Many animated objects have useful functions but become dangers when uncontrolled. Large armies sometimes pay exorbitant fees to animate their siege weapons.

Most animated objects are created for convenience or out of vanity. Animating a 100-foot-tall statue is worth the cost for spellcasters guarding immense dungeons.

The process for animating objects varies from object to object and by the needs of the ritual. Some rituals designate a controller whom the animated object obeys.

Without orders, many animated objects fall back to defensive tactics. In other cases, the ritual may have been poorly performed or may have failed after many years, causing the animated object to enter an uncontrollable state where it attacks anything it sees.
