Monster of the Week - Ancient Exas

This week's offering from the Eberron Bestiary can be described with just one word: 'big.' Or perhaps two: 'real big.' The most powerful creature created for the Bestiary so far, the Ancient Exas is a colossal construct created on Xen'drik during the Age of Giants. So immense is this construct that the very earth splits beneath its feet, and cliffs crumble as it passes. This construct is a great encounter for all those high level PCs who thing they have seen the worst Xen'drik has to offer.
Here is a sneak preview:

The construct of stone and metal before you rises high into the sky. This machine of war is beyond the scales of any Khorvairian artificer, this is a relic of the past.

The Age of Giants was as rife with war as any other age of Eberron, and the exas are relics of the colossal battles fought on Xen'drik. When carvings depicting the exas were uncovered in the ruins of a Giant keep deep in the jungle, scholars originally believed them to be images of the Sovereigns. However, when an expedition to a nearby ancient battlefield uncovered the remains of one of these enormous constructs, clearly damaged in battle, they found the true power of Giant artifice.
