Hammer and Anvil (Ex) Whenever a forge golem makes a successful grapple check to damage a creature it is already grappling, that creature takes damage as if hit by the golem’s slam attack. A forge golem may deal this same amount of damage to an object in its possession as a standard action.
Heat (Su) A forge golem’s body generates intense heat, dealing 1d6 points of fire damage with its touch. Whenever a creature hits the forge golem with a natural weapon or unarmed strike, the creature takes this same fire damage.
Immunity to Magic (Ex)A forge golem is immune to any spell or spell-like ability that allows spell resistance. In addition, certain spells and effects function differently against the creature, as noted below.
• A magical attack that deals cold damage slows the golem (as the slow spell) for 2d6 rounds (no save).
• A magical attack that deals fire damage hastes the golem (as the haste spell) for 2d6 rounds.
• A quench spell damages the forge golem as if the golem were a creature with the fire subtype. It also slows the golem (as the slow spell) for 2d6 rounds and causes the golem to lose its heat special attack for as long as the golem is slowed by any means.
A forge golem is a bulky construct whose hollow chest cavity contains a furnace and anvil. Most forge golems also have a bellows built somewhere into their frame. All can be used as ordinary forges if instructed to remain still and refrain from attacking smiths who make use of their fires.
Like most golems, a forge golem cannot speak. It makes no sound other than the grinding of stone against stone when it moves. A forge golem is 9 feet tall and weighs roughly 2,000 pounds.
