Bile Spider Goblins (4e Creature)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Bile Spider Goblins are based on the article "Role vs. Roll: Alchemically Imbalanced" in Dragon Magazine #364. The Bile Spider King, Ziguarz, has experimented with foul alchemical concoctions, altering and mutating his tribe members, allied humanoids, and companion creatures. Bile Spider goblins are either Alchemically Altered, or use alchemical-type items and attacks. Alchemically Altered creatures will have poison, acid, or both added to their attacks, powers, and characteristics.

Bile Spider Goblins look much like other goblins unless they are Alchemically Altered. They have a green spider symbol somewhere on their armor or clothing, and use alchemical-type items and attacks.

Goblin slingers avoid melee combat. They prefer to stay behind cover and bombard foes with special shot and sling stones. If targeted with a melee attack, goblin slinger will attempt to use Lesser Caustic Glue to assist them in moving back to range. If they can't use Lesser Caustic Glue, they will use their short sword until they can use Goblin Tactics, at which point they will retreat.

Bile Spider Goblin Warrior Tactics[edit]

Goblin warriors would rather fight at range, using Mobile Ranged Attack to deal damage with their javelins. In melee combat, they use Goblin Tactics to maneuver into flanking positions. If combat turns against them, they will attempt to retreat to range, using Mobile Ranged Attack or Lesser Bloodstinger Poison. Once bloodied (or once they’ve seen several of their comrades cut down), warriors tend to flee and leave allies to fend for themselves.
