Statblock Sunday: Golem Liberum

Golem Liberum - JAM

As if sent askitter by an unseen gust of wind, the books in the library are thrown from their shelves. Some twirl about, airborne with pages fluttering back-and-forth, while others fall, bounce, and flip across the ground as if being pushed by an unseen force. Within moments the tomes pile, slam, and organize themselves into a haphazard stack that vaguely resembles a short humanoid form.

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Flurry of Pages (Su)
As a full-round action, a golem liberum can cause pages to tear from the many tomes that comprise its body and send them in a fluttery flurry towards any target within 60 feet. The flurry of pages inflicts hundreds of tiny paper-cuts to its target dealing 1 point of bleed damage (DC 20 Reflex negates). The flurry of pages also obscures the targets vision causing them to react as if dazzled (DC 25 Will negates). A golem liberum can have only one active flurry at a time, but may move the effect to another target within 30 feet of the first affected target as a swift action.
