Ethereal Fists (Su)

A crystal golem’s fists reach simultaneously into the Ethereal and Material planes, allowing it to deal normal damage with its slam attack to ethereal creatures. The miss chance due to etherealness doesn’t apply (other miss chances, such as from concealment“>concealment, still apply).

Immunity to Magic (Ex)

A crystal golem is immune to spells or spell-like abilities that allows spell resistance. Certain spells and effects function differently against the creature, as noted below.

  • An entropic grasp spell deals 50% more damage to the golem and slows it (as the slow spell) for 3 rounds (no saving throw).
  • A magical attack that deals fire damage ends any slow effect on the golem and heals 1 point of damage for every 3 points of damage the attack would otherwise deal.

Psychic Amplification (Su)

Each time a creature within 30 feet of a crystal golem uses a mind-affecting spell or spell-like ability, the caster can choose to double either the range or the duration of the spell or ability. A crystal golem can use its own spell-like abilities as a swift action.


Environment any
Organization solitary or expatiation (2–5)

Crystal golems are rough-cut humanoid constructs hewn from spars and blocks of bluish crystal.

Shining with an inner light, crystal golems cannot speak but emit a constant hum of psychic energy.

A typical crystal golem is 10 feet tall and weighs over 1,800 pounds.
