The Half-Forged[edit]

These are humanoids that have been given some "forged" parts.

Creating a Half-Forged[edit]

This template is acquired after a humanoid loses a limb or requires it for some other reason. This can only affect humanoids as any other creatures are either not-able to accept it or are too bizarre to be made for. There are multiple types of Half-Forged:

Full Adaption: This is a creature where the main organs of their body has been put into a forged body.
Head Adaption: This is used to repair severe head trauma.
Torso Adaption: This is a chest plate that is used if they get a hole in their chest or some other major wound. This comes in half and full versions.
Arm Adaption: This is for characters who have lost an arm or a hand.
Leg Adaption: This is for characters that have lost either one or two legs.

The Half-Forged may have any number of these adaptions.

Size and Type[edit]

All types of Half-Forged are the same size as their base race but their type changes to living construct.

  • Vulnerabilities:
    • Spells and effects that only affect constructs also affect living constructs
    • Spells that affect metal like rusting grasp or heat metal deal an additional 2d6 damage to living constructs
  • As living constructs Half-Forged with the Full Adaptation only heal half of the normal amount of hp per day and get only half of the benefit from cure spells. However they gain full benefit from repair damage spells. Half forged with a partial adaptation get the full amount of hp from cure spells and rest but half from repair damage spells

Hit Dice[edit]

Same as the base creature.
