Teddy Bear Golem (Candyland)

These Candyland favorites are not natives, as they reside principally in our own land of Mundania. They are children's defenders who have served a mortal child to adulthood, they can sleep-travel to Candyland to help visitors there. Most times they help one child for a night or two, then the child gets a good night sleep and no longer needs them.

Immune to Magic - Similar to other golem types, Teddy Bears have immunities to mind affecting and other spells.

Sleepytime - Wielder gains the benefits of a full night of sleep as long as they rested for 2 hours (non-cumulative) during the preceding night

Immune to Fear and Charm effects: Those who hold on to the Teddy Bear are granted immunity to fear and charm spells. This bonus is only given to one person at a time, and usually for the smallest or weakest character in a group. This immunity is not granted if the wielder carries the Teddy Bear in a backpack - it must be visible. Also, if the person commits evil actions, the Teddy Bear will stop giving any kind of help.

New feat: Improved Holding: Gain +12 on skill checks or saving throws involved in physically holding on to their ward

It is said that when little kids grow up in the land of Mundania, many toys are misplaced, given away or worse, but there rare few are kept in special places that never stop defending the smallest. They often go missing in the nighttime in their native land, but Candyland residents have long known that Teddy Bears in fact are one of the primary defenders of the lost or accidental visitors in their demi-plane dream realm.

They go to well traveled spots where they believe visitors may be found. Children are the primary users of the Teddy bears but any mortal creatures may use them if they are found and carried around for safety. Teddy bears have weak voices, as they are only able to be heard within the same five foot square foot they are in. They will try to give advice if asked, but only when asked. Their primary concern is always the safety of their ward not of any other well intentioned goal
