TACTICS

Before Combat The magus casts bull’s strength, cat’s grace, and stoneskin and activates his shield spell-like ability.

During Combat In the first round of combat, the wasteland magi will cast greater invisibility to get an advantage on her foes and keeps mobile throughout the battle when possible in order to confuse her opponents as to her exact location, using dimension door if necessary and moving enemies strategically with hydraulic push and force punch.

If presented with a large number of melee attackers, she will attempt to use reduce person (mass) to weaken their damage potential. Obviously spell-enhanced combatants will be targeted with dispel magic and engaged in melee with spellstrike attacks if possible.

Morale If reduced below 20 hp, the wasteland magus will attempt to retreat, using dimension door, if still available, and web to discourage pursuit.

Wasteland magi are pariahs of Hierarchy society, dwelling on the fringes and living among the dangerous Wasteland communities on Akasaat. Most Wasteland magi are loners, keeping to themselves and concealing their spellcasting ability whenever possible.
