Keeping with the party, Ralston kept his eyes peeled to make sure he knew the location of his partners. As he entered the city proper with them, he watched Xaxil approach one of the buildings, moving up as well, thought not as far as the other man.
He turned and watched as Eldon weaved a bit of magic about himself, obviously the halfling had the same thoughts as Ralston. This place seemed quite uninviting at present. He readied his shield and heavy mace, watching Xaxil for the moment to see if anyone answered him.
Ready my shield for my standard action, then move to H4 and draw my mace during the move.
