    The druid does not apparently notice the others leave, talking to himself or possibly even the silent one, whose name he has obviously not yet learned, "I also had a nice crop of new stuff that I had found in the forests of Metito along with the elves. Now there is a group of blokes that knows how to party. They got a century or two on me, and thats just in this particular generation!" He blinks, "Orcs?"

    You're barely able to make your way through the cowardly deckhands who have no desire to fight this battle when there are five perfectly good warriors to defend the boat. Also, you're pretty sure you heard a few murmurs about their "new Yolinchet technology."

    Upon reaching the top, you see a large number of orcs scattered about the boat. Chances are, there's even more below deck. In the Crow's nest, you see one peculiar bald, who's missing an eye. He's definitely powerful, but he seems quite distracted at the moment, reading loudly from a book, causing the orcs to be quite...rowdy.

    As Brother Folip steps out, he is a little bit caught of guard. "Is... is that a preacher?"

    When the allarms are sound, a sigh is heart from the top bench at the right sight of the teams quarters. A few more seconds pass and then the man known as Mr. Snow rolls out of his bed and drops down to the floor, landing on his legs asif he had never done anything else. With some grumbling the balding old hulk grabs his long grey coat and buckles up a broad belt with rapier on one side and two cases of bolts on the other. He grabs his crossbow from the table and pushes open the door while grumbling some more.
    He follows the rest upstairs, already knowing what to expect thanks to his trusty familiar sitting on a first row seat at the front deck.

    Through bleary bloodshot eyes the strange little gnome watches the last of his unwilling companions leave him alone. With a sneeze his overly large nose changed shape to something of a beak and his eyes grew somewhat larger. With a sigh, "Oh, orcs. Well, lets get nuts, we can get stoned later." In a swift change the remainder of his body drastically changed, his equipment disappearing as feathers sprouted all across his body. A flap of his wings and he was off with a bolt of speed, heading up to observe the battle.

I was still waiting for the combat post that explains where we all are in relation to our opponents and the orcs and what the situation is in terms of cover and etc. I don't know what to do because I don't know where everything is yet, or even how far away the closest orc was.

    Also, the Mast provides total cover.

    And are you "sneaking up?" Or walking up? Cause you might want to roll for MS, and Hide (using the stairs for some concealment... there isn't much concealment on the boat) Bah, they're Orcs, doubt they'll see you.

    As Mr. Snow appeared on deck, he noticed the orcs were just about to cross the planks. Great, just great... First that annoying bastard and his prayer, or what ever it is he is doing... As he had been watching up, mister snow hadn't seen the tibbit in hiding and almost stepped on top of one of her appendages. He didn't really care though. If she was weak, she wouldn't have been brought along.
    He lifts up the crossbow and uses the other arm to stabalize for a clean shot.

    Right after a bird flies from the stairs to the skies, Orcs rush across the ship, they are stricken down. One gets a nice bolt in the face, another gets simultaneously burned and stabbed. But it seems that for each one that is struck down, two more appear, stabbing with their pointy sticks, slashing with their swords, or just plain head bashin'... to no avail, as they all miss ((-_-' cursed orcs))

    Luckily, their sail seems to have "caught fire." This, as a result, has caused a couple of Orcs to jump ship before their leader was able to calm them, through more prayers from that book.

    Brother Folip stood there gazing at the spiritual leader before waddling over towards an orc by Mister Snow, and promptly smashing him in the face.

    "Wow, these orcs are really weak!" Seraphina remarks cheerfully. Suddenly, she disappears in a cloud of inky shadow that swirls into itself, shrinking rapidly until it vanishes entirely within the span of a second.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Shadow Jaunt -- you said it's 50 feet from mast to mast, and Sera's already a little beyond the mast on her ship, so the target is right by the mast on the other ship, where it looks most likely Sera won't be under direct observation anymore. Then she immediately uses her remaining move action to flatten herself against the mast of the enemy ship and attempt to hide again. Move Silently: (1d20+13)[26] Hide: (1d20+17)[23]

    Edit: Assuming your map is showing our ship being the one swarmed with orcs. If there are still a lot of orcs on the other ship, she'll still do it, but she may end up not trying to hide if a lot of orcs are there looking right at her.

    The shape changed druid flies down to land upon the mast above the religious sounding orc, trying to hear what he's saying. As he is shape changed he looks just like a normal bird, having chosen to look like a seagull for the moment, though his feet look rather odd, what with having talons.

    You know, I wasn't sure about that either at first, as I'm still getting used to swordsages myself. But then I found it on page 39, under "Concentration," fourth paragraph: "You do not provoke attacks of opportunity when you initiate a manuever or stance unless its description explicitly says otherwise." Which nothing in Shadow Jaunt's description says you provoke an attack ... so no. It does go on to point out that if you do things other than initiating the manuever that may provoke AoOs, you still do unless the manuever explicitly states otherwise (for example, if I took a move action that passed through a threatened square before or after using the Shadow Jaunt, that move action would provoke an attack unless I tumbled to avoid it).

    You've poofed away, leaving the Orcs behind and confused. Back on the other ship, you can see that most of the Orcs on the deck are gone, but you do hear more clamoring from the stairs.


    Mister Snow lets out another bolt, one that is quite ineffective. As he walks toward the loosely placed planks, he gets hit by two orcs, who deal a total of 15 damage.

    The Fire continues it's rise up the sail, but the Preacher is unfazed.

    The Paladin smashes another Orc, killing it. He yells out towards Mister Snow, "Hey, you dieing already?"

    Briefly, Seraphina steps from behind the cover of the mast, closing her eyes as she presses the forefinger and thumb of each of her hands together and then "pulls" a thin strand of shadowstuff from nowhere. Her eyes snap open, and she whirls and whips the strand up at the crow's nest, aiming for the throat of the preacher orc, before just as quickly flattening herself against the mast again.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Ranged touch attack (Shadow Garrote): (1d20+9)[21]

    On a successful hit: damage (5d6+3)[22] (base Shadow Garrote damage plus Insightful Strike damage bonus -- it's not within 30 feet, so I didn't include sneak attack this time) and DC 16 Fortitude Save to avoid becoming flat-footed until the start of its next turn

    Hide check: (1d20-3)[10] (applying the 20-point penalty for hiding after a single attack)

    Stance should still be Assassin's Stance for now.


    Edit: The above assumes Sera can get line-of-sight to the orc's neck from right at the base of the mast. If not, Sera will just ditch her cover and take a move action to get where she can do the attack (skipping the re-hide attempt).
