Colossus[edit]

"Relationship is like a rope... if you cut it and tie it back together, it brings both ends of the rope closer to each other."

Physical Description[edit]

Colossus are construct creatures usually made of stone. They are all anthropogenic and shape in size, almost like an unfinished human.
They look like large humans but lack any reproductive organs. Usually, somewhere on their body,
typically on their shoulders or on their lower arms, is a weapon which the colossus can fire as an action.

History[edit]

Constructs are either animated objects or any type of artificially constructed creatures.
Most constructs are non-intelligent automatons with neither a soul nor a purpose beyond service to their creator.
Because few constructs are truly alive, usually operated only by a "spark" of life, most are immune to attacks that target the living.
Colossus are familiar to constructs; statues that are much bigger than life size that have been brought to life with powerful magic or by
extreamly creative minds, able to create the most innovative machines and creations.

Society[edit]

The Treaty of Thronehold declared colossus, those constructs that are deemed truely alive, to be free creatures, just like warforged, two years ago, and the living constructs have had little time to create a society or culture beyond the limited soldier culture they possessed during the Last War. What society exists among warforged is largely a remnant of the command structures of the armies of the Last War. Colossi are thus seen as a sign of war and usually tend to be seen more negatively. Inventors, artificers, and curious common people might accept your presence, but being a colossus who manages to find true acceptance and respect among other creatures is rather rare.

Colossus Names[edit]

Genderless because of no anatomy: The only limit is your imagination... Unity, Sekkya, Ushiku, Kannon, Jesus Christ...

Each creature in a 20-foot-radius sphere centered on that point must make a Dexterity saving throw against your spell save DC. The sphere spreads around corners. A creature takes 35 (10d8) fire damage and 35 (10d8) necrotic damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. You can only use Hellfire Orb at 7th level.

Random Height and Weight[edit]

Base
Height
Height
Modifier*
Base
Weight
Weight
Modifier**
4′ 0″ +1d20 120 lb. × (2*(heightmod^2)) lb.

*Height = base height + height modifier
**Weight = base weight + (height modifier × weight modifier)

(e.g. Size is 4 + 1d20(rolled 14) = 18 feet. --> Weight is 120*(14^2)*2 = 120*196*2 = 47040 lb. :) yes you are heavy... very heavy.)
