Yesterday in the Kender post, I wondered why no one is bitching about the warforged coming back, but taichara responded that "people who play warforged haven't been handed a mandate to drive the rest of the table into an insane asylum with their pwecious twee kleptomaniac". Well, no, they haven't. The mandate they have been handed gives them the right to sullen fighty types with few, if any, social connections. If the kender is custom made for That Guy, the warforged is custom made for The Turtle.
Also, it's made for the guy who says "I'm tired of being told my character has human limitations like a need to eat, drink and breathe, and I'm terrified that the GM will tell me I have to take my armor off to rest. So I want a race that that has no disadvantages other than 'refuses to act like a human being'."
By the way, Timrod, did you know that the kender are coming back?
