About

Ring servants are mighty constructs created by ring magic. Though large in stature, they are deceptively light due to their form being composed of energy. A ring servant stands 10 feet tall and weighs 300 pounds.

Fleeting Form. Ring servants are temporary beings, brought into existence by transmuting two simple metal rings into the weapons that surmount the creature’s fists. These rings serve as the catalyst that generates the rest of the creature’s form. Ring servants aren’t mindless.

They understand the fleeting span of their existence and don’t rebel against it. Exceptions exists, where powerful ring wardens work tirelessly to imbue a ring servant with permanent existence. Such an enduring transformation is rare, however, and the resulting creature may have difficulty coming to terms with lingering in the world.
