Playable Race: Stufflin


This special playable race goes out to @snacktaco who wanted a magical dragon plushie as a first time D&D character. Who are we at the Mage College to deny that?  If you want to see more of these little guys, let me know in the comments or on Twitter! (@Archmage_Derek)

Without further ado, the adorable living plushies, the Stufflin!

Playable Race: Stufflin

Stufflin are small stuffed animals created to be wonderful companions. Usually created by gnomes and other magically inclined cultures, stufflin are made to be perfect friends, often bonding with the first person they befriend. As they experience the world, stufflin grow to become their own people and can choose new best friends. Stufflin vary in appearance, looking like anything from cute dragon plush toys to fuzzy, furry bears. Uusually, they are often created to look a certain way based on their maker’s preference. Stufflin names tend to be “cute” and adorable. Because stufflin generally tend to accrue a number of nicknames based on their appearances and personalities, they usually choose a name they like best out of the many they have.

      1. They gain Common, and one language of your choice, often the language of their creator.
