Hm... well, let's shake things up. Let's say that the Warforged were a more recent edition to the world (say the last 80-100 years). For interest's sake, let's say that the Dwarves were the ones credited to first make the Warforged and that the guy who created Silvanus happened to be a human who was taught by the dwarves. Hence, Silvanus is the third warforged in existence because Silvanus was simply meant to be a prototype, and the first two were really made by the dwarves. However, either warring factions wanting their hands on this fabled superweapon or greedy/envious Dwarves wanted to make sure they were the first to make them, either way Silvanus' creator ended up dead.
Is... that a decent compromise?

I started my first campaign outside of an abandoned mine, just as soon as a meteor storm from the moon hits.
