Often encountered by adventurers, relic hunters, and explorers. The A26 is a former Lumerian terror weapon and trooper droid that was used extensively throughout the Lumerian empire to carry out the fanatical will of its kings,princesses, and despots. The robotic horrors are still found in dungeons through out the planes and there are rumors that they are still being manufactured and used by the Empire of Mongo.
Developed in the ancient weapon shops of Lemuria the ubiquitous robotic sentries have served with distinction for generations on a wide variety of worlds and might be encountered anywhere that the interests of Lemuria and by extension its colony world of Mongo has had dealings.
The A26 series of robotic sentries were used in suppression wars throughout the Lumerian empire against a wide variety of targets and within Lumerian colony worlds across the heavens and beyond. They have a limited and almost malevolent A.I. intelligence about them. These robotic terror are used to enforce the tyrannical rule of their masters with calculated mastery and efficient protocols. The A26 was manufactured in the billions over the course of centuries. This all came to an end with the fall of Lemuria.
The A26's became a terrifying foot note in the corner of history, but many of these monsters have re emerged with the rising of the ruins of Accursed Atlantis. Their golden armor and ships streak across the skies causing horror and mayhem often in the employ of petty warlords and wizards who have divided the secrets of their programming and have super scientists attend them. There are rumors of these monsters still in service to the Empire of Mongo but this is merely rumors borne of space borne tales. Such hog wash is quickly dismissed as nothing more then space trader and tavern talk.
The A26's are found wherever Lemurian ruins, bases, and dungeon works can be found. They are easily activated and have a very dangerous air about them. The monsters have all of the immunities of a Golem in Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperborea. They have a limited but cunning malevolent intelligence which drives them enabling them to mimic human and near human kind. They can pilot space craft, operate complex machinery, and carry out the wills of their tyrannical masters with expert efficiency. The A26 is almost always armed with a simple laser rifle that does 6d6 +1 per strike against living tissue and can blow holes in solid stone. The weapon has a range of 20 yards and the A26's use the weapons with abandon on targets. There will be between 1d10 charges, the rifles being recharged aboard the Lumerian space craft.
