TACTICS

Before Combat A master detective is somewhat paranoid and always expects ambush, so he often has his rail gun in hand, hefting the great thing while his sword is never far from his hand. If caught unawares, his first thought is to cast invisibility and get away. He knows allies are rarely far away, and he prefers to fight with backup and support.

During Combat The master detective is a brutal fighter—he’s had a tough life and fights like a cornered dog, rarely using his spells. He likes to lead with his rail gun and then use his greatsword while being backed by his allies.
