1stbomber's eye*, expeditious retreat, shield


Before Combat If he hears intruders approaching, he drinks his shield extract.

During Combat He orders minions to attack intruders before casting bomber's eye and throwing frost bombs. If forced into melee, he drinks his mutagen, increasing his Strength and natural armor at the expense of his intellect, then drinks one of his potions of enlarge person.

Morale If reduced to fewer than 10 hit points, he drinks his expeditious retreat extract and tries to flee through area 26 or one of the other exits (likely by jumping down the shaft to area 11) to escape the ossuary. He refuses to be captured and brought before the church for justice, so if cornered, he fights to the death.
