DM Notes

Golluk is a supernatural hit-and-run sniper which should be run in an area strewn with rubble, with multiple levels (or at least some pillars, trees, or buildings to ascend). He uses his Blue-ness only to qualify for a couple of [Psionic] feats, which enhance his mobility. (He will always begin an encounter with his Psionic Focus, and he has no reason to expend it.)

At the start of hit-and-run combat, Golluk has the following Maneuvers readied: Fire Snake, Fan the Flames, Shadow Garrote, Shadow Jaunt, Cloak of Deception, Moment of Perfect Mind

If he expects to engage in melee (or has one full round to prepare for it) he readies these Maneuvers: Sapphire Nightmare Blade, Cloak of Deception, Shadow Jaunt, Burning Blade, Fire Riposte, Moment of Perfect Mind


Golluk switches between his three Stances throughout combat. He'll probably start in Assassin's Stance for the sneak attack damage to his first strike, which will very likely be Shadow Garrote or Fan the Flames from a hidden location. If possible, he will always move after attacking, and attempt a Hide check.

He switches to Step of the Wind stance when he needs to cross rough terrain. One of his favorite tactics is to lead groups of humanoids into rough yet open terrain and then hit them with a Fire Snake strike.

If his foes resist fire, he curses under his breath and whips out his crossbow, using a combination of bolts and Shadow Garrotes to weed out his foes.

If he faces detection (thanks to a glitterdust spell or similar effect), he runs away until the effect wears off. He is a coward.
