Sparkling as light refracts off thousands of facets, the crystalline construct stands guard as his master continues work. His gleaming eyes ensure no intruders may interrupt the task at hand.
A crystalline construct stands 9 feet tall and weighs roughly 1800 pounds. Its body is pure crystal, its particular form decided by its crafter. They most commonly appear humanoid, although artistic creators have built spider-like forms or even tauric hybrids. Built from a variety of crystals, these constructs are typically created by those psions with an affinity for crystals.
A crystalline construct does nothing without explicit orders from its creator. It follows instructions literally and is incapable of any strategy or tactics. Crystalline constructs don’t use weapons, even if ordered to, but always strike with their fists.
A crystalline construct’s creator can command it if the crystalline construct is within 60 feet and can see and hear its creator. If un-commanded, a crystalline construct usually follows its last instruction to the best of its ability, though if attacked it returns the attack. Its creator can give a crystalline construct a simple command to govern its actions in his or her absence.
Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the crystalline construct must hit with its slam attack. A crystalline construct can use this ability only on a target that is at least one size smaller than itself.
Crystal Shard (Ps): A crystalline construct may use crystal shard as a psi-like ability once per round with a swift action as a 6th level manifester. The crystals fired from this ability appear to sail back to the construct as if attracted by an unknown force after impact.
Construct Traits: A crystalline construct has immunity to poison, sleep effects, paralysis, stunning, disease, death effects, necromancy effects, mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, phantasms, patterns, and morale effects), and any effect that requires a Fortitude save unless it also works on objects or is harmless. It is not subject to critical hits, non-lethal damage, ability damage, ability drain, fatigue, exhaustion, or energy drain. It cannot heal damage, but it can be repaired.
A crystalline construct’s body is constructed from mundane crystal with a total weight of at least 3,000 pounds and costing at least 5,000 gp. Assembling the body requires a DC 20 Craft (sculpting) or Craft (gemcutting) check.
