I just saw a post on ENWorld about a chain golem and immediately my mind started doing cartwheels thinking of all the second-hand material that golems could be made from.
To explain my thinking, usually a golem is made from a primary material... clay, wood, stone, flesh, bone, and so on... although clay is drawn from sand and a sand golem would kick ass too.
But what if golem's could ONLY be made from discarded items, things that people had forgotten about or lost their connection too.
The longer they'd been left unattended, the more powerful they would become.
Dang. I'm onto something here.
Okay. I'm cutting this short and really going to do something cool with this idea.
