    Default Re: The LA-assignment thread: Making monster PCs VI-able


    Everyone's favorite magitech metal men!

    Anyway, I don't think anyone is arguing that baseline warforged are anything other than +0. Living Construct gives some good immunities, and more constitution is always nice, but the innate armor adds a feat tax for basically every class and the racial support isn't amazing.

    Warforged Charger

    The obscure warforged charger is a 4 RHD, large-sized melee bruiser. It gets good (if physical-skewed) stats, free Powerful Charge and Adamantine Body, and the usual warforged immunities.

    However, on account of relatively poor RHD, the complicated logistics that arise from Adamantine Body, and the mental stats which are poor even for a bruiser, +0 LA is fine here.

    Warforged Scout

    Essentially just small-sized warforged. Not great, if I'm being honest: the ability score adjustments are worse than the baseline race's, and don't fit many classes.

    That said, warforged scouts definitely have their niches over the default form, and are fine at +0 LA.

    Have you had enough of unreasonably high LA's and unplayable monsters in 3.5? Then check out the LA-assignment thread! Don't hesitate to give feedback!
