In this homebrew interpretation of the Soulforged, it is considered a classless race, but progresses and gains features like a class.
A Soulforged character will start off with race-like benefits and bonuses, and then gain proficiencies and features like a class as the character gains levels.
Soulforged will come with a specialized ‘Core’, which is like a class archetype. This ‘Core’ will stay with Soulforged, differentiating them by magical, light martial, or heavy martial types.
The Soulforged will then have a list of ‘Armaments’ to choose from, starting with a base amount and gaining more with level progressions. The list of Armaments will mimic that of the 3.5e Spellborg, and closely resemble the 5e Warlock Invocations by providing mostly persistent effect features, with level and Archetype restrictions.
Work still in progress.
