Stone golems were constructed from a single piece of carefully chiseled stone. The most elegant stone golems were used as both guardians and art pieces in a magical building. They appeared to be beautiful statues until commanded by their master to move and act.[1]

Stone golems were used as divine agents of the gods Clangeddin Silverbeard, Geb, Segojan Earthcaller, and the Red Knight. Those that served the latter goddess had the form of chess pieces.[6]


The average stone golem was about 9 ft (2.7 m) tall and weighed approximately 2,000 lb (900 kg).[3]


Sogi-nora were rare stone golems that could be found in the Hordelands. These golems were created by wu jen and given a mind of their own. They were adept at implementing martial arts maneuvers like throws during combat.[7]
