I have a character (alchemist with Promethean Disciple) who has the Craft Construct feat. I would like to make some Animated Objects. The page on the SRD gives me a formula for the cost on the animation, namely ((HD+CP)*1000)/2.
By this math, using this page for information on HD and CP for each size, I have the following costs for Animating objects via Craft Construct. Tiny: 1000, Small: 1500, Medium: 2500, Large: 3500, Huge: 5500, Gargantuan: 7500, Colossal: 8500.
However. The first linked page also has a table , that helpfully lists costs for various constructs, including Animated Objects: Tiny: 125, Small: 1000, Medium: 2250, Large: 6250, Huge: 12500, Gargantuan: 20000, Colossal: 30000.
What are the correct costs for using Animate Object via the Craft Construct rules?
