Strange mechanic whirring and the clatter of a thousand metal feet preceeds a wave of these mechanical insects. Almost demonic in the voracity with which they propagate and replicate, they do not distinguish good from evil and have no qualms about mining people as well as materials.
Scouts are the replicators' light reconnaissance unit. They are comprised of 1,720 monads working together, compacted into a shape of a six-legged scarab-form 38 inches in length. They weigh approximately 70 pounds (or half that much when the base material is mithral). Drones do not harvest or sculpt materials, instead using their cutters in order to clear pathways and bypass obstacles.
Scouts are quick and fairly autonomous, often verging far from their nesting place in order to track objectives and targets, or to scout out regions that are rich in usable materials
Cutter: Replicators are equipped with one or more cutting tools. These are small, concentrated beams of energy that they use for harvesting raw material and attack. A scout's cutter beam ignores all material hardness and does 1d8 base damage when used for the latter purpose. It is considered a melee weapon because its range does not far exceed the drone's touch.
Fast Healing (Ex): When replicators get damaged, they attempt to absorb remnant monads from destroyed replicators into their subsystems, as well as shift the monads of their own body back into alignment, with limited effect. A scout regains 1 hit point at the start of every turn.
Magic Immunity (Ex): The strange magical energies that power individual monads have an arcane dampening effect that blocks the effects of most arcane and divine magics, with the following exceptions. Both chill metal and heat metal have the same effects upon a replicator as a slow spell, and a shatter spell deals normal damage to them.
Sensors (Ex): Replicator scouts have highly focused senses. They can detect objects and creatures in all directions and are immediately entitled to a Spot check when a creature enters within 60 feet, so long as that the scout has line of effect. Furthermore, replicator scouts get a +4 bonus to any Listen and Spot check due to their sensors.
