Iron Giants
IronGiant Family.png
A hulking metal colossus imbued with life by some eldritch powers. The sheer force of its ponderous footsteps akin to small earthquakes, with mighty swings of o'ersized arms does it rain down wanton destruction upon all below.
What grievance does it bear against our kind, to hunt us with such unrelenting fervor?
Is it even capable of thought, or does it merely attend the orders of some nefarious master?
What is certain is this: these constructs present perhaps the most immediate threat to our livelihood.


Iron Giants lie dormant in scrap heaps until they detect movement. Although they are slow, they chase relentlessly. If their target manages to escape or is slain, the iron giant slowly returns to its resting place unless another hapless adventurer crosses its path.
