TACTICS

Before Combat The goblins busy themselves by playing their favorite game, “Guess what food I’m thinking of,” and so receive a -12 penalty to their Perception checks (due to the distraction of the game and the guesses they yell out at the top of their lungs). If the goblins become aware of the PCs, they immediately stop their game, falling silent and moving into position to attack.

During Combat The goblin soldiers will rush to fight. Even if they are surprised, the goblin soldiers will call out for other goblins to aid them.

Morale If the goblin soldiers appear to be losing, they will attempt to conduct a fighting retreat to a more secure location. The goblin soldiers will fight to the death.
