A tiny and obese little bear is sleeping on the path. It stirs as you approach and slowly rolls your way.
Slowgo Homunculi are creatures created by the spell Ell's Handy Homunculus. They are freakishly strong for their size, and pretty tough but not too bright, and they're ability is dangerous. They can drain the energy out of someone, while they pound with their fists. They are unusually lazy as a whole, and don't move unless asked to.
While generally constructs are neutral, a homunculi picks up the alignment of its creator on casting.
Handy homunculi make poor weapons. In spite of that, the little bear goes into melee, pounding with his fists and trying to suck away your energy.
- Drain Effort (Su)
On a successful hit the slowgo may immediately strike with a Touch of Fatigue effect as the spell, at a CL equal to its HD. The DC is 12, and is Strength based as it hits hard enough for muscles to give up tension.
The body is made of stone and fur, with the core crystal often embedded in the stomach. A drop of the caster's blood is anointed on the fur, which causes the fur to take on life-like living texture on casting Ell's Handy Homunculus. The entire cost of supplies equals 500 gp.
Assembling the body requires a DC 15 Craft (stonework) or Craft (taxidermy) check.
