This golem has a humanoid body made from lead. A lead golem can be fashioned in any manner, just like an iron golem, which it normally resembles. The golem is bluish-white in color.
A lead golem is 12 feet tall and weighs about 5,000 pounds.
A lead golem cannot speak or make any vocal noise, nor does it have any distinguishable odor. It moves with a ponderous but smooth gait. Each step causes the floor to tremble unless it is on a thick, solid foundation.
Breath Weapon (Su): 10-foot cube, cloud of diseased lead gas lasting 1 round, full-round action once every 1d4+6 rounds; inhaled, incubation period 1d4 days, damage 1d3 Con and 1d3 Int, Fortitude DC 16 negates. The save DC is Constitution-based.
Immunity to Magic (Ex): A lead golem is immune to any spell or spell-like ability that allows spell resistance. In addition, certain spells and effects function differently against the creature, as noted below.
A lead golem is affected normally by rust attacks, such as that of a rust monster or a rusting grasp spell.
Lead Body: A lead golem is constructed mostly of lead, and its aura cannot be detected by detect magic. Furthermore, any object stored inside the golem (see below) cannot be detected by detect magic.
Storage Space A lead golem has a hollow within its body which can store items as a barrel. While the golem is functioning, the space can only be accessed via the password which is determined by the creator upon creation. If the golem is destroyed, the item can be found among the ruins.
Acid Immunity: Lead golems take no damage from acid. The lead golem is enchanted to resist acid, and this adds to its natural resistance to corrosion.
A lead golem’s body is sculpted from 5,000 pounds of pure lead, smelted with rare tinctures and admixtures costing at least 10,000 gp. Assembling the body requires a DC 20 Craft (armorsmithing) check or a DC 20 Craft (weaponsmithing) check.
