Pathfinder: Gingerbread Golem

Golem, Gingerbread

This three-story tall monstrosity is flat like a cookie, but bends and twists with ease as it stalks across the ground. Its cakelike, vaguely humanoid body is etched with runes, and three enormous gumdrops dot its chest. An irrepressibly cheery smile of sugar icing stretches across its face.

Special Abilities


Gumdrop Powered (Ex) A gingerbread golem is powered by magical energy stored in three small gumdrops on the front of its body. For each button removed, the golem takes a –1 penalty to its attack rolls, CMB, CMD, damage reduction, natural armor bonus, and saving throws. A gumdrop button can be removed with a DC 25 Strength check or a successful sunder attempt.
Immunity to Magic (Ex) A gingerbread 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 fire damage slows a gingerbread golem (as the slow spell) for 2d6 rounds (no save).
  • Exposure to the spells aqueous orb APG, geyser APG, or hydraulic torrent APG causes the golem to gain vulnerability to bludgeoning damage for 1 round.

Spice Breath (Ex) As a standard action once every 1d4 rounds, a gingerbread golem can emit a 30-foot cone of coarsely-ground cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. A creature within the cone’s area suffers 15d6 points of slashing damage; additionally, the creature suffers a –10 penalty to Stealth checks for the next 1d3 days due to the cloying scent of the spices. A successful DC 17 Reflex save reduces this damage by half and negates the penalty to Stealth. A gingerbread golem can use this ability once every 1d4 rounds. The save DC is Constitution-based.
