    You can barely make out the outline of a large figure crouching in the brush just at the top of the ledge. It's about twenty feet above the forest floor, and still about a hundred yards from where you stand. To get there you would have to circle around and approach from the north or south.

    Attempt to circle around from the North and avoid being heard, and especially seen.

    When you make it to the same level, you are able to approach unseen from the north. The large half orc from Woolshire is crouched in the bushes across a clearing that is maybe twenty feet across. His campfire smolders under a tree beside a dirty bedroll to your left.

    Jaster is tired of this other party and decides it is time to whittle them down a little. Sneak attack with the long bow.
    attack
    (1d20+7)[21]
    damage
    [roll]1d8+2d6+1[/roll]
    If the orc survives and surrenders, Jaster might get what info he can, then end his life.

    Your arrow sticks, and the half orc roars in surprise. He turns to you and for the first time you get a good look at him. He is nearly seven feet of rippling muscle covered in armor. A massive shield is supported in his left hand, and in his right is a bloodstained ax with hair and bits of gore still stuck to the head.

    Roll initiative.

    Now Jaster briefly wonders if it would be possible to kick the half orc off the cliff, but decides that is a better escape plan for him than offensive strategy. Since he won initiative, shoot the orc again.

    Your arrow pings harmlessly off his steel shield. He rushes you, snarling and bringing his ax down with a fierce swipe.

    Even getting past his shield, your attacks fail to pierce his armor. He presses his advantage, flailing madly with his ax.

    attack - (1d20+10)[13]
    [roll=damage]18+5[/roll]

    the attack missed, so I won't bother re-rolling damage.

    Right now I figure I have a 25% chance of hitting him, against a 50% of Him hitting me. A dramatic exit is probably in order. Take a running jump off the overhang and hope his AoO misses. The new plan is to set him on fire.

    AoO (1d20+10)[17], damage (1d8+5)[13]. His swing goes wide, and as you sail off the cliff you hear "Gort no forget you elf! You regret you born!"

    Drink a healing potion and get an alchemists fire in my hand. Taunting: What? Is Gort too big of a pantywaist to chase the little elf?

    You've really got his goat, and his already poor syntax degenerates further. "Gort crush elf!" He takes a running leap off the cliff, effectively charging on a leap attack.

    jump - (1d20+10)[12] DC 15
    if jump is successful, take nonlethal - (1d6)[3], add (1d6)[3] lethal damage if unsuccessful. Also, he doesn't get the +2 charging bonus if he doesn't land the jump, so subtract two from his attack.

    attack - (1d20+14)[19]
    damage - (1d8+7)[14]

    Ring of Feather Fall, best investment ever.
    Back up 5 feet (avoids the splash) and throw the alchemists fire straight at the orc.
    ranged touch attack bypasses armor and shields

    Normally, this would be a critical threat, but since he's on fire he's too distracted to take full advantage of it.

    Jaster decides to withdraw, meaning use the withdraw action and run away, then circle back to get his bow, or wait until Grog either tires and passes out, our Jaster has drunk enough healing potions to fight him. So withdraw to maximum (60 ft).

    Gort gives chase, tromping through the brush like a crazed animal.

    do I have to stop to rink my healing potions, or can I run away and drink them over my next three turns? Also, he should have taken another

    of fire damage.

    Withdrawing is a full round action, drinking a potion is a standard action, so you would have to stop to drink your potion and probably he would just hammer you. You are running through a forest though, let me just remind you. Fire damage noted.

    Just keep running toward the fort, until he gets there and the soldiers kill him, or he stops chasing me. If I can find a really big cliff with a way out, jump off of it. Shame I had to leave my long bow behind. I can get it later, maybe.

    After about half a minute Gort ceases his pursuit, but you can't tell why.
