This article is about the construct type. Golems, like robots and clockworks, have been generically described as "automatons" but are otherwise dissimilar from the specific automaton construct subtype.

A golem is a magically created construct most often animated by infusing a lifeless form with an elemental spirit, generally an earth elemental. A golem is mindless and serves at its creator's command;1 creators of golems are known as golemwrights.2


A hammer that has been magically enhanced to particularly damage golems.

There are many types of golem that can be created by skilled golemwrights, including the following selected examples.
