Fantastic machine was a divine illusion spell that created an illusory and very noisy mechanical contraption.[1]

Users[edit | edit source]

It was solely available to clerics who worshiped deities of the Craft or Gnome domains.[1]

Effect[edit | edit source]

When cast, this spell brought into being a large mechanical construct. It was illusory but very noisy and had an imposing and massive build and many arms. It had a hard, armored casing but was not especially resilient. It trundled along the ground at a pace one-third faster than a human. It was capable of swimming or flying, but did so slowly and clumsily.

It could be commanded by the spellcaster to carry out and repeat a simple, physical task, but instructions could be no more than twenty-five words in length. Instructions were given only when the spell was cast and could not be changed.

It could carry up to 700 pounds (320 kilograms), but moved slowly when fully loaded, and it could not fly or swim if carrying over 230 pounds (104 kilograms). It could lift a weight of up to 1400 pounds (635 kilograms) to a height of 15 feet (4.6 meters) and push or drag 3500 pounds (1560 kilograms). The fantastic machine could also excavate a volume of loose rock up to 7000 pounds (3180 kilograms) per minute; sand or loose soil could be moved twice as fast.

The machine attacked by slamming one of its arms against an opponent; it was thrice as effective against metal or stone as it was against creatures and other materials. It could throw rocks or similar masses of a certain size up to a 150 feet (46 meters) with ease, and up to 1500 feet (460 meters) in total.
