* Maximum of 3 damage dice versus any one attribute.

Rend: A construct must have at least one natural attack in order to use this ability, which does damage equal to the attack + 1 1/2 x its Strength modifier. The cost of this ability is 100 gp.

Swallow Whole: A construct must have Improved Grab in order to use this ability, and it must also have an orifice leading to a hollow chamber in its interior. Constructs may apply constriction damage to a swallowed target if they also have the Constrict ability. If the construct has been made of multiple layers of material, the material that makes up its core is the one that must be used to reference the hardness rating of the "stomach." A construct must have a hollow belly in order to have this ability (see Step 2). See the Monster Manual for complete details. The cost of this ability is 200 gp.

Trample: See the Monster Manual for exact details. The cost of this ability is 100 gp.

Wound: An attack of a construct can be imbued with the wounding ability as outlined in the Dungeon Master’s Guide. One attack is given this ability for each time it is purchased. The cost for this ability is 2000 gp.

STEP 11: CHOOSE FEATS

Constructs do not begin with feats; each feat must be purchased separately. A construct can only have one feat for its first hit die, and then one feat for every three hit dice (like a normal character). A construct must meet all requirements for a feat in order to benefit from it. Please see the Player’s Handbook and/or the Monster Manual for full feat descriptions.

Please note that in order for a construct to have a feat with more than one prerequisite, it must weigh the maximum amount for its size category. For example, a tiny construct must weigh 8 pounds and the materials cost for this extra weight must be paid before it can be given a feat like Improved Critical.

STEP 12: OPTIONAL DEFECTS

No magical process is guaranteed to be successful on every occasion. Defects occur even in the most expensive and powerful constructs. For these problems, however, a discount is offered off the total price of the construct. Steps 1 – 11 must be completed and all costs must be totaled; any discount is then applied to this number. The effects listed for each defect are permanent and cannot be altered.

Apathy: When faced with a combat situation, a construct with this defect has a cumulative 1% chance per round to give up all of its actions and do nothing, even when ordered. The construct will simply remain still. The construct’s master can try to inspire action in the construct with a successful Charisma check (DC 19) if they are within 60 feet. The construct must rest for 1 minute before its apathy chance will reset to 0%. [Note: a construct with this defect cannot have the berserk defect as well.] Discount: 10% off the total price

Berserk: Upon entering combat, a construct with this defect has a cumulative 1% chance per round that it will go berserk and its master will lose control of it. The construct will attack the closest living creature or will attack objects if no creature is within reach. The construct’s master can try to regain control if they are within 60 feet and succeed at a Charisma check (DC 19). The construct must rest for 1 minute before its berserk chance will reset to 0%. [Note: a construct with this defect cannot have the apathy defect as well.] Discount: 10% off the total price

Can’t Run: Constructs with this defect cannot run, and cannot make use of the Trample special ability. Discount: 5% off the total price

Confusion: When faced with a combat situation, a construct with this defect has a cumulative 1% chance per round to become confused in its actions, as per the spell of that name. The construct’s master can try to reissue correct orders with a successful Charisma check (DC 19) if they are within 60 feet. The construct must rest for 1 minute before its confusion chance will reset to 0%. Discount: 10% off the total price

Malformed Limb: This defect only comes into play with constructs that have extra combat-ready limbs added. This defect means that one of the construct’s extra limbs is permanently malformed and cannot be used. Discount: 3% off the total price

Restricted Vision: Constructs with this defect do not gain access to the low-light vision or darkvision that normal constructs possess. They are able to see in normal lighting only; in darkness they are effectively blinded. Discount: 5% off the total price

Susceptibility to Disease: This defect is only found in constructs made out of flesh or bones of some kind. These constructs can contract and suffer the ability damage from any disease that does not target Constitution. Constructs do not heal this damage on their own but must be repaired (a Heal check cannot help). Discount: 2% off the total price

Susceptibility to Mind-Affecting Influences: This defect is only found in constructs that have Wisdom and Intelligence scores. Constructs with this defect can be influenced by mind-affecting spells and abilities; this permanently cancels out their normal immunity. Discount: 4% off the total price

Turn/Rebuke Undead: This defect is only found in constructs made out of flesh or bones of some kind. The defect makes these constructs vulnerable to being turned and/or rebuked, as though they were undead. Discount: 2% off the total price

Vulnerability: Constructs with this defect take double damage from one specific special attack. Possibilities include the ki strike attack, the smite ability, or one type of magic spell (fire, cold, electricity, sonic, acid). Discount: 3% off the total price
