Golems, what do we really know about them?
In jewish lore they are the spirits of the dead returned to the flesh
to exact revenge apon the killers.
In fantasy games they are often statues of some variety, metal, stone
and other varients as well.
Gargoyles are often viewed as a type of Golem, albeit spirits of evil
on a stoney body that can fly some how.
So being creatures of stone nominally puts them in the camp of david,
being resserected spirits puts them nominally in the camp of saints.
"my lord, have you forsaken me, i have carved this image in your
likeness and i feel your light no longer in my eyes...." Hassuz
called aloud, his hammer and chisle falling to the floor, the warmth
of the day fleeing fast from the land.
Dust settled, and then a voice was heard.
~MAKER OF IMAGES, YOU ARE NOT LOST TO THE SIGHT OF OUR LORD, I, THE
LIVING ROCK SHALL GUIDE YOU TO HIM~
And so it was that Hassuz, mason to the tyrants of egypt, son of a
mason, worshipper of he who is called Yaweh, came to know his true
calling, that of carving the stone, no longer in to the shape of the
lord or his angels, but in to shapes of men and animals so that their
spirits would walk once more, set free by the lord to do his work.
Through out the ages the children of hassuz have carved the statues,
some have made colossii, others have crafted the flesh, some made
socerous dealings with demons and angels alike and have learned how
to imbue the stone and the metal with spirits, many malign.
