[Fate Freeport] Robots! – Annihilator Robot

If you can’t guess, I like a good big stompy death machine every once in a while. Something to cap a campaign off with, once the characters have leveled a bit and have to save the world from some nefarious threat. Take for example one of the first Pathfinder robots, the Annihilator in the Inner Sea Bestiary (though it had several art appearances before that). This one was another attempt to see how much I could jam into Fate Freeport. In Pathfinder they’re CR 16 combat monsters, bristling with weapons and special attacks.

Oddly a direct conversion makes it less powerful, showing you how much was weighted towards its base attack bonus and level to make it deadly; the version below isn’t as powerful as some of the beasties in the Fate Freeport Companion, but it’s got a good set of stats and solid offensive/defensive abilities. Not a challenge to throw at beginners.
