  • Glass Jar. When hit by a weapon attack with a natural 20 or it is reduced to 0 hit points, a preservefolk’s glass jar shatters, reducing its armor class from 13 to 10 and causing the splintered glass to burst in all directions. Each creature within 5 feet of the exploding preservefolk must make a DC 14 Dexterity saving throw, taking 5 (1d10) piercing damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
  • Tickled. The preservefolk has disadvantage on Perception checks while within its jar. A preservefolk can remove its lid to speak, see, or hear to remove this penalty.
  • Undead Nature. The preservefolk does not need to eat, drink, or sleep.


  • Fist. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) bludgeoning damage.


From head to knee these humanoids are enclosed in glass jars. Their arms and legs come through especially cut places, but these are carefully soldered so as not to let in any air. And their heads, somewhat flattened by the glass lids, have a squashed and foolish look.

Preservefolk communicate with written words, but can take off their tops to speak if needed. They are created by cooky hags. Preservefolk believe that all other living beings should be pickled, which they bring to the cooky hag for pickling.

Preservatories. Preservefolk live in preservatories, which constitute a series of glass houses that look more like cupboards than ordinary dwellings, each with three stories.

Preservefolk are led by the Prime Preserve and Preserva.

These nobles dictate much of the preservefolk actions and act as second-in-command to the cooky hag.
