A statue carved from ice. If a human wanders into the territory of one of these monsters, they appear out of seemingly nowhere and attack mercilessly. It is unclear what exactly drives this aggression, but since they don’t seem to stray from the ruins of ancient peoples, it is likely they originally created to serve as sentinels. Their ice bodies save them from many of the dangers that living creatures face in the coldest of regions, but they are notably vulnerable to heat. Apply a little fire and you will be able to see them melt before your eyes.

Variants

Unlike most constructs, an ice sculpture carries within its form a spark of intelligence. This is hardly enough to grant the construct the ability to speak or otherwise engage in free will, but it is enough for it to carry out more complex tactics than most constructs are capable of. It’s not unusual for an ice sculpture to possess different feats or use different weapons.
