    I thought about making a new character for my party (consists of a dragonborn fighter, an eladrin wizard and a eladrin cleric, and finally a tiefling rogue) and I was surprised there wasn't a single human among us. I thought about making a cloth man, so it's like a warforged but not metal. I would have him disguised all the time as a human and possibly be some sort of spell caster.I suppose he would have a natural weakness to fire and the only way he could be healed would be with a repair check so he can sew himself back up. What does /tg/ have to say to that?

    Needs to require cloth. Wrong colored cloth will cause charisma penalties until they're dyed or replaced.

    Also, what's he filled with?

    Seems like he could die pretty easily. Unless conventional attacks tend to pass right through him doing minimal damage - that's how Mark twain's fake ironclad managed to make it down the Mississippi with all the Confederate guns firing at it.

    Alternately you could fill him with sand and make a sand bag man.

    But he isn't a human, he's a construct.

    He makes everybody happy

    Of course he would need cloth and thread to fix himself up. However, different colored cloth wouldn't matter, since he would be bundled up all the time to prevent anyone from realizing he isn't truly alive. He would probably be filled with fluff, just like a stuff doll.

    Because he's a living cloth man. Don't you just want to hug him?

    He should survive most injuries pretty easy as long as he has time and the materials to put himself back together. I'm sure the party would wonder how he regrew a arm so fast though...

    A living pinata? If it wasn't already a video game, I would say that would be an awesome character race

    Exactly. Either you are a woman or a very creative guy.

    Just thought about his possible equipment; perhaps a staff adorned with a kit to repair himself or even a giant sewing needle. He could sew little pieces of trophies from friends and enemies into himself, and makes little stuff dolls (brothers and sisters who obviously aren't alive) with his spare time.

    A little big planet? Something feels fuzzy about this.

    Sounds good to me, although I would change it so the kids grew up and forgot about him. He decides to become a wizard himself so that he can either become A REAL BOY! or to gather other discarded objects in the world, bring them to life, and take care of them as his own people.

    He COULD be creepy, but I don't think he would be malicious. I expect him to have a "...uh...so...what are we doing?" kind of attitude.

    The burning sounds promising.

    Maybe he can put it out for a while, but it has a tendency to re-light. Additionally he can restrain himself but it takes an amazing amount of will and concentration to do so.

    Basically he goes into a town swathed in robes as a disguise, but then someone bumps him and the robes fly off, his head ignites and he begins shrieking.

    I bet he was the result of a pissed Balor which popped him into a state of being in eternal pain but not actually suffering from any wounds. Although he is a zombie, he isn't really undead as he is regenerating the damage

    Being a construct, he should need to breath, eat, or sleep. Healing spells are only half as effective (like warforged) Using the repair skill heals equal to the amount of points the character has in the skill with a DC of 15 once every hour. But because of his composition, he has a natural weakness to fire and receives double the damage unless protected with a spell or magical clothing.

    Once I get him made and have his abilities cemented, I'll post them (probably in the next week) I'm copying mostly from the warforged race, while switching a few things in and out.

    I don't visit much anymore, for good reason.

    I heartily approve this thread.
