Race Features:

Warforged Resilience --You were created to have remarkable fortitude, represented by the following benefits.
- You have advantage on saving throws against being poisoned, and you have resistance to poison damage.
- You are immune to disease.
- You don’t need to eat, drink, or breathe.
- You don’t need to sleep and don’t suffer the effects of exhaustion due to lack of rest, and magic can’t put you to sleep.

Integrated Protection -- You have +1 to AC and can integrate armor you are proficient with into your body.

Sentry's Rest --When you take a long rest, you must spend at least six hours in an inactive, motionless state, rather than sleeping. In this state, you appear inert, but it doesn’t render you unconscious, and you can see and hear as normal.

Specialized Design -- You gain one skill proficiency of your choice, one tool proficiency of your choice, and fluency in one language of your choice. (Perception, Calligraphy Tools, Elven)

Class Features::

Arcane Recovery -- Once per day when you finish a short rest, you can choose expended spell slots to recover. The spell slots can have a combined level that is equal to or less than half your wizard level (rounded up), and none of the slots can be 6th level or higher.

Arcane Traditions (Abjuration)

Arcane Tradition Feature (Abjuration Savant) -- Copy Abjuration spells into your spell book in half the time and at half the cost.

Arcane Tradition Feature (Arcane Ward) -- The first time a day you cast an Abjuration spell of 1st level or higher you siphon of some of the spells energy to create an Arcane Ward. The ward lasts until you complete your next long rest

The ward gives you temporary hitpoints equal to twice your wizard level + your Intelligence Modifier (Current total 14).

Whenever you have an Arcane Ward and cast an abjuration spell of 1st level or higher, your ward regains temporary hitpoints equal to twice the spell's level, to a maximum of the current ward's max temporary hit points.

The ward is not dispelled when it reaches 0 hitpoints, and can be recharged by the above method. (Note that the RAW does not say if the ward can be dispelled externally.)

Spells Prepared::

Cantrips: Acid Splash, Frostbite, Prestidigitation, Shape Water
1st Level: Absorb Elements, Ice Knife, Mage Armor, Magic Missile, Repair Warforged
2nd Level: Blur, Misty Step
3rd Level: Counterspell, Stinking Cloud

Spells in Spell Book::

1st Level: Absorb Elements, Comprehend Languages, Detect Magic, Find Familiar, Ice Knife, Mage Armor, Magic Missile, Repair Warforged
2nd Level: Blur, Invisibility, Misty Step, See Invisibility
3rd Level: Counterspell, Stinking Cloud

Risian Pine Imbued Wand -- This specially prepared wand, made from wood taken from a manifest zone, increases all spell-based Ice Damage by +1 if it is used as a Spell Focus during the casting.

Magic Equipment::

Risian Pine Imbued Wand -- This specially prepared wand, made from wood taken from a manifest zone, increases all spell-based Ice Damage by +1 if it is used as a Spell Focus during the casting.

Bag of Holding -- This bag has an interior space considerably larger than its outside dimensions, roughly 2 feet in diameter at the mouth and 4 feet deep. The bag can hold up to 500 pounds, not exceeding a volume of 64 cubic feet. The bag weighs 15 pounds, regardless of its contents. Retrieving an item from the bag requires an action.

Everbright Lantern -- This is a Bullseye Lantern with a Eberron dragonshard in it upon which Continual Flame has been cast. It provides normal light in a 60ft cone, and an 120ft of dim light. Because Continual Flame was used, the lantern does not use fuel and cannot be put out, but it can be shuttered to suppress the light per a normal bullseye lantern.

Wand of Magic Detection -- This wand has 3 charges. While holding it, you can spend 1 charge as an action to cast the detect magic
spell from it. The wand regains ld3 expended charges daily at dawn.

Wishlist and Ambitions:

1. Make a back-up of Nyd's current spellbook.
2. Add more spells to the spellbook, particularly looking at Abjuration spells in general and ice spells like Sleet Storm.
3. Would love to develop or discover a cold version of Fireball.
4. Warforge components are cool, but a built-in weapon would not be super useful. (Hopefully the core book gives more examples.)
5. Continue to develop Ansuz, ultimately searching for a way to create Warforged without a Creation Forge.
