Mithral Golem

A mithral golem cannot speak or make any vocal noise, nor does it have any distinguishable odor. Unlike most golems, it can run just as well as a normal creature.

A mithral golem’s natural weapons are treated as epic for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

Combat

Alacrity (Su)

Once per round, the mithral golem may take an extra standard action (either before or after its other actions in the round).

Magic Immunity (Ex)

A mithral golem is immune to all magical and supernatural effects, except as follows. A slow spell negates its alacrity for 1d4 rounds, while a haste spell restores 1d6 hit points per level of the caster (maximum 10d6) or restores its alacrity, if previously negated by a slow spell. Multiple slow spells simply extend the duration of the effect.

Construction

A mithral golem’s body is sculpted from 8 ½ tons of pure iron and is then polymorphed into mithral (using wish). A mithral golem costs 250,000 gold pieces to create, which includes 5,000 gp for the body. Assembling the body requires a successful Craft (armorsmithing) or Craft (weaponsmithing) check (DC 30). The creator must be 25th level, have the Craft Epic Magic Arms and Armor feat, and be able to cast arcane spells. Completing the ritual drains 5,000 XP from the creator and requires geas/quest, haste, and wish.

Adamantine Golem

An adamantine golem cannot speak or make any vocal noise, nor does it have any distinguishable odor.

An adamantine golem’s natural weapons are treated as epic for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

Combat

Trample (Ex)

As a standard action during its turn each round, the adamantine golem can literally run over an opponent at least one size category smaller than itself. The trample deals 8d10+30 points of bludgeoning damage. Trampled opponents can either attempt attacks of opportunity at a -4 penalty or Reflex saves (DC 57) for half damage. The DC is Strength-based.

Magic Immunity (Ex)

An adamantine golem is immune to all magical and supernatural effects.

Construction

An adamantine golem’s body is sculpted from 45,000 pounds of pure iron and is then polymorphed into adamantine (using wish). The golem costs 500,000 gold pieces to create, which includes 25,000 gp for the body. Assembling the body requires a successful Craft (armorsmithing) or Craft (weaponsmithing) check (DC 40). The creator must be 30th level, have the Craft Epic Magic Arms and Armor feat, and be able to cast arcane spells. Completing the ritual drains 10,000 XP from the creator and requires crushing hand, geas/quest, and wish.
