Figured I'd quickly throw together warforged paragons since I did that for daelkyr half-blood. Unfortunately there are lots of them. Saw some complaints about their balance. I haven't looked close enough at them to decide which one (or combo) I like the best.

Banatine's Warforged Paragon

Known for their prowess in battle, and their ability to withstand great physical punishment, the warforged are masters of the battlefields which they were created to fight on. Warforged paragons further exemplify this reputation, increasing not only their combat prowess, but their resilience, both physical and mental.

Warforged paragons are peerless fighters, and powerful paragons often rise to positions of leadership, or great renown.

Adventures: Warforged paragons stand in the frontlines of any battle that their path takes them to. Since warforged do not have any real community to call their own, warforged paragons adventure not only to increase their formidable skills, but also to search for a place that they might call Home.

Characteristics: Warforged paragons are tough, skilled warriors who find their purpose in the field of battle. Because of their martial focus, warforged fighters and paladins are likely to become paragons, although any melee oriented class is more likely to become a paragon than anything else. The glyph that marks the forehead of all warforged tends to be more intricate on warforged paragons than on others, but whether it is coincidence, or something more, is unknown.

Alignment: Warforged paragons can be of any alignment, and most are neutral like other warforged. However, warforged paragons are more likely to be lawful than chaotic, due to their military bent.

Religion: Warforged paragons are just as dispassionate about religion as most other warforged. Some extremely rare warforged will pray to the gods for strength or survival, but the vast majority of warforged see little need for gods or faith in the heat of combat.

Background: Most warforged paragons are veterans of the Last War, and most of them have proved their worth a hundred times over, and a hundred times again. These individuals have survived the fiercest battles, overcome their greatest fears, and acheived the greatest triumphs. A warforged paragon is not only a peerless fighter, but an invaluable companion.

Warforged paragons have the following game statistics.
Abilities: Strength is important for warforged paragons because they often serve as melee fighters and emphasise their martial prowess. Constitution is important not only to a warforged paragon's ability to stand in battle, but also because resilience one of the hallmarks of the warforged race.
Alignment: Any.
Hit Die: d12.

Class Skills
The warforged paragon's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Climb (Str), Craft (Int), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Warfare) (Int), Profession (Int), and Swim (Str).
Skill Points at Each Level: 2 + Int modifier.

Class Features
All of the following are class features of the warforged paragon class.

Weapon and Armour Proficiency: Warforged paragons are proficient with all simple and martial weapons, with light, medium, and heavy armour, and with shields (but not tower shields).

Great Warrior (Ex): A warforged character's paragon levels stack with fighter levels for the purposes of meeting feat prerequisites. For example, a 2nd-level fighter/ 3rd-level warforged paragon is 5th for the feats that it can qualify for (such as Weapon Specialisation).

Bonus feat: At 1st level, a warforged paragon gains a bonus feat from the list avaliable to fighters.

Improved plating (Ex): At 2nd level, the armour bonus granted by a warforged paragon's Composite Plating (regardless of composition) increases by 1. If the warforged character posesses the Unarmoured Body feat, then he gains a +1 bonus to it's natural armour instead.

Durable will (Ex): At 2nd level, a warforged paragon gains a bonus equal to his Constitution bonus (if any) to Will saves.

Ability boost (Ex): At 3rd level, a warforged paragon's Constitution score increases by 2 points.

I had a hunt around the website that second PDF was on. I thought I might be able to find the page that links to the PDF and see if that had any credits on it.

I have no idea how you found that second document, because Google hasn't got a listing for it.

Anyhoo, I chopped the end off of the URL and found myself in a directory structure. I had a good dig around several other directories, but found nothing. Then I chopped some more off the URL and found that the website is a blog owned by a guy called Joe Rapoza. It looks like Joe has set up his blog, but then hid dozens of random files inside it.

Maybe you could contact Joe Rapoza and ask him if the second PDF is something he made himself.
