Golems are magically created automatons of great power. Constructing one involves great constructive skill and mighty soul binding magic.

Golems are animated by souls bound into the body of the construct. The process of creating the golem binds the unwilling spirit to the artificial body and subjects it to the will of the golem’s creator.


Golems are tenacious in combat and prodigiously strong as well. Being mindless, they do nothing without orders from their creators. They follow instructions explicitly and are incapable of any strategy or tactics. They are emotionless in combat and cannot be provoked.

A golem’s creator can command it if the golem is within 60 feet and can see and hear its creator. If uncommanded, a golem usually follows its last instruction to the best of its ability, though if attacked it returns the attack. The creator can give the golem a simple command to govern its actions in his or her absence. The golem’s creator can order the golem to obey the commands of another person (who might in turn place the golem under someone else’s control, and so on), but the golem’s creator can always resume control over his creation by commanding the golem to obey him alone.

Immunity to Magic (Ex): Golems have immunity to most magical and supernatural effects, except when otherwise noted.


The cost to create given for each golem includes the cost of the physical body and all the materials and spell components that are consumed or become a permanent part of the golem. Creating a golem is essentially similar to creating any sort of magic item. However, a golem’s body includes costly material components that may require some extra preparation. The golem’s creator can assemble the body or hire someone else to do the job. The builder must have the appropriate skill, which varies with the golem variety.

Completing the golem’s creation requires a soul to be bound into it on the final day. This is done by the Constructive Binding ability of a Binder.

Note: Each soul has different effects on golems.
