Големы - это души умерших, заключенные в драгоценный камень. Они не помнят о своих предыдущих жизнях, но сохраняют хитрость, знания и личные качества тех духов. Они полностью преданы своему создателю и выполнят любой его приказ. Как правило, они связаны со станцией, но в неумелых руках они могут быть разрушительными из-за их устойчивости к повреждениям.
Их выносливость и послушание делают их идеальными телохранителями, охранниками и инженерами. Благодаря своей природе создания, они часто помогают в исследовательских областях, но из-за своей медлительности, единоличной преданности и недоступности редко используются в медицине и командовании.
Големы могут быть сделаны из нескольких металлов и минералов, или же это могут быть адамантиновые големы, созданные непосредственно из слизи.
Големы создаются путем порождения и заполнения оболочки.
- Существует два способа создания оболочек:
- Впрыскивание 1 единицы плазмы в экстракт адамантиновой слизи, затем использование полученного адамантинового бруска для формирования оболочки.
- На свободном корабле големов используйте диск создания големов, чтобы напечатать одного на автолате.
- После этого использование 10 минералов любого типа на полученной оболочке завершит ее, посылая предупреждение призракам и наблюдателям, которые могут вселиться в нее по желанию, чтобы породить голема этого типа минерала.
- Golems created from Adamantine bars will serve whoever finished the shell, while golems created with the autolathe on the free golem ship will have free will.
Golems are spaceworthy and tough as rock. Some are immune to heat, cold, electrical shocks, bleeding, embedding and viruses - this depends on the mineral type. In exchange, they are slow, cannot wear uniforms, masks, gloves, exosuits or shoes. However, they don't need to. Golems don't need a mask to use internals, and the pockets, ID, belt and exosuit storage slots can be used as normal. They are also free to use hats and backpacks, which can be used to distinguish them if their Creator has assigned them to a particular Department (Such as Security or Engineering).
Their armour is incredibly tough, and will reduce damage to less than half its strength. Their punches are stronger than humans', and have a chance to stun. Their rocky fingers also can't fit in the trigger guards of guns, so they can only use melee weapons, or modified Kinetic Accelerators.
They can enter space and wade into fires without concern, making them very versatile during emergencies such as plasma fires or hull breaches. Their loyalty to their master is absolute, so anything they do will be the responsibility of their creator: be wary of harming humans, as the crew will have no qualms about exterminating you and then your master.
Golems can be stunned in the same ways a human can, with the exception of syringe guns due to their thick skin; they take damage normally, after it is reduced by their armor, but they do not bleed. When in crit, instead of suffocating, they'll take brute damage over time, and cannot give or receive CPR.
Types of Golems
Golems gain traits from the minerals they're made of:
|Файл:Adamantine Golem.png||Adamantine||Adamantine Golems have special vocal cords that can resonate messages to all other golems, great for coordinating them. The first Free Golems spawn as this species, otherwise you'll need to do a bunch of Xenobiology to get the required Adamantium bars.|
|Iron||Iron Golems are the average golem, and do not have any additional traits.|
|Silver||Silver Golems pack heavier punches, granting them a higher chance of stunning. They are also magic immune!|
|Gold||Gold Golems are faster than an average golem, but are less armored. Yes, gold is heavy, but golems are magical and don't have to make sense.|
|Uranium||Uranium Golems constantly emit radiation, poisoning organic lifeforms nearby. Other golems are safe.|
|Файл:Titanium golem.png||Titanium||Titanium Golems are more resistant to heat and are immune to ash storms in Lavaland.|
|Файл:Plastitanium golem.png||Plastitanium||Plastitanium Golems are, like Titanium Golems, heat resistant and immune to ash storms. On top of that, they are not harmed by lava.|
|Plasma||Plasma Golems are controlled chaos: they can self-ignite themselves and, if hot enough while burning, they'll blow up! They do not take damage from fires but as mentioned before, blowing up is instant death. Great for suicide bombing your foolish samurais.|
|Diamond||Diamond Golems have extremely high armor, making them hard to damage.|
|Файл:Plasteel golem.png||Plasteel||Plasteel Golems are even slower than normal golems, but they deal higher damage when punching (12-21), and are much less affected by stuns. They also magnetically attach to surfaces and and won't float without gravity, and cannot have their positions swapped with other beings even on help intent.|
