5e & Savage Worlds: the Moppet


Brief: Moppets are a race of living constructs often known as "Puppet-folk". Their origin ranges from being created by lone puppeteer magicians to noble houses or guilds that specialize in constructs. In Eberron, for instance, House Cannith both produced the Warforged for military purposes, and the Moppet for the entertainment industry for the taverns across Khorvaire. To describe a Moppet is difficult as they take on many forms. Their 'skin' tends to be arcane weaved or runed felt cloth or wood with a delicate skeletal structure within. Some Moppets appear to be a caricature of humanity, albeit with skin colors of banana yellow or acid green. Some appear to be anthropomorphic versions of animals (though the frog Moppet might be said to be more like a Grippli than a frog).

Moppets have the following traits.

Savage Worlds
Small: -1 Toughness due to size.

Construct: Moppets add +2 to recover from being Shaken, don’t suffer wound modifiers, and are immune to poison and disease. Moppets cannot heal naturally. To heal a moppet requires the Repair skill- which is used like the Healing skill only with no “Golden Hour.”

Charismatic: Due to be natural performers, Moppets begin play with the "Charismatic" edge and have +2 to their Charisma.

Personable: Further adding to their natural Charisma due to their amusing looks and mannerisms, many Moppets are good at entertaining an audience and satirizing a subject. They begin play with a d6 Persuade.

Living Construct: Even though you were constructed, you are a living creature. You are immune to disease. You do not need to eat or breathe, but you can ingest food and drink if you wish.
Instead of sleeping, you enter an inactive state for 4 hours each day. You do not dream in this state; you are fully aware of your surroundings and notice approaching enemies and other events as normal.

Base Move: 25 ft. / Size: Small

Performer: You have proficiency in the Performance skill regardless of class.
