’s Background give it more powers.

In the game, you are only allowed to get the Feats when you reach level 4. Most classes can use Feats from levels 4, 8, 12, 16 or perhaps 19 depending on the ability score increase. In addition, Feats can be found in ‘The Players Handbook’ and ‘Xanathars Guide to Everything’.

Choosing a Feat

Before choosing a Feat, you need to have the obligatory requirements that the Feat desires. If you do not attain the requirement of any respective Feat you want to use, you will be unable to use that particular Feat in the gameplay.

For instance, some Feat may require you to have a certain amount of strength level. If you have less than that amount of strength level, you will thereby not be able to use that particular Feat.

Whilst choosing a Feat, you have to ensure that your Dungeon Master gives you permission, as it is an optional feature in the D&D 5e. Also, you will have to keep in mind that you are allowed to choose a Feat only once at a particular time in the gameplay.

Moreover, your class tends to guide you when you reach certain levels. D&D has a feature of the “Ability Score Improvement” where it allows your class to support you with using the optional Feat rule. This allows you to use your preferred Feat instead of the ability score improvement.

However, in the D&D 5e, Feats are not a crucial feature as it used to be in the previous editions. It is an optional feature that can be used to upgrade your character at a major or minor level. Therefore, in the gameplay, you have to choose amidst using an ability score improvement or a Feat.
