Golem Generator

Techmancery is not treated as science or engineering, but magic. Creating advanced Techmantic contraptions such as golems is a mystical, personal process. There are standard construction procedures, but each Techmancer and Mekanima add their own touch to the end result. The Golem Generator provides a way to portray the differences. You can use golems from the creature list as a base and then roll random modifications from the tables. The generator is divided into six parts. Each category is rolled once with d66.

Appearance describes the general look of the golem with a single adjective.

Details bring up two special features which stand up from the whole. They can provide +2 TN or -2 TN under special circumstances.

Maker gives a short description of the golem's creator. This can give it further flavor.

Flaw is a weakness inherent to the golem. It is a result of bad design or wear and tear – some golems can be centuries old, but still in use.

Advantage is a special quality inherent to a particular golem.

For example, let's say a GM is looking to flavor a Light War Golem. He rolls 14 ending with spider-like appearance. Details are 22 – human-like face and 41 – flame-blasting exhausts. Maker is a treacherous plotter (12). The golem is flawed with a slow turn speed (64), but it has an exotic sensor (15) embedded within.

As a result, the GM would now have a spider-like golem with a human face – say, the face of a saint or the Golden Lord – at front. When the golem moves, it lets out blasts of fire from exhausts around the body. The face sounds creepy, so that could give +2 TN to intimidation. The fiery exhausts, on the other hand, make sneaking in the dark harder, giving -2 TN to Stealth. The golem was created by a treacherous plotter, so it has clearly multiple back gates and hidden controls – a clear plot hook, if necessary. Since the golem turns slowly, it would take one action in combat to change facing. On the other hand, the exotic sensor could be a motion detector, giving it -1D to Perception checks when noticing moving targets.
