Immutable Form. The golem is immune to any spell or effect that would alter its form.

Magic Resistance. The golem has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Quickness. The golem has advantage on Dexterity saving throws.

Magic Weapons. The golem's weapon attacks are magical.

Regeneration. The golem regains 10 hit points at the start of its turn. If the golem takes acid damage, this trait doesn't function at the start of the golem's next turn.

Liquid Metal. The golem can move through a space as narrow as 1 inch wide without squeezing. If the golem takes cold or fire damage, its speed is halved on its following turn.


Multiattack. The golem makes three mercury slice attacks.

Mercury Slice. Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 19 (4d6 + 5) slashing damage. This attack ignores resistance (but not immunity) to slashing damage. The target must make a DC 21 Constitution saving throw or become poisoned for 1 hour.
If the attack roll is a 20, the slice severs a limb unless the target is immune to slashing damage. Roll 1d6.

1-2. Severed arm. The target can no longer hold anything in two hands, and can only hold a single object at a time.
3-4. Severed leg. The target's speed is halved and must use a crutch to move; it falls prone after using the Dash action, and has disadvantage on Dexterity checks made to balance.
5-6. Severed head. The target is killed.

This roll assumes a humanoid physiology. A severed arm or leg can be restored with a regenerate spell or similar magic.

Quicksilver golems are crafted from liquid metal and can be found in the service of powerful alchemists. It has a featureless, mirror-like surface that occasionally ripples.
In combat, a quicksilver golem forms multiple atom-sharp blades that slash with lightning speed and leaves liquid metal in the bloodstream of its foes. It reforms very rapidly from any kind of damage, and cannot be killed. Even if it rendered unconscious with acid damage, it will reform. The most thorough way of dealing with a quicksilver golem is to completely immerse it in acid, which will indefinitely incapacitate it.
