Golems are robots from Ticktop created to do most of the work while the people are busy inventing.They appear to be of similar design to the Simbots from The Sims:Ambitions,yet chunkier.
In Jewish mythology,Golems were huge men made out of mud,that were controlled by scrolls placed inside their head.
When doing the "Golems Gone Wild " quest your wizard will learn the "Golemify" spell which has the combination of light, force and energy. This turns the target into a Golem if they have the Golem Disguise Prototype in their inventory which can be crafted by the Smith. The sim will do everything he/she normally does. The disguise will count as everyday clothes, and your sim can put them on or take them off whenever he/she wants to. All the spell does is forcing the target to put on the disguise. after a period of 5 hours the Golems will put on their normal clothes again. The suit does not count as armor.
A number of real Golems (as opposed to the Golem disguises in the Golems Gone Wild quest) will join the Kingdom as NPCs if the peaceful approach is chosen.
