Yukes are an enigmatic and reclusive tribe. Hailing from Veo Lu in the north, they reside mainly in the city of Shella, where they study magic extensively. They live out their whole lives in specialized armor, supposedly to augment their magical abilities. Whether they have a true physical form, or simply create one with their power, only the Yukes themselves know, and they aren’t telling.
Yukes as a playable race
Strange Physiology: When you are reduced to 0 hit points but not killed outright, you can drop to 1 hit point instead as you fade away from the physical world to avoid a mortal blow. You can’t use this feature again until you finish a long rest.
Living Armor: Living in a metal frame has given you a solid sense of what it means to move around with armor. You gain proficiency in light and medium armor.
Magical Prowess: Yukes are famed for their spellcasting ability, and even children are capable of manifesting some form of magic. You know the prestidigitation cantrip. Once you reach 3rd level, you can cast the magic missile spell once per day at second level. Once you reach 5th level, you can also cast the invisibility spell once per day at second level. Intelligence is your spellcasting ability for these spells.
