Golem Unit Icon

I Climbed intro the hatch and sealed the overhead latch. Locking my body into the harness, I activated the compact boilers and tapped the fuel gauge. The mana-cells glowed with energy. Fresh and ready for battle, I released the first steam valve and locked in the marionette-like motion activators. Every movement of my body caused the Golem to react in like manner. I stomped across the battlefield, and struck a rock giant in the chest. It grabbed me. I half expected the whole contraption to explode, but the Golem stood solid. I pushed back, grappling hand to hand with the creature! Imagine! Me! A simple engineer locked in melee with a legend!
