TACTICS

Before Combat Before entering combat, a klaven commander casts instrument of agony on his longsword and stunning barrier on himself. He also grants a battle rage to his warbeast.

During Combat A klaven commandery pronounces a resiliency judgment as a swift action when he first confronts the PCs. He then attempts to demoralize their strongest-looking champion with an Intimidate check, relying on his instrument of agony to magnify the effect before engaging them in melee, preferably while flanking with his warbeast to benefit from his Precise Strike feat. If faced with an especially capable spellcaster or ranged attacker, he casts hold person or command to stymie them.

Morale A klaven commander fights to the death.
