Prinny (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



Prinnies are generally people who have done bad deeds in a former life, and are forced to work for minimum wages - or for free - until they have redeemed themselves. At this point, they may be reborn once more, be it into their normal body or another one. A prinny as a single being is often unsure of itself, and there are several with confidence issues. Besides this, they are usually happy-go-lucky creatures.

Physical Description[edit]

Prinnies resemble penguins in various aspects, and the mistake of calling one by the other's name is frequent. However, unique to the prinny are peg legs replacing both flippers, small bat-like wings, several "threads" connecting a white belly to a (usually) blue body and a small bag worn as a belt. They aren't very tall, only about three or four feet tall at most.


Most races that are familiar with the prinny see them as slaves or helpers, depending on the location (Evil-inclined areas choose slaves, Good-inclined prefer helpers). Prinnies sometimes see other prinnies as saviours should the latter group manage to salvage a large number of prinnies from their fate. For the most part, prinnies are smiled upon by other races - to a limit.


Prinnies are as varied as humans in moral and legal beliefs, and so can come in any alignment. However, their demonic nature tends to put them more in the evil direction of the Good-evil scale.


Due to their trait of being enslaved, prinnies don't have any natural territories. However, a large enough group of prinnies may attract the attention of those who do not wish to do their own menial jobs, and the former are soon enslaved as a result.


Most prinnies believe in the might of Pringer X, a giant robot in the general shape of a prinny. However, as with alignment, prinnies choose who they worship, and so can come in many religions.


Prinnies commonly speak Common and little else; however, a verbal tic of theirs often makes them include the word "dood" (pronounced as "dude") in their sentences, usually as a reference to a person or to end a sentence. This is an example, dood.


Prinnies usually keep the names they received in their previous lives, and so come in great varieties.
