Automaton (Repurposed Corpse)

((Black Hack Variant))


While the Ta'ak certainly have fully mechanical automatons at their disposal, it is often more useful to re-purpose fallen enemies whose physiology has been selected for in a given environment.  These undead automatons are typically more capable of navigating the terrain of their own home worlds, and their very presence is demoralizing to resistance efforts.

The interface is not capable of allowing Ta'ak engineers (tinkers) to issue complex commands, nor are Repurposed Automatons capable of using ranged weapons or devices. They are vicious melee combatants, and will fight until destroyed.
