Mockeries Revisited

These guys are due another look, condensing the previous posts into one usable set of guidelines.

MOCKERIES
  • Creatures of wood, felt, and steel given the spark of life.
  • They love acting human, but their needs are only imitated.
  • Children love them, real animals hate them.




MOCK TALENTS

  • Every Mockery has an innate super-human talent for a particular task.
  • The talent is often trivial, and rarely put to serious use.
  • They are excellent but unconventional teachers of their talent.

EXCEPTIONS

  • Mock People are known, but largely despised.
  • Mock Objects tend to live in the Underground.
  • Some have merged with organic tissue, calling themselves Fallacies: such as the False Angels and False Leviathan.


TEMPLATES

Apply your flavour of choice to these bones.

Mock Critter

STR 5, DEX 15, CHA 10, 4hp. d4 Damage.
  • Be clingy.
  • Be difficult.
  • Want to do everything other than their talent.

Mock Beast

STR 15, DEX 5, CHA 10, 7hp, d8 Damage.
  • Switch between human and animal behaviour
  • Switch between terrifying and pathetic.
  • Play dumb.

Mock Colossus
