TACTICS

Before Combat the goblin firestarters like to position themselves behind barrels or similar objects so they can attack from behind cover.

During Combat A goblin firestarter fires on the PCs, taking advantage of his position to rain explosive arrows down on them. If the goblin firestarter has the high ground, he may decide to push the barrels he is using for cover down at the PCs, which he does so with great relish.
