I've been pondering something for a while...In Magic: The Gathering (yes,
'that card game') the Goblin hordes have a device called a Goblin Grenade.
This is basically a bomb, too big to be carried normally, strapped to a
goblin's back.  The Goblin then makes a kamikaze run at the largest enemy
killing himself and (hopefully) the enemy.  The logic behind this is that
since the Goblins breed faster than most other humanoids, they have the
numbers to spare.  Now, what I've been pondering is wether this would work
in AD&D.  Just imagine...goblins loaded up with smoke powder grenades,
dropped out of SpellJammers who exploded upon impact...I believe the idea
was borrowed for WC2.  Well, comments?
