As a full-round action, an iron colossus can transform its legs into a massive, destructive track. Its speed becomes 80 ft., it can’t be tripped, and it gains a trample attack that deals 4d8+30 damage. It loses its stomp attack. It can resume its base form as a full-round action.
An iron colossus emits a 30-foot-radius cloud of poisonous gas, exposing creatures that start their turn in this area.
Not only is an iron colossus immune to fire, but when targeted or hit by a spell or attack that would deal fire damage, it heals half the fire damage it would be dealt.
Spells with the fire descriptor and fire effects are unaffected by this field.
An iron colossus’s ballistae don’t provoke attacks of opportunity, and they reload themselves at the start of the colossus’s turn.
Environment any land
Standing 80 feet high and weighing 500 tons, iron colossi are the ultimate weapons of war.
