Straw Golems are the most basic of golems. They are the first golem which you will discover. While they may be squishy and weak, at least they are fast.

The golem you craft can be placed in the world, but will remain inactive until given an animation core.
The placement of the golem needs to be considered carefully - if you wish it to interact with inventories, you will need to place it by clicking (or shift-clicking) on the inventory on the side you wish it to interact with.
Most golems can operate in a range of 16 blocks around their home location.
When this research is completed it automatically unlocks the Golemancer's Bell and the first Golem Animation Core - Golem Core: Gather. For more details and to see how these are crafted refer to their respective research entries.
