Overlapping layers of skin are stitched together in a patchwork pattern over a frame of bone to resemble the form of a man. Dark creases in the flesh offer the only indication of features in the golem's face, while the rest of its body is composed of blubbery mass and the occasional portion of some humanoid race, from kobold to krolvin. Two lengthy, thick arms that end in huge swollen fists distract from the great height of the golem.

Hunting strategies

The flesh golem is the easiest creature to use Mana Leech (516) on in the lower levels of the Marsh Keep. This will allow a good supply of mana to use against the other creatures, such as tomb trolls and tomb troll necromancers.

Other information

The flesh golem ignores fatal criticals, cannot be stunned, and can break webs.

The flesh golem has the ability to create a noxious cloud, this is a maneuver attack that inflicts one of a variety of diseases if the vapors are breathed in. After a couple rounds, each disease will inflict different status effects and/or damage during each subsequent round. Casting Purify Air (207) will not make one immune to the gas, but will help to reduce its effects. Similarly, Undisease (113) will reduce the number of rounds if a hidden warding roll is successful, but requires multiple casts to remove the disease. Shields can aid in your defense against the cloud.

A flesh golem shudders as a green miasma seeps from numerous cracks and orifices in the golem and forms a huge noxious cloud that wafts directly towards you.
Flinging yourself backwards out of the path of the cloud, you avoid the noxious vapors.
