Echoes of War
A race of “living constructs” created by the The Technic League in Alkenstar, the Warforged were capable of independent thought and action, making them the perfect warriors to fight in The Last War. Alkenstar sold a great number of these constructs to the other nations involved in the Last War, but kept the majority of them for their own use. These Warforged reserves accounted for most of Alkenstar’s victories during the war.
The Technic League created Warforged in massive foundries known as Soulforges. These Soulforges functioned only by inserting a glass-like orb known as a Soul Key. There were 4 of these Soul Keys by the end of the Last War. Per the terms of the Vallows Treaty, the Warforged were deactivated and the remaining Soul Keys were to be kept safe in Vallows Keep. However, only 3 of the Soul Keys made their way to the Keep. The fourth, transported by Allistair Kaine, Cyran, Lucius Lycansoar, and Elzor Nos’Rac, was lost.
