The Maor is 30 squares east of Alex.
Straegis is 1 square east of the Maor.
Davin is is 18 squares east of Straegis.

Vangg is 6 squares south and 20 squares west of the Maor.
(So, that's 20 squares moving diagonally)

The fleeing Maor is a good 32 squares north of the attacking Maor

"My Magic will not reach him. Do we chase or run ourselves. Back to the Malbog? The inn? The woods?"

And runs towards Straegis.

(The water jet was effectively nothing, simply demonstrating that his spells won't reach the man.)
Move Action: Move 6 towards Straegis

Davin and Straegis raced toward the Stewbowl.
As they got close, two Maor emerged between them and their destination.
Straegis asked them "what?!"
One took off running; the other drew his sword and marched forward.

Round One
Init 18: Davin backed up, sending many arrows at the Maor.
Init 15: The Maor switches to his xbow and shoots ta Straegis.
... Davin disrupts one of his attacks; but not the other.
... The other one runs.
Init 14: Straegis throws an axe at the Maor.
Init 4: Alex tries to waterwhip the other as hew flees, but misses.
No Initiative Yet: Vangg steps outside.

Round Two
Init 18: Davin shoots the Maor again, and blows the hunting horn.
... Kardan and Verity both hear it.
Init 15:The Maor delays. The other one runs even further.
Init 14: Straegis charges the Maor with his sword.
Init 13: The delaying Maor tries to stab Straegis but misses.
Init 4: Alex lashes out at the one running, and then rushes towards the group.
... He asks what the group should do?!
... Davin yells to kill this one quickly, and forget the one that's running.
Init 3: Vangg is suprised and spills his coffee.
No Initiative Yet: Kardan and Verity both move towards the battle.
... Kardan reaches the porch, next to Vangg, and rolls a 20 initiative!
... Verity races closer (moving 20 out of 4224 squares) on his horse.

Round Three begins ...

Init 20: Kardan runs toward the Maor.
... Ending his turn close enough to attack next round.

Assuming Verity arrives [...] without finding anything amiss, he will slow the horse to a walk and ride to the Stewbowl.

Seeing help coming Straegis shouts to Kardan, "I'll leave you an opening, spear him!" Straegis
attacks the Maor with a well calculated blow leaving him exposed for Kardan.

Standard: Straegis attacks Maor using Warlord's Favor.

Damage=25

OOC: Kardan is +5 to hit until end of my next turn (Warlord's Favor) [...]

Move: Towards Maer
Standard (if within range): Ice Spikes on the square behind Maer, no attack roll, but he takes TWO whole damage if he steps backwards directly. But He can just go diagonal (I think) without taking damage.

He catches up to the others if he can.

OOC- I read the story, but I cannot fathom why people are chasing Straegis, and who they are? Are they sent by his father to kill/capture him for running off with the wrong scroll, or are they sent by the human/eladrin enemy since they've found out that he carries the real scroll?

Well ...

All Straegis said is that he stole the real scroll instead of taking the decoy (like he was supposed to). Nobody is sure whether his father or the rest of the Eladrin army has noticed yet, or what they'll do when they figure it out ... Court-marshal? Prison? Flogging? Execution?

Even if they haven't figured it out yet, Straegis needs to get the the scroll into the right hands (because it's obviously important, or they wouldn't have sent a multi-planar decoy); and if the Eladrin army sees him heading towards the real scroll's destination, then they'll either figure it out real quick ... or they'll jump to some other horrible conclusion.

But the real complication is: Why the decoy? Who did they expect to fool? Was it an enemy nation? Or was it somebody on the inside? Whoever it was, they're probably following Straegis and the real scroll; if not, then they're following the fake scroll which happens to be in the hands of the real messenger (which could still be heading towards the same destination as the real scroll).

So, you're not sure who the "bad guys" are; or what they'll do if they catch you; or what could happen if they get the scroll.
But you can bet it will be something bad.

Getting the scroll to it's proper destination should eleviate some of those problems, and could mitigate others. Maybe

The Maor stares briefly at Davin, then Alex, then Kardan, and then finally rests his gaze on Straegis.
He beams a wide smile, and raises his hands in re-surrender.
"So, um, what's going on? Lovely weather, isn't it?"

Somebody react.

Straegis studies Jerdayis, unsure if he remembers him or not he says, "Well sir, you've left us few
options. Where did your brother run off to and how many of you are here?"
Turning to the group
he says, "I don't want to kill him but I am not sure what choice we have, for certain we must
hurry. There are definitely more of them on the way now!"
In Elven Straegis says, "Tel ath mil

(Talk fast brother Jerdayis, your life depends on it!)


O.O.C.: Is there any way to render him unconscious? Can I make a check (athletics?) to butt end

Yup. Straegis bends down as he talks, and picks up his hand axe.

I pull my short sword from its sheath moving behind the Maor.
"Stalling? What?! Are you serio ..."

Suddenly, he teleports ... just about five yards/meters away. He stands, and turns to run toward his companions (But he's out of actions after standing; he is about 3 squares north of the PCs now).

"HURRY! IT'S OVER HERE!!" he yells.
