Tool Expertise
Starting at 3rd level, your proficiency bonus is doubled for any ability check you make that uses
your proficiency with a tool.

Tools of the Trade (Battle Smith)
By the time you adopt this specialty at 3rd level, you’re deeply familiar with employing its tools.
Proficiencies. You gain proficiency with leatherworker’s tools and smith’s tools, assuming you don’t already have them. You also gain leatherworker’s tools and smith’s tools for free—the result of tinkering you’ve done as you’ve prepared for this specialization.
Crafting. If you craft a magic item in the armor category, it takes you a quarter of the normal time, and it costs you half as much of the usual gold.

Battle Ready (Battle Smith)
When you reach 3rd level, your combat training and your experiments with magic and have paid
off in two ways:
• You gain proficiency with martial weapons.
• When you attack with a magic weapon, you can use your Intelligence modifier, instead of Strength or Dexterity, for the attack and damage rolls.

Iron Defender
By 3rd level, the tinkering in your free time has borne you a faithful companion, an iron defender. This metallic creature resembles a hound, a cougar, a bear, or another four-legged creature of your choice. It is friendly to you and your companions, and it obeys your commands.
See this creature’s game statistics in the iron defender stat block.
In combat, the iron defender shares your initiative count, but it takes its turn immediately after yours. It can move and use its reaction on its own, but the only action it takes on its turn is the Dodge action, unless you take a bonus action on your turn to command it to take one of the actions in its stat block or the Dash, Disengage, or Help action.
If the mending spell is cast on it, it regains 2d6 hit points. If it has died within the last hour, you can use your smith’s tools as an action to revive it, provided you are within 5 feet of it and you expend a spell slot of 1st level or higher. The iron defender returns to life after 1 minute with all its hit points restored.
At the end of a long rest, you can create a new iron defender if you have your smith’s tools with you. If you already have an iron defender from this feature, the first one immediately perishes.

Might of the Master. The following numbers increase by 1 when your proficiency bonus increases by 1: the iron defender’s skill bonuses, the bonuses to hit and damage of its bite, and the number of hit points restored by its Repair action.
Vigilant. The iron defender can’t be surprised.
Actions (Requires Your Bonus Action)
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target you can see. Hit: 1d8 + 2 piercing damage.
Repair (3/Day). The magical mechanisms inside the iron defender restore 2d8 + 2 hit points to itself or to one construct or object within 5 feet of it.
Reaction
Defensive Pounce. The iron defender imposes disadvantage on the attack roll of one creature it can see that is within 5 feet of it, provided the attack roll is against a creature other than the iron defender.

Warforged Resilience: You were created to have remarkable fortitude and have the following benefits: You have advantage on saving throws against being poisoned, and have resistance to poison damage.
You are immune to disease.
You don’t need to eat, drink, or breathe.
You don’t need to sleep and don’t suffer the effects of exhaustion due to the lack of rest, and magic can’t put you to sleep.
Sentry’s Rest: When you take a long rest, you must spend at least six hours in an inactive, motionless state, rather than sleeping. In this state, you appear inert, but it doesn’t render you unconcious, and you can see and hear as normal.
Integrated Protection: Elric’s body has builtin defensive layers, which determines his armor class. Elric gains no benefit from wearing armor, but if he is using a shield, he applies its bonus as normal.
Elric can alter his body to enter different defensive modes each time he finishes a long rest he can choose between Darkwood Core (unarmored) or Composite Plating as he lacks the heavy armor proficiency to use Heavy Plating.
Composite Plating (armor) mode selected: AC 13+ Dexterity modifier (maximum 2) + ½ proficiency bonus (round up) [Requires Medium armor Proficiency] (Currently 13+2+1=16)
Specialized Design: Elric gains 1 skill proficiency (Nature), tool proficiency (Herbalism Kit), and fluency in one language of his choice (Dwarven).
Integrated Tool: Choose one tool Elric is proficient with (Thieves' Tools). This tool is integrated into Elric’s body and he doubles his proficiency bonus for any ability checks made with it. Elric must have his hands free to use this tool.

