The ironbound are powerful magical constructs forged from black iron. They act as defenders of the Daqan Lords. These iron juggernauts are animated by the magic of Artificers from Greyhaven and Nerekhall. In fact, the city guard of Nerekhall consists almost entirely of Ironbound, controlled by the citiy's chief artificer.
Since the demonic uprising, the Nerekhall Ironbound have been tasked with detecting, absorbing, and dissipating malign magical energy. Lately, their behavior has become erratic, and the Chief Artificer, Rylan Olliven, assures those in the city that this is all quite normal and will soon be resolved.
