Orcish Warclops (3pp)

Made from the severed limbs and ruined bodies of dozens of creatures, this crude construct is stitched together with cord and held together with chain. It stumbles about in a fury on three legs, flailing about with three mangled arms. Its grotesque head bellows in unintelligible rage as it gazes about with a single, over-sized eye.

Destructive Frenzy (Ex)

If a orcish warclops takes damage, on its next turn it can take a free move action before making a full attack action. Doing so, however, causes the construct to take 2d6 points of damage. This damage bypasses the orcish warclops’ damage reduction.

Immunity to Magic (Ex)

An orcish warclops is immune to any spell or spell-like ability that allows spell resistance. In addition, certain spells and effects function differently agains the creature as noted below.

  • An orcish warclops is made of flesh that is still partially alive. It can be affected by cure and inflict spells, as well as both positive and negative channeled energy.
  • Casting rage on an orcish warclops allows it to use its destructive frenzy ability each round without taking damage, even if it did not take any damage before its turn.
  • Spells that cause blindness work normally on an orcish warclops, and it takes a -2 penalty on all such saving throws. Such effects immediately end if the orcish warclops takes damage and uses it destructive frenzy ability, even if the effect was permanent.

Poorly Made (Ex)

An orcish warclops is not particularly well constructed. If an orcish warclops takes a critical hit, one of its arms or legs is severed. If it loses a leg, its speed is reduced to 30 feet and its CMD versus trip attempts is reduced to 21. If it loses an arm, it is reduced to 2 slam attacks each round. If it takes a second critical hit, it loses the other appendage. If it takes a third critical hit, it is destroyed.


Environment temperate hills, mountains, or underground
Organization solitary or gang (2-4)
Treasure none

Built by the most powerful shamans and witch doctors among the orc tribes, these savage constructs are a testament to the ferocity of the orc. Made from the severed limbs and mangled bodies of their foes, these constructs are quite crude, but they are nonetheless deadly, flailing about with their three gigantic arms. Paying homage to their cruel and powerful god, these constructs have only one eye, but each have three legs and three arms. Some say that there are even more powerful versions in the wilderness with even more arms and legs (but never more than one eye).

In battle, these constructs are unleashed on the foes of the orcs, who often give their creations a wide berth so as to avoid their wrath. Most orcs have learned from previous experience that should the shaman or witchdoctor controlling the construct be killed, that the creation will run amok. Despite their bloodlust, most would still prefer that such unchecked fury be spent against their enemies.
