What is a Guthallath in Pathfinder 2e? A guthallath is an enormous construct created long ago by some unknown empire, probably as a war machine. Nearly 100 feet tall, this massive stone statue typically resembles a stalwart warrior wearing only a loincloth and skullcap. Few have seen the entire body of a guthallath, though; most of the time such a relic is buried up to its neck, covered in moss and stranded in some forgotten place. Yet, every so often, one of these harbingers of destruction reactivates in response to some unknown stimulus or rallying call, and when this happens, woe be unto any who stand in its way.

Unpredictable Constructs

While the guthallath’s ancient enemies are gone, it is an engine of pure destruction, designed to rampage for weeks or even months. While not intelligent enough to enjoy or regret its acts, the guthallath cannot be reasoned with—it is unaffected by most magic, and is unpredictable in how it selects its targets (and creatures it spares).

The Buried Secret

The adventurers find an ancient text that speaks of a powerful weapon that can stop a rampaging Guthallath. However, the weapon is buried with the Guthallath itself. The adventurers must find the sleeping Guthallath, retrieve the weapon without awakening it, and use it to stop another Guthallath that has already awakened and is causing destruction.

The Unpredictable Colossus

A Guthallath has been awakened and is on a path of destruction. However, its targets seem random, and it spares certain creatures. The adventurers must figure out the pattern and use it to their advantage to stop the Guthallath.
