Seedling (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Seedlings are small, plant-like humanoids. They have wooden horns growing from their heads, and their skin can be green, blue or similar in colour to humans. Their clothes usually consist of colourful traditional silks tied around their bodies, shielding them from the sun while letting in breezes to keep them cool.
Seedlings spread across deserts, creating oases with the help of water spirits such as nymphs and elementals. Long ago, these oases were bastions against the forces of evil and chaos; now, they offer travellers respite from the harsh desert.
Seedlings originate from desert oases, and often travel the desert as merchants. They usually get along well with other races, and freely welcome them into their civilisations. Each seedling oasis is run by a chief and a water spirit, who work to keep the oasis safe and prosperous.
Seedlings' names most often consist of two syllables, though names with three syllables aren't uncommon, and they don't typically have surnames.
Male: Jasper, Pami, Roto, Sabayt, Saeed, Shakuro, Tethu
Female: Carlotta, Hosni, Lili, Nubit, Jamileh, Shalara, Tethi

You can have up to three such items active at a time. When you create an item, choose one of the following options: Magical toy: This toy is a magical facsimile animal, monster, or person, such as a frog, mouse, bird, dragon, or soldier. When placed on the ground, the toy moves 5 feet across the ground on each of your turns in a random direction. It makes noises as appropriate to the creature it represents.
