In response to the Grey Elves lack of warriors, they have perfected the art of creating sentient golems called “Warforged.” These Warforged stand in eternal vigilance over the elven isles, daring a human foolish enough to tempt his fate. Many powerful elves have taken to having Warforged as personal body guards, their martial abilities unmatched by many made of flesh and blood.
They grow more and more “sentient” as they progress through the ages, learning and questioning their lot in life. They are never mistreated by the Elves, but sometimes choose to leave the Elven isles in order to experience more of the world, and find their place. The Elves never interfere, knowing that this is simply an evolution of their natural spirit, something that can never be quelled.
