By my reckoning, we are on the fourth round now, Shard has acted thrice, but Xaxhan has yet to take an action for the third round. In the fourth so far Daiya and Grimm have both acted (and likely both missed).
So...Posty needs to post an action for round 3. Then Sal can post for Ethras, as Shard is delaying until after her to heal us, then it will be Xaxhan's turn again for round 4.
Me and Posty again
Then we'll be at the top of round 5...
Hmmm... AP or no on that roll? Assuming swordsage, she's probably got a pretty high touch AC. Might need as little as a 3, but could need as much as a 5 or 6 on the AP roll to make it count. Whaddya think?
We've been glossing over travel time, but how many weeks has it been since page 1 post 1?

Home for a second but off to work (I often work nights). Expect a post from me in ~3-4 hours.
Meanwhile if Grimm or Posty want to act again it won't affect my turn.
My 16 isn't going to be enough, either. We need to re-evaluate this battle plan. We've been steamrolling everything else up to this point. Suggestions? I think debuffs might not be a bad idea, and any direct damage (magic missile, etc) we can guarantee should help, too.
I wouldn't say steamrolling exactly...every single one of us has been close to death at least once so far, and we're burning through APs like crazy.
I'm going to heal Xaxhan this round because he is severely hurt. Daiya can cast another magic missile, but I think she has a scorching ray that might do more damage. EDIT: Should I not? If I recast True Strike this round I can maybe get her next round, but that runs the risk that she targets Xaxhan again with something nasty and lethal...
Next round, if no one is nearly toasted again I can use my Pearl of Power to recast Truestrike, and if one of you gives me a bow I can shoot her down...cuz that spell is the only way I'll hit her. Trouble is that is still two rounds away. Hopefully Daiya can hit her in the meantime with some spells. After all Swordsages aren't usually known for their massive hit point total...
Otherwise I've used almost all my combat spells for the day and don't have any debuffs.
One thing I would say is have Xachan take a 5 foot step back, so Shard can reach him for the incoming healing.
I am totally fine with healing, so I'll make the move. I'm thinking Xaxhan may cast Improvisation this round. The question is then whether or not to use the bonus points on another tanglefoot bag or just a regular arrow shot. I suppose we'll see what next round's results are.
Tek! Xaxhan and Shard could pass Xax's bow between them! Xax could cast Improvisation and pass the bow, Shard fires, then hands it back and casts True Strike while Xax fires. It's every other round, but at least we'll hit.
I'm all out of magic missiles if I want to keep a feather fall. Daiya wants to get out alive and doesn't like to use up all of her utility spells, so that's not metagaming planning either. I'll try a Hold Person next round if something different doesn't happen. Swordsages aren't known for Will Saves, are they?
Actually they are...good will save+Wisdom class synergy means they will have a high score even before counting magic items, and Moment of Perfect Mind is a huge boost to their Will Saves and is a first level maneuver...given their high level of maneuvers known there is a very good chance she took it. If she is level 6, has max ranks in Concentration and an 18 or higher wis with magic items, and a masterwork tool, she could make a Will Save as an immediate action with a bonus of as much as +15.
Scorching Ray is probably going to be more useful, if you think you can hit her with a touch attack...
