TACTICS

Before Combat Before combat the investigator buffs himself with his shield spell-like ability and drinks a cat’s grace extract.

During Combat The investigator fights intelligently, utilizing the terrain to attempt to maneuver opponents into a situation where he can fight at range or at least can’t be attacked by more than one opponent. If it seems impossible to escape melee, he tries to use his thorn body extract to discourage attackers. He utilizes his invisibility extract to heal and reposition himself to a more favorable position if necessary, using vomit swarm to harry spellcasters.

Morale If reduced to less than half HP and not expecting to have a chance to heal, the investigator uses his gaseous form or invisibility extract to aid his escape.
