So more like a Warforged, but not mass-produced and no armor plating.

Like a warforged, but a different backstory. I wanted them to be more like Asimov's robots or Mr. Data from Star Trek. If you have time, give it a download. It's free.

Here's a little more on their history:

History: Legends tell of the wizard-king Urezan, the wisest and kindest ruler of ancient times. Some stories claim that he imbued intelligent life into his wooden statues. Some helped him with his magical research, others served as healers and protectors for his kingdom. Working alongside the people, they became known as the carven. They took every opportunity to learn about the various cultures that flowed through the trading city. They seemed especially interested in families, and the joy that children can bring.

Though he was kind-hearted, Urezan was not naïve. He feared how others might abuse his creations. To prevent their misuse, he created them with a deep moral code. It forbad stealing, destruction, and the taking of life except in their own defense or the defense of the innocent. He also gave them one final order. Upon his death, the carven laid down their tools, their healing herbs, their spears. They left the city and faded away into the deep wild places of the world.

In the long centuries since, legends have arisen of wooden men and women who accompanied great heroes on their quests. They formed deep friendships with these legendary heroes, but never discussed their homeland. In hidden enclaves deep in the forests and hills, they dedicated themselves to Urezan’s pursuit of knowledge. However, they found knowledge was not enough. They longed to have families.. Through it took centuries, they finally rediscovered Urezan’s magical rituals for giving life to wood. They created new carven, their children. These “children” often found themselves restless, longing to see the wider world. Many have slipped away from their homes to experience other cultures, and perhaps find their purpose and place among the other races.
