Special Traits

  • Nimble Escape. The grenadier can take the Disengage or Hide action as a bonus action on each of its turns.

  • Spellcasting. The grenadier is a 1st-level spellcaster. Its spellcasting ability is Intelligence (spell save DC 14, +6 to hit with spell attacks). The goblin has the following spells prepared:

  • Bomb. Ranged Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, range 20/40 ft., one target. Hit: 26 (6d6+5) fire damage, and the target and all creatures within 5 feet of the target must succeed on a DC 16 Dexterity saving throw or catch on fire. Unattended flammable objects automatically fail.