|Файл:Sand golem.png||Sand||Sand Golems are unaffected by physical or kinetic bullets and are highly resistant to all other forms of brute damage, but they take triple burn damage from any source. On death, they'll turn into an unrevivable pile of sand.|
|Файл:Glass golem.png||Glass||Glass Golems reflect lasers and energy shots, and are highly resistant to burn damage, but they take triple brute damage from any source. When dying, they shatter and cannot be recovered in any way.|
|Файл:Bluespace golem.png||Bluespace Polycrystals||Bluespace Golems are extremely unstable and will randomly teleport when hit by anything more threatening than a hug. On top of that, they can also trigger the random teleportation manually, over a much wider area.|
|Файл:Wood golem.png||Wood||Wood Golems are the symbol of the collaboration between Podpeople and Free Golems. They lack the heat protection of golems, can be set on fire, and are less armoured, but they feed and regenerate when they are near a source of light, and starve and wither when in the darkness, much like normal podpeople.|
|Файл:Alloy golem.png||Alien Alloy||Alloy Golems are made with materials scavenged from abductor ships, which grant them greater speed and constant regeneration. Due to the alien nature of the materials, however, they are not able to communicate by speaking. They will, instead, send telepathic messages that can be heard by other alloy golems or abductors.|
|Файл:Bananium golem.png||Bananium||Bananium Golems are what a true clown dreams to be. They HONK constantly, willing or not; they have an inherently loud and funny voice, their punches hardly deal any damage, and when damaged they bleed slippery bananas. Make these at the risk of your own sanity.|
|Файл:Plastic golem.png||Plastic||Plastic Golems are very stretchy, and can thus ventcrawl as long as they aren't wearing or holding items. Due to material affinity, they can also pass through plastic flaps.|
|Runic Metal||Runic Golems are loosely affiliated with the Blood Cult, and draw their powers from the same source, although they aren't necessarily their allies. They can Jaunt, allowing them to cross walls for a time, they can cast an Abyssal Gaze onto a victim, chilling and blinding them temporarily, and can permanently Dominate animals and monsters, turning them to their (and their master's) side.|
|Файл:Cloth golem.png||Cloth||Created from cloth or medical gauze, these Golems are extremely flammable, and don't need to be doused in fuel to burn. But if they aren't burnt to death, they turn into a messy pile of cloth, that reanimates after some time, fully reviving them. The pile can of course be burnt or destroyed to prevent this. They are also magic immune!|
|Файл:Clockwork golem.png||Clockwork||Created by Clockwork cultists, these golems are faster and less armored. Unless the herald's beacon is active, they will turn into a pile of scrap on death.|
|Bronze||As a Bronze Golem you are very resistant to loud noises, and make loud noises if something hard hits you. However this ability does hurt your hearing.|
|Bone||As a Bone Golem you have a powerful spell that lets you chill your enemies with fear, and milk heals you! Just make sure to watch out for bone-hurting juice.|
|Cardboard||As a Cardboard Golem you aren't very strong, but you are a bit quicker and can easily create more brethren by using cardboard on yourself.|
|Leather||As a Leather Golem you are flammable, but you can grab things with incredible ease, allowing all your grabs to start at a strong level.|
|Durathread||As a Durathread Golem your strikes will cause your targets to start choking, but your woven body won't withstand fire very well.|
|Snow||Snow golems have slightly less armor than regular golems and take triple burn damage. They are immune to snowstorms, can create snowballs and have cryokinesis powers. On death they turn into a pile of snow and a carrot.|
Free golems were freed from servitude by a scientist they revere as The Liberator. In his infinite and divine wisdom, he set their clan free to travel the stars with a single declaration:
"Yeah go do whatever."
Sometimes one of these ships may end up crashing in Lavaland. These golems, should they wake up from hibernation, will effectively be free of any master, and will usually mine and eventually build their own R&D department. They are peaceful unless disturbed.
Free Golems start with a Golem Creation Disk, which contains a unique autolathe design that creates a Golem Shell, without any need for slimes. Unlike those made in xenobiology, however, golems made from these shells are not enslaved to their creator.
