Stupid, stiff, slow, and prone to catch fire and sink into the swamp, wood golems are, however cheap to make, and thus are found defending things belonging to people who arenít willing to sink large amounts of money on defence. Or who are amused by golems who look like small children made them. They have to be given very simple instructions and stand a reasonable chance of screwing even simple instructions up.