History: Elric and Rush are ancient warriors from a past civilization some scholars know of as Xen’drik. The two survived mostly by being forgotten in a remote underground supply depot where Elric and his Iron Defender were tasked with patrolling the site and they continued to do so faithfully for years with only each other for company until a group of Dwarves managed to dig into the site and convince Elric that it no longer had to be defended, especially since all the supplies had either been depleted, broken down over time, or scavenged for parts to keep Elric and Rush alive. With how isolated Elric was, he is not sure what happened became of the rest of Xen’drik culture, including the other Warforged that he knew of. The dwarven cleric of the forge in that group managed to convince Elric to come along and become an adventurer with them. And for a time Elric was content with that, until the group broke up to go their own ways… and now Elric is looking to join up on a new team with his dwarven cleric friend and others to continue adventuring.

Elric knows that his now ‘unique’ knowledge and expertise in ‘forgotten’ firearms and related equipment (which includes larger siege guns) could prove devastating in the wrong hands so while he freely uses his firearms he is very cautious about letting others know how his ‘boomsticks’ work.

Equipment: Rush
Rush Carries 18 of 210lbs of gear.
Collar of Common Language
Pack Saddle
2 Large Sacks (Attached to the Pack Saddle, each can carry up to 90 pounds.)
Equipment: Elric
+1 Natural Armor Amulet
Armcannon, similar to Armblade and Wand Sheath but with ranged weapons, a two-handed weapon can be used but can only be fired if the other arm is used to brace and if needed reload the weapon when it is used. If the weapon isn’t light then it is visible while retracted, otherwise, it is hidden internally. In either case, the weapon cannot be disarmed or damaged when retracted. It takes a bonus action to extend or retract the weapon. The hand the weapon is installed in cannot be used for anything else while the weapon is extended. The integrated weapon cannot be disarmed or let go without spending 1 minute to break attunement with the item. (Just like with Wand Sheath) [Attuned and has the Mixed-Use Gun integrated into it.]

Elric's current coin funds are: 2pp, 4gp, 6sp, 5cp

Mixed-Use Gun is integrated into the Armcannon and imbued with Repeating Shot so Elric is attuned with it. (Elric still has 2 more attunement slots) As a two-handed weapon, Elric must brace the weapon with his left hand when firing and loading ammunition into the barrels. (+6 to hit, uses +3 (Int bonus for damage)
2 Shotshell Barrels do 1d12 piercing, Ballistic (20/60), Heavy Magazine (2), two-handed
1 Cartridge Barrel does 2d6 piercing, Ballistic (120/360), Heavy, Magazine (1), two-handed
Ammo types used by the Mixed-Use Gun:
Load, Cartridge (Rifle) – These fit the mixed-use gun’s cartridge barrel, has the breach (2) weapon property (ignores 2pts of AC from armor, shield, or natural armor but not from other sources)
Load, Shotshell – These fit the mix-use gun’s shotshell barrels, Shotshells have the blast weapon property (advantage on attacks, which negates long-range disadvantage, when in long-range can target two adjacent enemies [within 5ft of each other], one attack roll and damage roll for both, and never apply stat modifier to damage for shotshell attacks unless the stat is negative.)
Load, Slug – These fit the mix-use gun’s shotshell barrels and have the deadly weapon property. (Deadly lets you re-roll 1 of the weapon’s damage dice if it rolls a 1. Cannot re-roll any die that has already been re-rolled with another effect and vice versa.)

Background Feature: All Eyes on You
Your accent, mannerisms, figures of speech, and perhaps even your appearance all mark you as foreign. (For Elric it is his appearance.)
Curious glances are directed your way wherever you go, which can be a nuisance, but you also gain the friendly interest of scholars and others intrigued by the ancient culture you're from, to say nothing of everyday folk who are eager to hear stories of your homeland.
You can parley this attention into access to people and places you might not otherwise have, for you and your traveling companions. Noble lords, scholars, and merchant princes, to name a few, might be interested in hearing about your distant homeland and people.
