Special Traits

  • Brutal Critical. The golem can roll one additional weapon damage die when determining the extra damage for a critical hit with a melee attack.
  • Fire Absorption. Whenever the golem is subjected to fire damage, it takes no damage and instead regains a number of hit points equal to the fire damage dealt.
  • Immutable Form. The golem is immune to any spell or effect that would alter its form.
  • Magic Resistance. The golem has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
  • Magic Weapons. The golem’s weapon attacks are magical.
  • Reckless. At the start of its turn, the berserk brass man can gain advantage on all melee weapon attack rolls during that turn, but attack rolls against it have advantage until the start of its next turn.

  • Greatsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 20 (4d6 + 6) slashing damage.

About

Brass men are humanoid-shaped constructs built by the powerful efreet of the City of Brass. They are created for the sole purpose of guarding some efreeti secret within the walls of the City. Some are created as battle allies and aid the efreet in battle against their enemies. They are rarely encountered elsewhere, though on occasion one is sent to the Material Plane by its efreet creator to retrieve an object or creature.

Brass men are very tough physical opponents and difficult to stop. Typically a brass man begins combat by spitting molten brass on the closest opponent before moving into melee where it attacks with its huge greatsword or its powerful fists.
