Here is the first of a series of "Focus On Monster" articles describing monsters the way they were implemented in Knights of the Chalice. Feel free to post comments.

Iron Golem

Ruthless. Heartless. Infinitely patient. Iron Golems are metallic automatons that were created using powerful magic. They look like armored giants. They are mighty combatants who follow their creator's orders to the letter, even if it means their own destruction. Usually they are ordered to guard a particular place or to protect the wizard who created them.
