The Royal Explorers of New Calidor
Powerful, but dependent on human command, Golems are often credited for the continued survival of Canternavon. The exception to this is the Soul Forged Golem Knights. Though few remain, these Golem Knights are gifted by Perun with speech and the semblance of thought and capacity for independent action.
The ritual of Golem creation is only known by the most high ranking of Mages or Priests. Their production has slowly dwindled, though the need for their presence in the defense of The City is still strong. In hushed voices, some question why this might be, for few wish to be seen as questioning the authority of The Citadel, War College, or Temple of Perun.
Most Golems in Calidor are made from Clay or Stone, but the Soul-Forged Knights are made from Steel or Iron and are often indistinguishable from their armoured human allies in the midst of battle. Each Golem has a gem or crystal embedded in its form, that many citizens theorize harbor the divine spark of Perun that allow what should be rigid material to bend, stride, and fight.
