The piezoelectric golem found below is compatible with The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. 
 
Why no picture? Well, drawing is not my forte. Though I could find free artwork or ask an artist for a free submission, I would much rather pay an artist for their work. Please consider becoming a patron and supporting me on my Patreon. The donations will be used solely for upgrading my site as well as being able to pay professionals for their contributions.

And no. The name is not a play on Paizo. I am a huge science nerd. Like almost as big as Donald Trump’s ego huge.
 
This mechanical, human-shaped figure moves in perfect rhythm. Occasional sparks jolt from softly humming crystals embedded throughout its frame.

Immunity to Magic (Ex) A piezoelectric golem is immune to spells or spell-like abilities that allow spell resistance. Certain spells and effects function differently against it, as noted below. 
Any magical attack that deals electricity damage hastens a piezoelectric golem (as the haste spell) for 2d6 rounds.
A magical attack that deals sonic 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. A piezoelectric golem gets no save against sonic effects.
silence spell slows a piezoelectric golem (as the slow spell) and negates the golem’s shock ability for 2d6 rounds.
Rhythmic Blows (Ex) Each time a piezoelectric golem hits a target, it gains a +1 bonus on attack rolls against that target. This bonus stacks with each successful hit against that target, but lasts only until the end of the golem’s turn.
Shock (Ex) A piezoelectric golem’s body generates small charges of electricity when struck, dealing 1d4 points of damage on a successful slam attack. Creatures attacking a piezoelectric golem with unarmed strikes, natural weapons, or weapons made entirely of metal take this same electricity damage each time one of their attacks hits.


First created for industrial use, the piezoelectric golems quickly found their way into many wealthy households and business establishments. The quartz crystals embedded within a piezoelectric golem’s body constantly hum and vibrate while supplying a steady current of electricity to the golem. This steady stream of power allows the golem to keep a perfect rhythm on tasks requiring repetitive motion, such as, rowing a boat or pumping the bellows of a forge.

Due to the soft, resonant metals and special gems found throughout the body, piezoelectric golems convert applied pressure on their bodies into electricity to power defensive mechanisms and their perfect timing.
Piezoelectric golems can be forged from various substances, though their bodies are typically made from brass and quartz. Piezoelectric golems stand nearly 7 feet tall and weigh 1,200 pounds.

Construction 

A piezoelectric golem’s body must be constructed from a combination of soft metals such as brass weighing at least 1000 pounds and quartz or crystals with similar resonance properties worth at least 1000 gp.
