The Golem of Prague is a large roughly hewn statue whose artistic style is somewhat alien. Inscribed upon it is "Judah Loew, Prague, 15xx" with the last two digits un-readable. On it's robe in Hebrew is the following:
"Power bringeth destruction; beware, lest it be unleashed."
"He who will find the secret of my life at his feet, him will I serve until beyond time.
"He who shall evoke me in the 17th century, beware, for I cannot by fire be destroyed.
"He who shall evoke me in the 18th century, beware, for I cannot by fire or by water be destroyed.
"He who evokes me in the 19th century, beware, for I cannot by fire or by water or by force be destroyed.
"He who in the 20th century shall dare evoke me, beware, for neither by fire, nor water, nor force, nor anything by man created can I be destroyed.
"He who in the 21st century evokes me must be of God's hand himself because on this earth the person of man existeth no more."
Hidden in a small compartment at the Golem's right foot is a scroll with the word 'emet' (truth) written on it. Placing it in the Golem's mouth brings it to life as your servitor, and it will serve until your death at which point it wonders the world aimlessly, or goes back into hiding as a statue awaiting a new century, and greater invulnerability. The Golem truly wants to be awoken in the 21st century when it will be virtually impossible to destroy. Nor does it seem entirely bound to be inanimate as it murders several people, but only when no one is looking. It wants to be thought of as a statue until it is only vulnerable to divine intervention. It always returns to it's pedestal after being ordered on a mission to avoid suspicion. The Golem appears to understand most languages but is incapable of speaking.Improved Grab (Ex):
The Golem may make a Grapple Check against a being of any Size Class without provoking an Attack of Opportunity.Constrict (Ex):
The Golem does 6d6+30 damage with a successful Grapple Check.Unstoppable (Ex):
The Golems attacks are considered Adamantine for purposes of ignoring Damage Reduction, and they ignore Hardness.Invulnerability (Ex):
As the spell to awaken the Golem is cast it becomes increasingly harder to destroy. If awakened in the 17th century it is immune to Fire damage unless it comes from a divine source (i.e. anyone with a Divine Rank or a Major Artifact created by one).
If awakened in the 18th century it similarly becomes immune to Acid and Cold damage.
If awakened in the 19th century it similarly becomes immune to physical and Force damage.
If awakened in the 20th century it similarly becomes immune to any weapon or item created by mortals (in other words magic items or even nuclear weapons).
If awakened in the 21st century the Golem is immune to all damage that does not have a divine origin. An artifact or Divine rank is required to harm it.Statue (Ex):
The Golem can remain perfectly still for as long as it wants. Unless someone knows what it is they are incapable of telling it from the average statue.Obeyance:
Whoever finds the scroll hidden in the Golems foot and places it in it's mouth becomes it's Master. The Golem must obey his orders, though it usually finds a way to twist those orders to bring it's master misfortune (and it will not obey orders to leave). The Golem will serve until his death before going on a rampage temporarily and then fleeing to await being found again in a later age so it can gain ever more power.Combat:
The Golem kills in secret. Anyone alone in a room with it is at risk, as it may murder you if it senses you are a problem for it's master or a threat to it. Preferably it will be done in a way that doesn't imply the statue did it, such as strangulation or the use of an improvised weapon so as to avoid blood getting on the statue. Once revealed the Golem simply becomes a slowly walking engine of destruction, quietly beating to death anything in it's path.
