Rag Doll, Variant (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Stronger than any first party race and uses incomplete and incorrect wording throughout. The traits need to be mechanically worded correctly as they are often vague. The ability to be any size from Tiny to Large, choice of darkvision, tremorsense or blindsight, several condition immunities, etc. Overall needs a rework both from a mechanic perspective to better compare to the first party content. Consult the 5e Race Design Guide for help and see the Featured Articles pages for some exemplary content. See the talk page as well for a breakdown of what is wrong with the race's traits.

Construct Doll[edit]

Hurried footsteps echoed through the hall, rapidly approaching the door of the mages laboratory. The mages assistance hurriedly began preparing the mages experiments. The door flew open as the assistant finished the preparations and the mage entered the room. The mage disregarded his assistant and looked upon his creation. In front of him stood a large, humanoid doll constructed of a combination of mix-matched fabrics and steel, consisting of 4 arms and 3 legs. His ultimate creation. He pulled out the incantation and began his experiments.

Physical Description[edit]

Construct dolls are humanoid dolls that vary in both size and in shape. They can have any modification imaginable, such as wings, extra arms, or extra legs. Their body is made up of a combination of steel and variously colored fabric. The design of a construct doll is only limited by the imagination, with some holding more functionality than others. They are sustained through magic that was inserted into their bodies by the magic user who made them.


Construct dolls are constructs created by powerful artificers or wizards that are created for a multitude of purposes. Some are used merely as assistants and others are used as guardians or protectors. Whatever the purpose a construct doll serves, they often hold little sentience and are likely doomed to a life of servitude.


Construct dolls are a servant race and thus their society is that of servitude towards their creators. Rarely does a construct doll break free of the servitude, but it is not unheard of. An independent construct doll comes to be either from breaking free from their servitude, or the death of their creator. Such construct dolls often spend their lives wandering, with no real purpose, and are often rejected by society.

Construct Doll Names[edit]

Construct Dolls can have any name, given to them by their creator.

Construct Doll. Ash, Cabe, Axel, Bit, Ranger, Geno, Scrappie, Cyd, Qwerty,Talus, Tinker, Oro...
