SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Candyborn. Any creature can make a Perception check (DC 10) to determine if a creature is made of candy. As a reaction, any creature with a mouth can bite the candykin, inflicting 1 point of piercing damage per creature’s size (small inflicts 1 point, medium inflicts 2, etc.) or using its existing bite attack. Bestial creatures with sharp teeth (as per the GM’s discretion) inflict double damage. Creatures who inflict damage on a candykin with a bite are healed an equal amount.
  • Regeneration. The candykin regains 3 hit points at the start of its turns if it is near a source of candy, like Candy Valley or the Valley of Mo. If the candykin takes fire damage, this trait doesn’t function at the start of the candykin’s next turn. The candykin dies only if it starts its turn with 0 hit points and doesn’t regenerate.

ACTIONS

  • Club. Melee Weapon Attack: +2 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 2 (1d4) bludgeoning damage.

REACTIONS

  • Sticky Flesh. When a creature misses the candykin with a melee weapon attack, the candykin’s flesh can catch the weapon. The attacker must succeed on a DC 10 Strength saving throw, or the weapon becomes stuck to the candykin. If the weapon’s wielder can’t or won’t let go of the weapon, the wielder is grappled while the weapon is stuck. While stuck, the weapon can’t be used. A creature can pull the weapon free by taking an action to make a DC 10 Strength check and succeeding.

ABOUT

This candy-being wears a tall hat, swallow-tail coat and tight breeches; but all its garments are fastened to it in some way, as if they were not made to come off, and its bright colors look to have been painted on. The women have a similar appearance, with a big bonnet that is part of their heads.

Candykin are people made of candy who reside in Candy Valley in Merryland. Their bones are made of stick candy and their flesh is marshmallow, so candykin regularly powder themselves with sugar to keep from sticking to things.

Candy Cannibals. Although candykin eat candy regularly, they have no teeth, using only their gums. They eat bonbons and sugar-plums in the shapes of apples, pears, oranges, grapes, berries, peaches, rose-leaves, and violets; they drink it all up with pink lemonade. One point of note is that candykin who sufficiently break apart are eaten by the community, a show of great respect.
