Gearsman, Recycled

Plates of mismatched metal cover gaps in the burnished brass armor encasing this construct. Exposed wires hang from its creaking joints, and its glowing glass eye appears to be cracked.

A skilled artificer can revitalize a ruined construct by jury-rigging the pieces left intact. The patchwork nature of a recycled construct renders it fragile and leaves key circuitry exposed.

The sample recycled construct above uses a gearsman as the base creature. The sample recycled gearsman is treated as if it received one glitch during construction, reducing its bonus hit points by 5.
