Muppet (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection. The lovers, the dreamers, and me.
A muppet is a construct made by an unknown creator from felt, cloth, string, and other generally soft materials. They tend to be cartoonish and cuddly looking. Unlike some other types of constructs, Muppets have souls and individual personalities.
While Muppets appear to be puppets constructed of felt, cloth and numerous other softer materials; their origins are largely unknown. As far as a Muppet (or practically anyone else) could say, one moment they weren't there, the next they sort of just showed up out of nowhere. Records of them have popped up at random over the past thousand years. However, some of the more prominent facets of folklore lead many to theorize that some sort of benevolent fey or deity intertwined with the arts and crafts creates Muppets in their workshop, sending them down to the Material Plane to fill out yet undiscovered purposes.
Due to their uncommon nature, it's unlikely a Muppet will encounter another one of their kind for a good deal of time, preferring to fit the role of entertainers. Many Muppets tend to become actors, travelling performers, daredevils and musicians, having a special kind of relationship with most other races; playing roles akin to teachers and acrobats thanks to their natural talents. Children are rather fond of a Muppet, and they may find themselves building up a lifelong reputation amidst others.
Usually, a Muppet may find themselves banding together with friends and rivals to form a travelling troupe of entertainers of 6-12 members; sometimes even with other Muppets. Although there are a few examples of a Muppet that has grown bored of this lifestyle, some settling down while others embracing adventuring as a career, a few even delving into arcane arts or devotion to the divine.
