Does this seem like a reasonable race? PEACH

Warforged Dreadnaught

Type: Construct (Living Construct)

+8 strength, -2 Dexterity, +4 constitution, -2 wisdom, -4 charisma. Dreadnaughts are massive creatures, the size of an ogre or larger and have the strength and resilience to match but they are somewhat clumsy, lacking is social graces and are not the most intuitive of beings.

-2 on all intelligence based skill checks except for knowledge (history, geography, and architecture and engineering) and craft (armorsmithing). -4 on all wisdom based checks other than spot and listen. Though not unintelligent, dreadnaughts are very single minded and pay little attention to matters that do not pertain to conflict.

Large size: as large creatures, dreadnaughts have lifting and carrying limits double those of medium creatures, suffer a -1 size penalty to attacks and AC and use weapons one size category larger than medium creatures.

A dreadnaught's base speed is 40 feet.

Space/reach: A warforged dreadnaught takes up a 10 ft by 10 ft area and has a ten foot reach.

Composite plating: the stone, metal and wood plates that make up a dreadnaught's body provide it with a +4 armor bonus and count as light armor. This takes up the dreadnaught's body slot (preventing it from wearing armor or magic robes) and may be enchanted just like regular armor. In addition, composite plating provides a dreadnaught with a 5% arcane spell failure chance.

Light fortification: a dreadnaught has a 25% chance to negate any critical hit or sneak attack damage that it suffers.

Dreadnaughts have a slam attack that deals 1d6 points of damage.

Warforged: A warforged dreadnaught is considered to be a warforged for adjudicating all effects including prerequisites. Any feat that grants an alteration to a warforged's composite plating have their normal effects but grant the dreadnaught an additional +2 armor bonus to AC.

LA: +2. Note: DMs may reduce this to +1 if the character is going to be a full caster.
