Monstrous Physique — Robot Santa (SF)

Hey, there! Luis, here! As we all know, X-Mas is soon upon us. This brings with it lots of terror and cowering in fear from watchful gaze of the Robot Santa. This grim, holiday figure is here to judge us all as naughty and dole out appropriate punishments. I took this week to stat up Robot Santa so you know what to expect this upcoming X-Mas eve.

Laser Tommy Gun (Ex) Robot Santa’s plasma weapon can fire a deadly energy beam with a range increment of 120 feet.
Crumple Zones If Robot Santa somehow has to attempt a save against a mind-affecting effect, he gains a +10 bonus to the save thanks to his paradox-absorbing crumble zones.
Hard to Kill Robot Santa is not automatically destroyed when reduced to 0 or fewer Hit Points. Every turn Robot Santa is at 0 Hit Points or fewer Hit Points, it must attempt a DC 10 Fortitude save or be destroyed. The DC increases by 1 for every round that Robot Santa is at 0 or fewer Hit Points.
Naughty List Robot Santa is designed with a nice/naughty matrix allows it to assess the naughtiness of anyone in an instant. Robot Santa can attempt to identify a creature within 30 feet as a swift action with a +15 bonus. Robot Santa gains a +1 bonus to attack the targeted creature until the start of its next turn.

Robot Santa is a large robot designed with the intent to judge people as naughty or nice and hand out gifts as appropriate. Unfortunately, a programming error set Robot Santa’s standards too high and he typically judges every person as naughty. As a result, he attempts to destroy the naughty any way he can. This is usually done using a variety of X-Mas-themed weapons and murder device. Make sure to stay inside this holiday season, lest you incur the wrath of Robot Santa!

That’s it for this week! If you end up introducing Robot Santa into your game or you have any request for a future Monstrous Physique, please drop me a line at
