Warforged Warlock – Kristian

Jeremiah asks:

I listened to the most recent episode on warforged. Warforged are probably my favorite D&D race ever, and I pretty much play one whenever the DM lets me. I particularly enjoyed the discussion on warforged wizards and sorcerers. I was wondering, in particular, what types of entities would a warforged warlock likely make a pact with.

Kristian answers with some additional contributions from Keith and Wayne.

Also, DND Beyond coincidentally posted a video of Mike Mearls discussing the Warlock’s relationship to their patrons.
