Army preparedness: 15 Squads of Hobgoblins assigned to functions at the base (5 Squads = 40 Hobgoblins, 5 Captains) 1/3 of base defenders are on active duty 1/3 of base defenders are eating or socializing or training 1/3 of base defenders are sleeping at any given moment 1/3 of patrol units are resting 1/3 of patrol units are eating, socializing or training 1/3 of patrol units are on patrol Raiders are out on missions. All Active Duty base defenders are armed and armored (5 squads). Half of the Hobgoblin squads rounded down (2 squads) eating, socializing or training are wearing armor All of the sleeping Hobgoblins are unarmored. (5 squads) 7 Squads armed and armored 8 Squads unarmored. Hobgoblins wear heavy armor (Chain Mail & Shield): 10 Minutes to don. Hobgoblin Captains wear medium armor (Half Plate): 5 Minutes to don. Hobgoblin Warlord wears heavy armor (Plate Mail), but has attendants to help him put it on: 5 minutes to don. Unarmored Hobgoblins w sword & shield have AC 13 (Dex + Shield) Unarmored Hobgoblins w/Longbow have AC 11 (Dex) Goblin Warriors have light armor (Leather & shield) 1 minute to don. Goblin support workers do not have armor or shields, AC 12 (Dex) and are armed with knives (1d2 piercing dmg) or hatchets (1d4 slashing) Goblin ‘Chefs’ have knives and boiling pots of stew. Improvised Weapon, thrown 5/10 ft, 1d6 scalding damage, creatures struck by boiling stew make a CON save DC 11 or be stunned for one round. (So yes, stew is always thrown at disadvantage) Goblin Pariahs have shovels, pitchforks, rags and zero morale (non-combatant) Bugbears wear medium armor AC 16 (hide or chain shirt + shield) 5 mins to don, + 1 minute to rouse from laziness unless burrow invaded (then no armor). Weapons: Everyone who has a weapon has it on their person, on a weapon rack nearby (command center) or under their bed (dwelling). Ammunition: Hobgoblins have 20 arrows in their quiver Goblins have 2d6 + 3 arrows in their quivers Watchtowers have ammo crates with 100 arrows Supply carts have enough ammo to re-supply each warrior 4 times. Destroying a cart eliminates one unit of supply from the Hobgoblin Warcamp. Mounts: The three Carrion crawlers are always present, ready to be ridden by the Goblin Boss and his 11 bodyguards in teams of four. One holds a lantern out in front of the Carrion Crawler to steer, the other three use their shortbows or scimitars. If the lantern bearer is slain the carrion crawler starts moving where it wants. The mounts for two of the patrols will be present 12 Worgs (Goblin patrol) or 9-18 Dire Wolves (Hobgoblin Patrols) Their riders will not be on active duty. Riders joining the fray spend an additional minute saddling their mount starting from when they get to it. Patrols: Given the Watchtowers are 40 feet tall, commanding a view of 9 miles (1 & ½ hexes), it takes most of a patrol’s shift to reach the limits of the tower’s line of site and return to camp. Upon leaving the limit of a watchtower's vision, patrols can probe an additional 3 miles in any direction and see an additional 3 miles ahead of their position on flat terrain w/o obstructions. Patrols that detect hostile forces can raise the alarm by blowing horns. This puts the Warcamp on alert, giving all the available forces time to don their armor and take position or assemble to set out. The fewer the number of obstructions between the watchtower and its line of sight, the less valuable patrols are. Especially if the War Camp itself is situated at a higher elevation than the surrounding area. Watchtowers: Hobgoblins/Goblins present in the tower rely on their passive perception to notice movement until their Squad Leader comes for their report. If their passive perception detects movement, the soldier will attempt an active perception roll to determine what it is. If movement is spotted but the source cannot be identified, the soldier makes a check each round after notifying his squad leader. Squad Leaders make their rounds four times during a shift. When asked to report, the soldier on duty makes a perception check. PCs passing the 6000 ft mark with an unobstructed line of sight are subject to a perception check by soldiers in the relevant watchtowers as the Hobgoblins know the minimum distance needed to ready themselves. If Goblins are in the towers, this additional check does not occur due to their sub par discipline. Once per morning the priest will ascend a tower to attempt to determine the weather. If warning is given, the Devastator takes position in the tower closest to the oncoming threat and casts Ice storm at 300 feet. Alarms: No Alarm = If the PCs approach undetected, there are 45 Hobgoblins on active duty ready to fight. Two of those squads will be in the command center. The others at the supply carts, gates and towers with their squad leaders making rounds around the camp or in the officers mess or reporting to the general in the command center. If intruders are detected in the camp and the alarm goes out. On duty soldiers rally, off duty and sleeping ones start getting ready to join the fray (putting on armor). Once the Alarm goes off enemies will join the fray in intervals of: Immediately - non-support enemies within line of sight 1 round - Soldiers in armor at the ready 1 minute (Goblins with Light armor) 2 minutes (Goblin Worg Riders & Carrion Crawler teams) 5 minutes Hobgoblin Captains & Warlord 6 minutes Bugbears & 10 minutes Hobgoblins (Chain mail) 11 minutes Hobgoblin Dire Wolf Riders Squad leaders may order their squads to engage with just their shield (if they have one) and weapon depending on the threat. Support workers either cower or prepare buckets for fire fighting detail. Early Warning (patrol) = All combatants ready, Assailants might not yet know where Warcamp is located (not within line of sight on flat terrain) Tower Warning: If spotted at max range even a galloping horse would only make it 8 miles closer in an hour. Min range to spot and be prepared is 6000 ft (10 minutes of move 30, dash 30) Difficult terrain halves this distance to 3000 ft.
