Greetings once again everyone who vies for the Lazy Man’s World Champion Belt! I’m here once again with another Coompendium for the chronically lazy and/or those who wish to clean up their Bookmark bar a tad. Once again, I take little to no credit for all that is within this post and am simply attempting to make navigation slightly easier for certain themes. This Compendium focuses on WARFORGED!! If it has plates and the living construct subtype, expect to see it here. If you don't PM me a link or post it right here and I'll get it up. Without further ado (or a “actually there is more ado” joke) I present the Warforged Compendium!
Additionally, please direct me to more material so I can add it to this Compendium.
Thanks for putting all this together! I have to say I kinda created the Trueforge as a bit of a whim to get back into homebrew after a long exodus. The responce has been awesome and I'm blown away by all the effort people like you put into making this forum such a great smeltingpot of ideas.
I'm just happy to be included tand have my own ideas placed in the same breath as soem other the other great things you have listed here!
-Updated to MarkII!!
-The trueforged is (in my mind) a GREAT segway into a warforged world. Where all the classes and what-not are aimed FOR warforged, as one would expect. I've been sad to not see a full base class aimed for a race, and seeing one so well done (in my opinion) deserved note.
To be honest, Timeforged became something completely different in my mind than the warforged, but I don’t mind creative interpretations.
Beings born from the raw material of the binary star that they will come to live between. They were created by the elder races of Mechanus as a way of combating the coming apocalypse brought by the Mind Flayers. Since Life (under the control of the flayer’s) had reached out to destroy all other forms of life (and this includes machines), the Gods and Goddesses of Mechanus reached out and formed life from the twin stars.
When the mind flayer’s struck back with a time-traveling Psychic Jaunt, the Timeforged countered with a similar approach, travel back to eliminate the flayers before they get a better foothold. However, The miscalculation led them to be all trapped with the planes of existence (most notably the earth beneath the Dwarven Mines and throughout the Underdark.
Naturally if my race ended up in another game with or without my knowledge, I would be honored equally.
Errors fixed, and thank you for those who informed me.
Lord Erebus: When it comes to a reflavor, no thing is sacred. In fact, your Timeforged are essentially what the Warforged are in the campaign I'm playing. All the fluff is near mirrored, makes me wonder if my DM found your race... Yet the stats are still warforged (or a 3.75 approximation) and the feel is of your race. IMO, warforged in their traditional sense, and the timeforged... are a form of cousins. Who's to say one of the Timeforged went WAY back (on accident) and built the creation forges? Anything is possible with time travel.

In my mind they were created in a vast array of Foundry ships, spread out between the binary star system, created by the Gods of Mechanus. They also sent vast ships back with them. The mentioned city called Rift is just one of the City-ships that were sent back.
Rift has the power to begin creating more Timeforged with just solar power if the Timeforged can get running, as well as creating a barrier strong enough to block water pressures and withstand the vacuum of the Dark Tapestry.
Its basically a broken spaceship capable of bringing the Last Great War with the Mind Flayers to an earlier point in History. Given enough time to find and rebuild the foundry ships; the Timeforged could surround the planet in new ships and filling the Underdark with an unlimited force of hunters capable of tracking the Flayers down.
I mention all this to give you ideas with the campaign, as well as for you to add creative ideas to my concept.
Feel free to add my Super Fighting Robot (link in sig) gunslinger archetype to the list. However, it does differ from most other Warforged homebrew for two main reasons:
1. It's actually a racial archetype that's also available to their Android "cousins" as to make it legal for the contest it was created for.
2. The conversion it's based off of is one which actually allows Warforged to wear armor. However, it could be simply reworked to function such that the composite plating was built as the buster armor for campaigns using more traditional armor rules for Warforged.
