MENACE MANAUL: Birdfood

My party death with Birdfood last when I expected they would deal with him first so there were 7 level 6 characters against him.  Even with optimised attacking position (they attacked him while he was on the Hawk Palace balcony so he had height and range) they murdered his orc bodyguard (except one did the runner) before charming him, looting the palace and handing him over for “judgement” to Severoth,  I was tempted in turning his hawks into jet powered robots but resisted the temptation.
