    You've decided to take the northernmost path through the Moors, which is the path that Sibbe and her two accomplices have taken with the kidnapped daughters. Also should be the quickest route as the paths through the hills and through the forest will probably each be more difficult terrain.

    The only question was whether Freyja would hustle to keep up with the horses, or alternatively the horses could slow to Freyja's pace and everyone would incur forced march checks.

    If you haven't made a decision by the time I get around to posting IC I'll just make a call on it for you.

    The slow mode is absolutely the best option. Each horse will take 1d6 damage, and Freyja might take 1d6 non-lethal damage. Every other option is harder on the party.

    Just acquainting myself with the PF mount/ mounted combat rules, which I think I have understood as "No Ride skill + untrained mount = suck".

    Especially given this:

    I was curious about that, which is why I dismounted Gunner as fast as possible.

    Is Raging Song optional? i.e. can allies like spell casters choose to not be affected?

    Also, I'm assuming that the 3.5e rule of moving while drawing a weapon requires a BAB of +1 or better applies to PF.

    Yep pretty sure it's optional as per SRD:

    And your assumption seems correct per SRD here.

    Unfortunately I think Freyja will miss out on the AoO due to flat-feeties.

    Vikings are not bred for mounted combat. It's unholy!

    Neither are Nuklanders, as evidenced by my not-great roll even with higher ground advantage (which is the real advantage to horseback).

    How close do I think we are to our destination? Also, this creature seems to be intending to obstruct our path, yes? In a "go through me, or I'll hunt you and tear out your throats" kind of way.

    On this map (below) you are currently on the northernmost trail, where the other trail through the hills is just about to emerge from the forest and converge with your trail before entering the Barrow Lands. About 8 miles from destination. Sorry can't edit the map right now to show it as I'm at work.

    And yup, it's definitely looking obstructive. To retrace your steps and try to circumvent the bog would take some time, and wading/ swimming to bypass it feels like a very bad idea.

    Excellent
    - the Critical threat (1d20+5)[21] extra damage (4d6+10)[25], still x2 (or extra multiple) if braced.

    EDIT: if 21 confirms then 40 damage

    I think the hound is undead, so sadly no crits - hopefully double damage, though!

    If your "Axe to grind" trait applies (is Freyja the only one threatening the hound when the AoO happens?), that's another 1 or 2 points of damage.

    Sadly undead (no crit) and not actually charging (no double damage). But a nasty hit and +1 damage for the "Axe to grind" trait.

    Plus some nice saves so far.

    (1d20+1)[19] Will save of DOOM!

    Hopeful Attack... (1d20+3)[16] to hit for (1d10+4)[11] damage.

    Unless I'm panicked, that is... BOOYAH!
