First Encountered: 24.1 "A New Hopeful"

Description: "The creature before you appears to be formed or grown out of blood-red crystal. Standing 10 feet tall, its deadly appearance is heightened by the sharp facets of its crystalline form."

Psion-killers are typically between 9 and 10 feet tall, weighing in excess of 2'500 pounds, and are composed entirely of crystal.

Information: Sometimes referred to as crystal golems, they are created as the antithesis of manifesters. Created to defend manifesters from their enemies, some claim that some wizard orders and strange cults have twisted this knowledge, to create these as warriors.

Psion-killers require explicit orders from their creator in order to do anything. They follow instructions literally and are incapable of using tactics or interpreting strategy.

The creator can command the psion-killer if within 60 feet of the construct and the construct can see and hear its creator. In the absence of its creator, the psion-killer will follow its last instruction to the best of its ability, although if attacked, it will defend itself.

Simple, persistent commands work to keep the psion-killer governed if the creator must be absent, including commands such as, "Attack any creatures other than me if they enter this room".

Creating: A psion-killer’s body is constructed from massive blocks of quartz crystal with a total weight of at least 5'000 pounds and costing at least 8'000 gp (which is why cost to create (71'000 +8'000) doubled is (142'000 +8'000) = 150'000 gp). Carving this block into the proper shape reduces it to almost half its original mass/weight.
