TACTICS

Before Combat If he has warning of attackers, a jagladine scientist drinks his potion of barkskin as well as a dose of purple worm poison to use with his reflexive biology ability or a targeted injection.

During Combat A jagladine scientist primarily relies on frost and stink bombs in battle, using his precise bomb discovery to stagger and nauseate opponents to maximize his klaven’s coordinated attacks. He imbibes his targeted bomb admixture early in combat to assault particularly dangerous enemies, and he uses his innate Climb speed to crawl upon the chamber walls and ceiling to stay out of direct melee, using adhesive spittle to provide further battleground control or slow pursuit, if he tries to flee.

Morale If reduced to 15 hp or less, and the PCs still appear hardy, a jagladine scientist retreats, invoking a burst of fire from his blazing robe, and drinking an extract of invisibility to facilitate the attempt.
