Page 1: Observations[edit | edit source]

Being a great, soulless, vegetative creature that supports its mass and moves about by means of extraordinarily long arms. Said to be the manifestation of tree spirits, from trees burned down on battlefields, golems are peaceful by nature, though they suffer no intrusion upon their territory. They are as strong as their life-trees were old, so old that some are already in advanced stages of petrifaction even as they stand.

Page 2: Research Notes[edit | edit source]

Those vines and other parasitic plants that attach themselves upon the golem draw from them their hatred and thus grow, eventually becoming mystletainn, a word meaning 'stricken by catastrophe' in the language of the woodlands peoples. It is widely believed that without the proper purifications, mystletainn calls misfortune upon its bearer, and has the power to kill with magicks. So do those who approach golems unwarily, and carry home what they find, condemn themselves to a grisly, ensorceled death, bewailing their fate with their final breaths.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

In Jewish and medieval folklore, a golem is an animated anthropomorphic being, magically created from inanimate matter. The word was used to mean an amorphous, unformed material (usually out of stone and clay) in Psalms and medieval writing. Adam, the first man created by God in the Holy Bible, was a golem since he was created from dust and sand. Having a golem servant was seen as the ultimate symbol of wisdom and holiness, with stories of prominent Rabbis owning golems throughout the middle ages. In modern times, the word golem, sometimes pronounced goilem in Yiddish, has come to mean one who is slow, clumsy, and generally dimwitted.
