Warforged Racial Bonuses
Composite Plating (Ex):
The plating used to build a warforged provides a +2 armor bonus. This plating is not
natural armor and does not stack with other effects that give an armor bonus (other than natural armor). This composite plating occupies the same space on the body as a suit of armor or a robe, and thus a warforged cannot wear armor or magic robes. A warforged can be enchanted just as armor can be. The creature must be present for the entire time it takes to enchant him.Composite plating also provides a warforged with a 5% arcane spell failure chance, similar to the penalty for wearing light armor. Any class ability that allows a warforged to ignore the arcane spell failure chance for light armor lets him ignore this penalty as well.
Light Fortiﬁcation (Ex):
When a critical hit or sneak attack is scored on a warforged, there is a 25% chance that the critical hit or sneak attack is negated and damage is instead rolled normally
Most warforged have levels in martial classes such as warrior, ﬁghter,or occasionally paladin, ranger, or barbarian. Some warforged abandon their warlike heritage, becoming spellcasters or even rogues.

+2 Constitution, –2 Wisdom, –2 Charisma.

Special Qualities (see above): Composite plating, light fortiﬁcation, living construct traits.

A living construct possesses the following traits(unless otherwise noted in a creature’s entry).
