Golem, Robot

Though corroded and damaged, this bipedal metallic construct moves silently, as though powered by some force other than its own rattling gears.

Immunity to Magic (Ex)

A robot golem is immune to spells or spell-like abilities that allow spell resistance. In addition, certain spells and effects function differently against it, as noted below.

  • A magical attack that deals electricity damage deals half damage to the golem. Additionally, for 1d4+1 rounds the golem gains the benefits of haste and goes berserk. The uncontrolled golem goes on a rampage, attacking the nearest living creature or smashing an object smaller than itself if no creature is within reach; it then moves on to spread more destruction. The golem comes back under the control of its creator when the duration ends.
  • A transmute metal to wood spell reduces the robot golem's damage reduction by 5 and its natural armor bonus by 9 for 1d4 rounds.
  • A robot golem is affected normally by rust attacks, such as those of a rust monster or a rusting grasp spell.

Rend Construct (Ex)

This functions as the rend special ability, except the robot golem can rend only other constructs.

Shockwave (Ex)

A robot golem can release a pulse of electrical energy held within its nonfunctioning batteries as a standard action once every 1d4 rounds. This pulse is a 30-foot-radius spread that deals 8d6 points of electricity damage to all creatures in its area of effect (Reflex DC 19 half). The save DC is Constitution-based and includes a +2 racial bonus.

Robot Golem Construction

A robot golem's body used to be a Large robot, but is now nonfunctional. Any major damage on the intended body must be repaired prior to animation.
