Antimagic Field (Su)
A Vudh constantly generates an antimagic field in a 100-foot-radius. The field is an invisible barrier that is impervious to most magical effects, including spells, Spell-like abilities, and supernatural abilities. Likewise, it prevents the functioning of any magic items or spells within its confines. This effect is otherwise as an antimagic field cast by a 12th-level caster.

The anitmagic feild should be SU or SP, but otherwise, it looks fine at a glance.

Your creatures all dead, seeing as how they have zero Constitution.

They're all MACHINES. Course, technically machines are dead...

Constructs don't have a Constitution score. *They're neither dead or living. *A chair's not dead, for example. *So, Zeal, it might be a good idea to change that zero to a dash. *And hand out bonus hit points, as Small or larger constructs get them now. I'm also certain that some of your math is off, such as for saves, attack bonuses, etc.

(I was being a bit snarky in the previous post. *Please forgive.)
