This golem has a humanoid body made from Molten rocks and metals. A Lava golem wears no clothing.
A Lava golem cannot speak or make any vocal noise. It walks and moves with a slow, clumsy gait. It weighs around 600 pounds.
Berserk (Ex): When a Lava golem enters combat, there is a cumulative 1% chance each round that its elemental spirit breaks free and the golem goes berserk. The uncontrolled golem goes on a rampage, attacking the nearest living creature or smashing some object smaller than itself if no creature is within reach, then moving on to spread more destruction. Once a Lava golem goes berserk, no known method can reestablish control.
Immunity to Magic (Ex): A Lava golem is immune to any spell or spell-like ability that allows spell resistance. In addition, certain spells and effects function differently against the creature, as noted below.
A move earth spell drives the golem back 120 feet and deals 3d12 points of damage to it.
Any magical attack against a Lava golem that deals Fire damage heals 1 point of damage for every 3 points of damage it would otherwise deal. If the amount of healing would cause the golem to exceed its full normal hit points, it gains any excess as temporary hit points. For example, a Lava golem hit by the breath weapon of a red dragon heals 7 points of damage if the attack would have dealt 22 points of damage. A lava golem gets no saving throw against magical attacks that deal Cold damage.
A Lava golem’s body must be sculpted from a single block molten rock weighing at least 1,000 pounds, mixed with other rare fused metals worth 1,500 gp. Creating the body requires a DC 15 Craft (sculpting) check or a DC 15 Craft (pottery) check.
