Amethyst men are an extremely rare type of anthropomorphic creature made of solid amethyst, essentially gemstone golems, found only in the deepest caverns. They are non-sentient creatures that are not alive, feel no pain, feel no fear, cannot be stunned, like fighting, do not need to breathe, have no thought center, and are type two building destroyers. They are decent fighters, not to be attacked without large numbers or good soldiers. Amethyst men can only be killed in combat by severing of their heads with an adept sword or axe stroke (blunt weapons are useless), or more creatively with a long fall, a cave-in, or magma. Upon death, they leave a rough amethyst gem usable by your jewelers.
