For the right kind of money (10,000+gp), The Vengeance Squad will take on most kind of job no matter how dangerous, as long as it’s for the good of goblin kind, or damaging to the forces of Good. They specialize in assassinations, and specialized shock troops performing commando raids for gobinoid armies, but will take on short term roles as body guards for traveling dignitaries.
All the squad are expert riders and have their own Large Worgs. Hook is the only member who prefers to fight on foot.
In a combat situation the squad will try and buff up first, retreating out of range if they have been spotted.
If they are placing an ambush, after the buffs are in place, Hook will be given a couple of rounds to find a good position before Velthor lets loose with a maximized fireball.
