TACTICS

Before Combat The jagladine commander uses spell kenning each day to cast water breathing at his own caster level, using his scrolls to cover gaps in time whenever he must spend more than a day submerged. He also casts alarm to warn him of intruders into his encampment or base of operations. If the PCs are detected before combat begins, he begins his raging song before casting freedom of movement and dance of a hundred cuts before moving toward a threat. He casts haste if his allies are nearby before combat begins. These spells are included in this statistics block.

During Combat The jagladine commander wades into melee, making full attacks with his hand axes. He uses Combat Expertise to increase his AC and prolong the support he gives his allies.

Morale The jagladine are unlikely fight to the death. The commander orders his minions to cover his retreat once he is reduced to 20 hp or less. He then casts expeditious retreat and flees.
