    I prefer columns, but that's fine.

    Four buff rounds, huh? Not quite sure what to do with them, but okay.

    You see a large, bald, blindfolded, and heavily scarred man in Y10. He has wings protruding from his back and is clutching a staff.

    You no longer need True Seeing to see him, and the staff in his hands vanishes. Oh, and I forget to mention that he's blinking in and out. Which he is still doing.

    Ah, turn done.

    The scarred man, still blinking in and out and waving his staff jubilantly because Blink is the best spell ever, flies to N10 (+5 elevation). Are you within 60 feet of him at any point during that movement, and if so, does Blindsight detect you? Are you within 30 feet of him at any point during that movement, and if so does Scent detect you?

    I believe my dispel still hit you, actually, unless your blink somehow had a greater than 20% misschance with my True Seeing.

    You don't detect me at any point.

    Looking annoyed, the man swigs another potion and draws a sword. "Why are you destroy Cznim's magic?" he demands in a thick accent. "It is make fight much less eenteresting."

    Still flying, he moves over to H10, and move up to +10 elevation. Same question with Blindsight and Scent applies as before.

    I just realized that I forgot to cast one of my all day buffs. Are you opposed to me adding it in retroactively at this point? I have it prepared, I just forgot to cast it.

    ...I'm unlikely to win this, so go ahead and use your full capacity. I forget a trick I have that might have stopped the Dispels from going through, but at this point I want to see what my character can do to save himself in a situation like this.

    And Knowledge (religion) would apply to my character; you know what that means. I hoped to throw you off by making an unnecessary Fort save, but so much for that.

    Anyway, actions.

    "You must be very tiny man to hide so well," Cznim observes. Flying towards where the skull came from, he adds "Come out, tiny man! I vill find you!"

    Cznim flies up to P-10 +10 elevation. If he detects you via 60' blindsight or 30' scent:
    Spoiler
    Show
    And if he's within 30 feet, Wings of Flurry. If he's more than 30' away, take a second action to approach his position.


    If not:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Ready an action to cast Stinking Cloud the next time he sees something come out of a square.


    Done.

    Something large and spiky hits you in the back of the head as you start to move. Hopefully, anyway.

    (1d20+31)[39] vs flatfooted touch AC, for (6d6+13)[34] damage.

    Does that hit, and do you continue your other actions?

    Oh, and can I see where it came from? If so, it triggers my readied action.

    It, like the rest of my stuff, is completely invisible.

    I auto pass that spellcraft.

    I'm generous though, so I'll give you direction. Higher than your starting location, directly above you.

    Edit: Wait. You can't take immediate actions while flatfooted.

    Excellent. My readied action goes off, creating a Stinking Cloud centered 15 feet above my head. DC 18 Fortitude save vs. nausea.

    EDIT: "A character who has not yet acted during a combat is flat-footed, not yet reacting normally to the situation." I've acted, so unless you have an ability that renders me flat-footed I think I can cast it.

    Yes, but does being flat-footed with respect to you make me flat-footed on an absolute scale, and thus unable to cast Wings of Cover? I can accept that it would make me incapable of casting Wings of Cover against you, in which case I'll take the damage and we can proceed.
