Altunus Construct

Published February 13, 2014 by


Description

A body of black metal with dozens of limbs ending in razor sharp implements, the Altunus Construct is a huge machine that almost resembles an insect with its multiple limbs, writing tail and dominant green eye. Meant for both construction and slaughter in equal measure, Altunus Constructs are the guardians of a sleeping tomb city. Able to phase through any material and still affect it with their many implements is a key feature on and off the battlefield. Repairing dead wires, or severing the arteries leading to the heart are just as easy for the machine to accomplish.

Details

Level:
4 (12)
Motive:
Protect the Tombs
Environment:
Tomb cities (or relatively nearby) of the Altunus
Health:
12
Damage:
4
Armor:
2
Movement:
Long
Modifications:

Immune to poison and disease. Speed defense as level 5 due to phasing ability.

Combat:

Will usually attempt to lure prey into a dead end before phasing through a solid wall, or the ground to attack. However, it is not uncommon for Altunus Constructs to attack head on when their city is being invaded. Using their phasing ability to also bypass any kind of armor, these machines are deadly in the extreme.

Interaction:

Able to understand speech, the only time even a glimmer of attention will be spared is if the Construct believes that what it is listening to will somehow help its tomb city.

Use:

Good ghost town scenario, or maybe an indicator than an Altunus tomb city is nearby.

Loot:

1 cypher, and possibly a light weapon can be salvaged from its instruments.
