    Quick question: As Oakhurst does not appear on the map, where is it relative to the Aldri Forest? (North, East, etc)

    I'll start out with a small viper and switch it over to skeeter the crocodile from the backstory when we reach level 4 if that's alright.

    Jaluk is annoyed that his ear bounty idea didn't pan out. He hoped for a little extra profit. Seems like a common fantasy trope. I don't know if any of you read R.A. Salvatore, but I was inspired by the ear bounty in Promise of the Witch Kingand Road of the Patriarch. I thought it was a little weird though. The spotlessly moral and fair-minded paladin king, who wouldn't kill the evil human assassin without just cause, who dealt fairly with the devious dark elf, had a no-questions-asked bounty on monster ears. An orc or goblin is murdered without hesitation for being an 'evil' race. But drow? Benefit of the doubt.

    Yeah, it's something I've noticed with Salvatore's writing. Drizzt being good is hereditary; he's good because his father was good (and presumably his father's father and so on). When he's minutes old one of his sisters says to him, referring only to his purple eyes but on an out-of-story level Meaningfully, "What do you see that the rest of us cannot?" When Drizzt meets a good goblin the message is not that he was wrong to assume a goblin could be stabbed without hesitation but that, having learned that goblin was "I do not know that I even am a goblin," he should have taken more trouble to protect him from people who didn't know that. Bruenor gleefully tortures goblins and complains when presented with a "less fun" method of getting them to talk, and the books never seem to see a problem with this. Salvatore seems to want to make a point about how the way Drizzt is treated is wrong, but he's also very attached to the idea of Acceptable Targets.

    If I read it right we have 4 at the well, Aramil shopping (finished?) and Jaluk unknown after the Mayor. Come on, let's go kick some goblin butt!

    1) Single File: Suga, Jaluk/Aramil, Kieryian, Remi, Urnin.
    Reasoning: Suga is our brute, and is best able to handle the first arrow. Jaluk is our other primary melee right now, and can keep an eye out for Traps. I have a tendency to group casters in the middle, and have Aramil next to Jaluk since he can spot traps, has a better perception, but has spells. Kieryian and Remi are next, being primary spellcasters. This is subject to change, depending on what Remi does and focuses on later down the road. Urnin takes the rear. Ranged is where she's most comfortable, Point-Blank Shot keeps her in range for when things run up to Suga and Jaluk when they get to flanking, and can spot anything coming up behind them. Funnily enough, she's the only one with Perception Ranks and no negatives.

    2) Non-Single file:
    Two-By-Two: Suga - Jaluk, Aramil - Kieryian, Remi - Animal Companion, Urnin.
    Reasoning: Respectively, Flanking, Spellcasters in Middle, Animal Companion can move to back or front easily, Archer in the rear.
    Spreading out: Suga - Aramil, Jaluk - Remi - Animal Companion, Kieryian - Urnin.
    Reasoning: Pairs everyone up with someone who can deal damage and/or someone who has good Perception. Aramil provides debuffs to keep things still for Suga. Jaluk gets flanking from Remi's Animal Companion and summons. Kieryian can keep things back while having flexible Astral Constructs while Urnin shoots from afar.

    Currently Kieryian and Remi fill much of the same role: summoning.

    3) Watch:
    Spellcasters should stay sleeping. Tome of Battle initiators don't have to worry about resting periods. And we need people who have good Perception checks, so we aren't killed. This leaves Urnin and Jaluk for best watchers, and Suga with his Darkvision. Two people take two and a half hours of watch, while a third takes three. RAW, the only specified amount of time you need to sleep is 8 hours for spells.

    Out of all the files, the two-by-two seems the best to me. If we do single file, I would prefer to behind Jaluk, since he is melee and has higher AC. For the watch, the Animal Companion could take a shift technically.

    D'oh! Thank you. I was thinking it was something I could have done.

    How high is the AC's perception? I couldn't see it on Remi's sheet.

    Small viper, right? +7 Perception.

    I'm fine with Cardea's suggestions concerning marching order. Remi and Kieryian would be physically rested after just four hours, but sadly even just keeping an eye out would get in the way of whatever elven spellcasters end up doing for the other 4 hours. If we ever end up needing to set up a watch on days where we haven't had to expend any magic, we'll be able to double up on watch or the elves could take the entire watch if we're not expecting super-sneaky trouble.
