A small but deadly group within the Raven Roost= bandits are their alchemist grenadiers. Trained to craft and use a variety= of deadly munitions, they mostly join in battle against attempted invaders= or especially well defended caravans as their fire bombs risk igniting wag=ons of saleable merchandise. When any attackers move upon Raven Roost the a=lchemists are brought out in force, coating the battlefield in smoke, oil, =and fire to control movement and burn out the bandits’ foes.
