TACTICS

Before Combat The cultist applies his oil of magic weapon and attempts to ambush his foes, drinking his potion of invisibility if simply hiding isn’t an option.

During Combat The cultist attempts to flank with other cultists to throw foes off balance, feinting if necessary.

Morale The cultist believes he will be raised as an undead creature if slain and so fights to the death.
