A force golem stands roughly 7 feet and weighs a meagre 10 pounds of force threads held together with captured minerals and shaped into a sleek, translucent golem's body.
Barrier (Ps): Once every hour, a force golem can manifest a 10-foot square barrier of force that functions as a wall of force. The barrier may be oriented horizontally (as a floor or roof) or vertically (as a wall). The barrier lasts for 5 rounds and is the equivalent of a 3rd level power.
Psi-Like Abilities: 3/day—concussion blast (2d6 force, affects 2 targets), ego whip (DC 17); 1/day—telekinetic thrust (Charisma-based attack rolls; DC 18), Manifester level 5th. Save DCs are Charisma-based.
Visor: A force golem has a powerful sensor array that gives it a +4 racial bonus to Listen and Spot checks. The sensor's ocular node also functions as a weapon, that fires 1d3 magic missiles when triggered. Caster level 5th.
A force golem's body is constructed of semi-permeable force energy requiring psionic crystals costing at least 3,000 gp as a material component, drawn together and solidified using powerful psionics, and then imbued with a process called cerebral imprinting. This process requires a psicrystal of 8th level or higher as a focus, and is subsumed in the casting time. The psicrystal's abilities cannot be used during the period of creation.
