Pathfinder: Aberrant Fruitcake

Ah, what a wonderful time of year it is. Holiday music is being promoted to us on our devices. Our family is bugging us to come over. So today, I thought I would top that off with everyone’s favorite holiday food: a fruitcake. This year, why not show the holidays how much you love these parts of it by sticking a sword right through it. It is so therapeutic to be able to do that from time to time.

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.

Gingerbread Golem CR 11

XP 12,800
N Gargantuan construct
Init –1; Senses darkvision 60 ft., low-light vision; Perception +0


Defense


AC 20, touch 5, flat-footed 20 (–1 Dex, +15 natural, –4 size)
hp 142 (15d10+60)
Fort +5, Ref +4, Will +5

Statistics


Str 28, Dex 8, Con —, Int —, Wis 11, Cha 1
Base Atk +15; CMB +28; CMD 37


Ecology


Environment any non-tropical
Organization solitary
Treasure none


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.

Pathfinder: Half-Faerie Dragon and A Special Christmas Surprise

Jon Brazer Enterprises has been announcing our upcoming all week long. So far we announced the Book of Magic: Signature Spells 2 (just released this morning) and Shadowsfall: Favored Class Options in September, Shadowsfall: Shadow Plane Player’s Companion and Book of Heroic Races: Seedlings for October, and Book of Friends and Foes: Ratfolk of the Ruins and Shadowsfall: Archetypes for November. For December, we will be releasing Book of Heroic Races: Half-Faerie Dragons. Todd Stewart, the author on this project, is known for a number of projects from Paizo including Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Book of the Damned vol 3: Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Dragon Empire Gazetteer, and of course The Inner Sea World Guide. We turned his mind loose on the joyous pranksters that are the half-faerie dragons. These halfling-sized men and women will flutter their way into your games to cause untold havoc and hysterical mayhem. Armed with magic items like the bag of awesome and the cloak of the happy fool and casting spells such as butterfly swarm and everchanging curse, you will find yourself enjoying every moment of reading this book and playing these curious creatures. This race, which will go live on December 6th, will surely Enhance Your World and Your Game.

As the weather turns white and snowy, we have a Christmas surprise for all of you in store. On December 20 we will be bringing you something we are not quite ready to talk about yet, but have no fear. Game Masters and players will have something to enjoy, whether they are naughty or nice. Be sure to leave out gingerbread cookies for your favorite publisher and you might find something you will look forward to opening in your virtual stocking.

We hope you have enjoyed this week as much as we have. We look forward to bringing these book your way and we hope that you will enjoy them as much as we had creating them.
