If I have a mindless creature that can use skills, like an Astral Construct using the Utility option of Advanced Constructs, can that creature make Int-based skill checks?
I have a plan for my character that involves creating a large number of constructs and having them assist eachother to make very high DC skill checks, and I'm trying to find if there are any rules to prevent this. I'd like to use the constructs for, among other things, crafting lots of mundane weaponry during my downtime. I'll be there to supervise them while they work, but a Craft check is Int-based, so I'm unsure if it's legal for these constructs to be making these checks.
So, in general, can creatures that lack an ability score make skill checks using that score? More specifically, can a mindless creature use the Aid Another option to help out with crafting an item?
