The Heart Guard

Souls were bound to Manufactured Constructs that were created during the First War of Extermination by the Gnomes to serve as the Unbreakable Heart Guard, the elite fighting force of their army.

Nearly all Heart Guard were thought to be destroyed by the elves by the conclusion of the war. However, in 336 SED, a Heart Guard was found wandering the woods near the Dwarven settlement of Karsk. This Heart Guard had obtained a modicum of sentience and was serving as the woodlands protector, following no known instructions from its creators. The creature was destroyed, and the bound soul released.

The Heart Guard are creatures of artificial creation, a soul is bound to the construct giving it sentience. These creatures can be made from various materials such as metal, flora, or stone.

    • Earthquake Stomp. Once per Long Rest as an Action, you stomp the ground causing tremors in a 15 foot radius around you.

Any creature restrained in this method can attempt a Strength save to break out of the plant life at the end of their turn. The effect lasts for 1 minute, until you move, or until you use a free action to dismiss it.
