    Default Steam Golems

    In my homebrew request thread, I was advised to start different threads for all my creations. To gauge how that goes, here are my first creations: Steam Golems!

    Steam Blood(Ex)
    Inside of the golem is a series of pipes filled with superheated water. When the golem is severely damaged, the pipes can break, spilling the steam onto its enemies. Whenever the golem is dealt 15 or more damage in a single attack, it deals 1d6+2 fire damage to the attacker. For every time that this ability is triggered on the golem, its Steam Cloud ability deals one less damage, until the golem is healed for the triggering amount of HP, for a minimum of one damage.

    Steam Cloud(Ex)
    The golem’s steam must be released somewhere, and so the golem is often wreathed in steam. This steam cloud has a 20ft radius, and each creature inside the cloud takes 1d4 points of fire damage every round (excluding other steam golems). Everyone inside of the cloud has concealment, unless they are within five feet of each other.

    Magic Immunity(Ex)
    Steam Golems are immune to all spells and spell-like abilities that allow spell resistance. In addition, certain spells and effects function differently against the creature, as noted below.

    Any spell that deals cold damage has that damage doubled, and effects the steam golem as thought it had been slowed.

    Any magical attack against a steam golem that deals fire damage heals 1 point of damage for every 3 points of damage it would otherwise deal. If the amount of healing would cause the golem to exceed its full normal hit points, it gains any excess as temporary hit points. For example, a steam golem hit by the breath weapon of a red dragon heals 7 points of damage if the attack would have dealt 22 points of damage. A steam golem golem gets no saving throw against magical attacks that deal fire damage.

    Bore Flesh(Ex)
    Whenever a guard golem hits with both drills against a single opponent in one round, it automatically begins a grapple. Each round that the golem maintains this grapple, it deals the base damage of one drill, plus 1d2 Con, Str, and Dex damage. The golem can still make attacks outside of the grapple while grappling using this method, however, it loses the use of one its drill attacks.

    Steam Blast(Ex)
    Once every 1d4+2 rounds, a guard golem can release a blast of superheated steam to broil its enemies alive. This blast can take the form of a 120ft line or 60ft cone, each of which deals 4d6 fire damage to anybody caught in the blast zone. For two rounds after this, the guard golem does not have the use of its Steam Cloud ability.

    Jump Vents(Ex)
    Once per encounter, a Scout Golem can release a large amount of steam at once, and blast itself forward. As a standard action, it moves forward up to 120ft can make a charge attack against the person it charges, without any AC penalty. For three rounds after using this, the golem does not have the use of its Steam Cloud ability

    The general golem’s Steam Cloud ability does magical fire damage to other steam golems equal to half of what it would normally deal, triggering the steam golem’s magic immunity fire healing. The general golem also receives the effect of this ability.

    Just nitpicking here, but generally for a steam engine, the entire thing is self-contained so that you don't have to keep refilling the water.

    The steam cloud thing is a great idea, but I'd have it as an at-will ability, rather than always on, for flavor reasons.

    Otherwise, these look great! If someone ends up running a Victorian/ magitech game, these would fit right in.

    when you first see this, copy this into your signature and subtract 1 from it.

    If you can't do it with a sword, do it with a fireball. If you can't do it with a fireball, it isn't worth doing.

    I don't see where I put in that you needed to keep refilling them, unless you mean for the losing the Steam Cloud ability for a number of rounds. That's just something flavorful I think.

    I think having it on at all times is better, though I could understand why it would be an at-will ability... I shall ponder this.
