Before Combat The P.R.A.N.K.S.T.E.R. Thugs gradually move to surround the doorways leading into and out of the room the party is in. If possible, each chooses a different studied target.
During Combat Using flanking, P.R.A.N.K.S.T.E.R. Thugs cut opponents down with critical hits from their kukri, sneak attack damage, and the studied target class ability.
Morale When reduced to 5 hp or less, a P.R.A.N.K.S.T.E.R. Thug briefly retreats to drink their potion of cure moderate wounds, returning to the fight as soon as possible.
