Quote: Hey I think Xenobiology is making an army of golems!
Golems are the souls of the dead encased in gemstone. They retain no memories of their previous lives, but retain the cunning, knowledge and personalities of those spirits. They are completely devoted to their creator, and will carry out any order given to them. Typically they are aligned with the station, but in the wrong hands, they can be devastating due to how resistant to damage they are.
Their toughness and obedience makes them ideal as Bodyguards, Security and Engineers. Their nature of creation means they often assist in Research areas, but due to their slowness, single-minded devotion and lack of availability, are seldom seen in Medical and Command roles.
Golems are made by putting ten sheets of any material onto a golem shell crafted from Adamantine.

|How to pick||Be reborn into a golem that somebody crafted.|
|AI-interaction||The AI does not consider you human and is not obligated to listen to you and an Asimov AI will often respond lethally should they find you harming a Human. However, this also means the AI can allow you to put yourself into harm's way in a positive manner, such as opening an airlock exposed to space to save someone.|
Depends on the golem-type.

There are rumors about capitalist and soviet golems, but who would believe those anyways?
A few research stations have been careless with the orders they gave to their golems, and a few groups have started wandering in independent golem ships. Sometimes one of these ships may end up crashing in Lavaland. These golems, should they wake up from hibernation, will be effectively free of any master, and will usually mine and eventually build their own R&D; they are peaceful unless disturbed.
Free Golems start with a Golem Creation Disk, which contains a unique autolathe design that creates a Golem Shell, without any need for slimes. Unlike those made in xenobiology, however, golems made from these shells are not enslaved to their creator.
Golems main job is to try and get enough points to purchase liberators legacy, a box containing a full set of R&D circuit boards buildable with the help of the autolathe. From here, golems can set up a teleporter and get on board the station with ease.
This opens up many possibilities for interesting role playing scenarios including sending golem ambassadors to negotiate integration into the main stations main inhabitants. It could also lead to all out war with an especially foolish crew or a crafty traitor.
