A humanoid automation that appears to be made from wood stands before you, holding a spear and a shield. It regards you from strange, green eyes.
Stocks were some of the first attempts by the deva to create living constructs (although they were soon followed by the gears, and graftlings). The devan mages soon perfected stocks, and were able to produce them in mass. Thousands of stocks were never activated, and stood in underground storage rooms for millenniums, waiting to be switched on.
Stocks rarely hesitate in combat, attacking viciously, relying on their damage reduction and fast-healing to save them. However, if badly wounded, a stock will attempt to flee.
