Adamantine wasps are used to guard or patrol areas the creator wishes to keep “off limits.” From a distance, they resemble 1-foot long silver wasps.

Usually created by magic, the process has been duplicated by careful engineering; a mechanical swarm gains the technological subtype rather than the magical subtype. Whatever their origin, their creators often enhance the ruse that these creatures are natural insects by constructing fake nests nearby to detract would-be trespassers.

An adamantine wasp is 1-foot long and looks like its namesake only made out of metal. Its body is segmented like a normal wasp (head, thorax, and abdomen) and has carefully and delicately been fitted together to form the wasp. A wicked-looking adamantine stinger protrudes from its abdomen.

Its wings are formed of paper-thin adamantine, specially treated during the construction process.
