Creature Description Generator 6 - Golems

Creature Description Generator Volume 6 - Golems

In Jewish folklore, a golem is an animated anthropomorphic being, magically created from clay or mud. Many others have been made from other materials, such as flesh, or clockwork. They all follow the commands of their creator or others that use the correct method, sometimes literally. The golem is, essentially a created tool. Some people treat them as slaves or worse, whilst others will give them the same respect they would another sentient or being. This can vary from person to person and culture to culture

All these aspects and more are covered in this volume of the CDG. The CDG (Creature Description Generator) range is designed with a fantasy setting in mind, but can easily be used for sci-fi or modern/horror settings.
