SPECIAL ABILITIES

Adamantine Strike (Ex)

An adamantine golem’s slam attacks are treated as an adamantine weapon for the purposes of damage reduction.

Destructive Strike (Ex)

An adamantine golem’s slam attacks threaten a critical hit on a 18, 19 or 20. In addition, whenever an adamantine golem scores a critical hit, it deals 6d10+19 points of damage to the target’s armor or shield in addition to the normal damage, as if it had also made a successful sunder combat maneuver.

Earthquake (Su)

An adamantine golem can cause the ground to erupt around it within a 30-ft.-radius. Creatures within the area of effect take 8d6 points of earth damage and are inflicted with the Weighted status effect (Reflex save DC 21 for half damage and negates the status effect). Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana or Technology DC 23).

Haste (Su)

After it has engaged in at least 1 round of combat, an adamantine golem can haste itself once per day as a free action. The effect lasts 3 rounds and is otherwise the same as the spell.

Lava Blast (Su)

An adamantine golem shoots out a blast of lava from its forehead within 30 feet. The adamantine golem must make a ranged touch attack to hit, and if the ray hits, it deals 16d6 points of fire damage and the target must make a Fortitude save (DC 24) or be inflicted with Burning and Entrangled status effects. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 7th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana or Technology DC 29).

Powerful Blows (Ex)

An adamantine golem inflicts one and a half times its Strength modifier and threatens a critical hit on a 18–20 with its slam attacks.

Rock Throw (Su)

Adamantine golem throws a huge boulder and hurls it at a foe. Adamantine golem makes a ranged touch attack roll against a target within 30 feet. If the attack hits, he deals 3d6+11 points of earth damage and the target must make a Fortitude save (DC 20) or be inflicted with Slow status for 1d4 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 3rd level spell (Knowledge: Arcana or Technology DC 19).

Shockwave (Su)

An adamantine golem can cause the ground to quake that ripples from it within a 30-ft.-radius spread. Creatures within the area of effect take 8d6 points of earth damage, inflicted with the Weighted status effect, and are pushed back 5 feet per 10 damage sustained. A successful Reflex save (DC 20) reduces damage by half, negates the status effect, and stops being pushed back. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana or Technology DC 23).

Slow (Ex)

Slam – injury; save Fort DC 32; frequency 1/round for 8 rounds; slow status effect; cure 1 save.

Spark Shower (Su)

3/day, an adamantine golem can cause a shower of sparks to erupt out of one of the runes on its body. These sparks erupt in a 30-ft.-cone and those in the area of effect take 10d6 fire and 10d6 lightning damage, a successful Reflex for half damage. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 8th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana or Technology DC 31).
