    Im pretty sure you can. I think you were banned for only one contest.
    And I think Ill join.
    Some questions-
    *Does it have to be a golem or just have to fulfill the organic->non-organic rule? Cos in my mind a golem is just a "insert material here" humanoid.
    *Could you use other things other than a humanoid e.g a dog (not that im making a dog)

    Anyway, I'm gonna use an ancient and turn it into some clockwork thingy, so try not to use ancients as well if possible.

    Pit Lord. Thought of how that'd look (would take a lot of work). I'm curious as to what you're going to do with the wings, or if you're going to alpha them away completely. It's hard to find a unit without a distinct breathing animation to manipulate and make into a golem.

    Well most of the organics have a "breathing" anim so everyone is on the same page.

    Per definition, something that seemingly live (mainly by the power of magic) and consists of inorganic parts (whether one inorganic material altogether or several different ones) is a golem. Thus, by fulfilling the organic to inorganic transition, you have a golem and your entry will (most likely) be accepted. Be sure to post ask specifically if you're in doubt so that you have time to make something else if it won't be accepted.


    That's looking sexy, Pyra.

    Thanks for clearing things out Shiik, not I can start :). Anyway, Im not gonna make a clockwork anymore, I think Im gonna make an Aztec-Inspired golem. Is that alright Shiik?
    I cant really show an example pic. Cant find any on google. It would be like a rock golem with aztec engravings

    Rocks are inorganic, so turning an organic unit into a unit consisting of rocks, engravings or no, is acceptable.
