About Kara Giantbane

Botting Kara:

Kara prefers to find from a distance, using her trusted crossbow. She reloads her crossbow as a move action. Reloading does not provoke if she has at least 1 grit. She does not have precise shot (yet) and will maneuver to get the best shot without taking cover penalties.

If there is a situation in which she can not take a 5 foot step to a place where she can safely shoot without provoking she will use her waraxe or switch to morningstar if the opponent has DR vs piercing

If Kara is at full grit she will expend one use of grit to shoot her next bolt vs touch AC. She will expend other grit points if opponents are very well armored and her party members have a hard time hitting. I won't mind if she expends all her grit in one combat, feel free to use it

Kara regains one grit point in the following situations:
- confirm a critical hit with crossbow
- killing blow with crossbow
in both situations the opponent must have at least 1 hit die and not be helpless or unaware of Kara.

Kara has expendables, but is not quick to hand them out. She expects that everyone should be able to fend for themselves. If the need is obvious she will share, lecturing the party member in question that he should be better prepared next time.

Kara normally uses cold iron bolts, but switches to silver and adamantine if someone says that that it better against the current target or she experiences that her bolts do not work as good as expected. She tries to retrieve all her missed bolts.
