Arcana Robot[edit]


Physical Description[edit]

Standing on two legs with the general shape of their creators of any size and weight due to their creators desire or their own duties; covered head to toe in a magical fake skin that has the properties of the strongest metals known across the land, this skin makes the robots look lifelike to the simple men, it is due to the high amount of magical energy coursing just below the skin giving them touch that makes them unable to wear anything but simple clothes. Unfortunately the Wizards that have created them have no way of making them fake skin or tans as such they are bold and a bleached paper white in skin colour.


The first Arcana robot was first created a way of getting strong labour but as the spells used to created gets refined so does the Arcana Robots artificial Intelligence, the spells have gotten so refined that they have given the Arcana Robots conscience, at first the creators were afraid for they have created living being not through sexual copulation, it soon became the norm for powerful wizards for which their own arcana have made them barren created a Arcana Robot to become what would be their children and their aids.


While the Arcana Robots are created that is a major way that the robots interact with their surroundings and other creatures. They first and foremost see their particular creator as a form of parent as they want to become as close as a living organism as possible so that includes having a mother or father. Additional while they were first created as simple labours they have become extreme helpful towards anyone that treats them kindly,

To make this Race more feasible you might like to implimate the 3 laws of robotics:

1: A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

2: A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3: A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Do note that theses law only include humans not any other races within the campain
