This golem has a humanoid body that is made out of mostly iron, but layered with pillows. A hug golem can be fashioned in nearly any manner, like most other golems, however, it rarely carries anything resembling a weapon. The pillows it carries are specially reinforced to absorb the tremor they would cause by stepping, and usually the golem itself is decorated a light blue or pink. A hug golem is around 16 feet tall and weighs around 10,000 pounds. Most traits beyond this are similar to an iron golem, except that is commonly imbued with magic that gives it the ability to say short, cute, or hug demanding phrases.
The only command that it knows is 'hug'.

Immunity to Magic (Ex)

A Hug 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 magical attack that deals electricity damage slows an hug golem (as the slow spell) for 3 rounds, with no saving throw.

A magical attack that deals fire damage breaks any slow effect on the golem and heals 1 point of damage for each 3 points of damage the attack 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. If more than 10 fire damage is dealt to the hug golem in a single round, the pillows burn off. With no soft support, the golem's constriction deals an extra 15 points of damage (sea constrict). An hug golem gets no saving throw against fire effects.

An hug golem is affected normally by rust attacks, such as that of a rust monster or a rusting grasp spell.

Constrict (Ex)
A hug golem deals damage of 6d6 plus its Strength bonus on a successful grapple check. While the golem still has pillows, this damage is lessened by 15.


An hug golem’s body is sculpted from 16,000 pounds of pure iron, smelted with rare tinctures and admixtures costing at least 32,000 gp, 100 gp of pillows, hugs (priceless). Assembling the body requires a DC 20 Craft (armorsmithing) check or a DC 20 Craft (weaponsmithing) check.

Everybody hugging everybody else in an AIM chatroom will spontaneously form one if the hugging goes on long enough. :smallamused:
