Special Abilities

Disease (Ex) Viridium Leprosy—injury; save Fort DC 24; onset immediate; frequency 1/day; effect 1d6 Cha damage and 1d6 Con damage; cure 3 consecutive saves. The save DC is Constitution-based.
Immunity to Magic (Ex) A viridium golem is immune to any spell or spell-like ability that allows spell resistance. Certain spells and effects function as noted below.
  • • A heal spell deals 5 points of damage per caster level to a viridium golem, to a maximum of 75 points of damage. This damage bypasses the golem’s damage reduction.
  • • A remove disease spell staggers a viridium golem for 1 round (no save).

Shield (Ex) A viridium golem’s shield is part of its body and does not provide a bonus to its AC; it functions as a primary natural attack that deals bludgeoning damage. A creature struck by the golem’s shield is exposed to the golem’s disease and must also attempt a DC 24 Fortitude save to avoid being stunned for 1 round. The save DC is Constitution-based.
Sword (Ex) A viridium golem’s sword functions as a primary natural attack that deals slashing damage and can cause both disease and deep, bleeding wounds.


Viridium golems exemplify toxicity, as the substance that makes up their bodies is known for its lethality. A viridium golem stands 25 feet tall and weighs 20,000 pounds.
