Combat

Norkers enjoy swarming tactics. Their weapons are simple and crudely made, but they are not averse to taking better weapons from their fallen foes. When bullied into submission by hobgoblins they can use basic military tactics, but they lapse into their old ways when not supervised.

Skills: Norkers have a +4 racial bonus on Move Silently checks.

Challenge Rating: Norkers with levels in NPC classes have a CR equal to their character level -1.

Goblinoid Subtype
