  • Self-Destruct. When the jorezistent would take damage, it can use its reaction to hurl itself up to 20 feet in any direction. At the end of this movement it explodes in a 5-foot radius sphere. Creatures in the area must make DC 18 Dexterity saving throw, taking 10 (3d6) lightning damage and 10 (3d6) slashing damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.


This strange metallic crustacean stands on three legs and has two hideous, bulky arms, each ending in taloned hands. The whole of its back curves with a shelled carapace beginning from an artificially tusked head.

Not all of these automatons are inert however and those that still prowl the planet are dangerous opponents, albeit single-minded in their pursuits. Most of the time jorezistent are tasked with protecting a certain territory or to procure a specific object or creature-nothing short of an explosive end stops them.

As large as a small house, this terrifying humanoid monstrosity of crustaceous metal moves with uncanny grace, the intimidating blade extending from its huge right arm humming malevolently as its legs spring, ready to attack.
