Armorian (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Being below maturity gives you too many ability score increases. Gauntlets deal 1d6 damage. Leggings on either pre or post maturity is too many ability score increases. Chest plate grants resistance to 2 common damage types. Ideally the pre maturity, and post maturity could be fashioned into 2 unique subraces that both share some features instead of the "if this then this, otherwise this." thing. Race Do's and Dont's.

Physical Description[edit]

Armoria are a race of Humanoid-Like creatures, with one notable difference. As a child, they resemble Humans to a T, but as they mature, they start to develop organic pieces of armor on their skin. Although any singular Armorian can develop any piece of armor, with some even developing whole suits, Males usually develop heavier pieces, like Helms and Chest-plates, and Women usually develop lighter pieces, like Gauntlets and Leggings. The kind of material usually differs based on gender too, with Males usually being comprised of Iron, Steel, and Cobalt, and Women usually comprising of Copper, Adamantite, and, Gold. The shapes of the pieces of armor can vary drastically.


Not much is truthfully known about the Armoria. They evolved from humans from areas with high mineral contents. It is thought that the water and food around the areas contained a higher mineral count, and the consumption of these are what caused them to start developing the organic armor. Towns and cities are usually run by Military, but not necessarily as a dictatorship.


Female armorians are well protected, otherwise they would be hunted for the materials their armor is made out of.

Armorian Names[edit]

Armorian names are similar to Human Names for the most part, but most towns give their citizens a designation of 2 letters, comprising of the initials of their Armor Metal, and the first Piece of Armor Grown. Nicknames are commonly only comprised of their Armor Metal, but sometimes with a little flare thrown in.

Nicknames: Sky Iron, Adamantite, Gold Bell.
