This is a race that I brewed up because (a long while ago) one of my players died while on a holy mission for Olidammara, the Trickster god of thieves. He asked Oli D for help, who surprisingly interceded oh his behalf, placing his soul in the vacant shell of a brass automaton.
I played it on the fly, coming up with stats as we went along. We’ve since migrated to 5e, and while that player no longer has that character, I decided to write up some proper homebrew using my spiffy new Latex D&D template!
Enjoy! Feel free to use and adapt this for your own games!
