Yardrat (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


I learned how to use the technique Instant Transmission from the yardrats. The yardrats are really strange. They're not strong at all, but they have crazy techniques! I owe a lot to the yardrats for teaching me how to use the Instant Transmission. I should go thank them again sometime.

Physical Description[edit]

Yardrats can be very Strategic

They are around the height of the average human or slightly smaller, they never weigh more than seventy pounds, and their skin is pink. Their have yellow eyes and their head is spotted with purple along the top center. These purple spots can differ in variation but by no means are they a reliable way of differentiating one yardrat from another. They only have four fingers on either hand, and four toes on each foot. yardrat do not have any hair anywhere on their bodies, this includes a distinct lack of eyebrows. Yardrats are Androgynous and reproduce asexually. Although, to most other races it's nearly impossible to tell yardrats apart, they can tell each other apart.


Yardrats originated form the Planet Yardrat. They only lived there until it was destroyed, after which they traveled the universe looking for a suitable place to live and ended up in the Material Plane of this planet which they tend to call Earth.


Yardrats usually wear the same clothing which are often lavish with ruffles and belts. Any variation of the style is acceptable based on social standing, however deviation from the basic idea of the most popular fashion will often get a yardrat discriminated against by his peers. Damaging a yardrats clothes may be perceived as a huge sign of disrespect. They often make a living through their Instant Transmission ability, transporting goods, people, or creatures from one area to another. Sometimes yardrats travel the world to see new places and new people to expand their Transmission range, which is often how they become adventurers. It is not in a yardrat to deny the opportunity of gaining knowledge, and they are eager to share their knowledge. Their society is a perfect picture of unity, and it is very rare for one yardrat to turn down another who may need help. They are usually very kind and helpful.


Yardrat clothing, the traditional garb of the yardrat—they rarely wear anything else—consists of an ornate full-body garb consisting of baggy burgundy pants and a white top overlaid with cobalt-colored armor, among other details. This clothing uses the cost and statistics of a chain shirt.
