Rushed Sausage Golem: Any or all of the following; Appearance: Horrific [-16], Bad Smell [-10], Draining (human meat) [-10], reduce Unhealing to [-20] (human meat) and add Odious Personal Habit (consumes humans) [net -5].  A rushed sausage Golem with all these traits will have a net value of -6, which would reduce the cost to cast the Golem spell (GURPS Magic, page 59) to 130.

These golems are usually created as brawlers and house-clearers; they’re not subtle, but they can be effective.  Sausage Golems are not exactly made out of sausage; they’re essentially about 300 pounds of random meat thrown together in a humanoid shape and given unnatural life.  They’re not as strong as clay golems, but are definitely quicker.

Oddly, Sausage Golems cannot ‘talk,’ despite the fact that one could easily be made out of tongues and lungs.  They are also not safe to eat.  In fact, a Sausage Golem can somehow collect the disease germs inside its body and infect others in melee.

Sometimes, when a Sausage Golem is being created, the enchanter has to rush the job.  A Rushed Sausage Golem is a no-fooling unholy abomination that will fall apart very quickly unless it gets a regular supply of human (or sapient humanoid) meat.  The first ones were created accidentally; but these days, they’re sometimes deliberately created as terror or revenge weapons. Rushed Sausage Golems aren’t more dangerous than regular ones, but they’re definitely nastier.  Sometimes, nastier is just what the necromancer ordered.
