    Question Warforged Druids?

    Hey guys
    I've never played an Eberron Pnp campaign and I've been semi planning out some race/class combos for the day Druids come to DDO. What I'm wondering is if there are any class restrictions on Warforged being allowed to be Druids??? The idea of a Warforged being intune with nature is a little out out of touch IMO but there's weirder things in 3.5 so...... anyways I'd love an answer to this and if anyone can toss me any links on Eberron 3.5 rules that too would be great as I can't seem to find any info online.
    thanks

    The organic parts of Warforged are made of livewood. They're practically made of plant matter internally, thus making them even more druidy than your typical fleshling.

    maybe we could get a feat that allows them to be druids, but makes them completely wood

    also would make them fearless against rust monsters, with have no more metal in them...

    To be a warforged druid you would have to take the Ironwood body feat, replaces the metal so you can cast druid spells, or the Unarmored body feat, you can wear robes and such like you were a fleshy.

    The default Composite Body is also non-metallic.

    Isn't it a composite of steel and wood? Certainly not fibreglass and epoxy.

    BEDEMIR: Quiet, quiet. Quiet! There are ways of telling whether
    she is a druid
    CROWD: Are there? What are they?
    BEDEMIR: Tell me, what do you do with druids?
    VILLAGER #2: Burn!
    CROWD: Burn, burn them up!
    BEDEMIR: And what do you burn apart from druids?
    VILLAGER #1: More druids!
    VILLAGER #2: Wood!
    BEDEMIR: So, why do druids burn?
    [pause]
    VILLAGER #3: B--... 'cause they're made of wood...?
    BEDEMIR: Good!

    Maybe? Perhaps WF druids float on water?

    thank you. not only was that an interesting read, but i now want to see this in game.
    The only option for a warforged who wants improved armor and the full power of the druid is the Ironwood Body feat presented in Races of Eberron.

    Afaik, WF can become druids, unless they have the feats 'Mithral body' or 'Adamantine body'.

    I read somewhere ('Races of Eberron' 3.5 ?) arguments about why a WF druid isn't such a bad idea.

    At the moment, I'm playing one in a home campaign, and it's really FUN !

    (Ok, not only because of the druid part, but also because he's dumb as a rock and thinks everybody is nice and friendly ).

    It's more plausible than a WF sorc...
    With druid you at least have the wood.
    With sorc you are still hard pressed to find that dragon blood.

    Well it's still possible a WF could be partially made of dragon scales/bones/skin...

    Dragon blood is not a requirement to be a sorcerer. It is only ONE possible source of power. Read the wording in the source books more carefully, nowhere does it say that sorcerers necessarily have dragon blood, or anything blood for that matter.

    From the Player's Handbook:
    Some sorcerers claim that the blood of dragons courses through their veins.
    For those who missed it, "some sorcerers claim" is a far stretch from "is so for all sorcerers".

    If that weren't clear enough, it goes on thus:
    Still, the claim that sorcerers are partially draconic is either an unsubstantiated boast on the part of certain sorcerers or envious gossip on the part of those who lack the sorcerer’s gift.

    I suggestde to a friend how was neutrel evil and wanted to become a sorc to f9ind a baby dragon and pour the blood over himself. He said that is a wonderful idea and then reasoned more blood = more power and did it with every dragon he met in the rest of the campaign.
    If beauty is in the eye of the beholder which eye is that?
    I demand you nerf this post. I was the first person to enter the chronoscope quest on cannith. And died in 10 mins when the whole party finally got in. Profesional Necrobumper.
