As other move into position, Xuor gets off a first shot the arrow flies straight and true striking a Drow(4)in the head.
Arrrrhhhh," he cries, as he staggers, but he does not drop the girl or fall himself (Xuor, if you have a second shot-Please post what you are doing. Also read back in the recent posts to see how I want the action posts done.)
When the target did not drop the female Xour shifted his location slightly in order to use whatever cover and concealment was available Satisfaction came from actually hitting the desired target, although Xour thought the female was probably also a drow and therefore would be of little loss. They would now be aware that there was someone with a bow around. It was after all a bit hard to miss an arrow stuck in a comrade’s head. With Brianna charging into battle Xour decided that he would next plant his two arrows into another foe. He would move again after firing. Scanning quickly for any possible spellcasters on the enemy side. (He was sure that spellcasters would not be drawing a weapon at this point). If noted those would be his main targets, otherwise any opponent near Brianna that was the clearest target would feel his sting.

Brianna has her intended targets in sight. One now had been clearly shot in the head by an arrow the other unwounded. Good shot she thinks as she plans her attack. Her first strike would be at the unwounded drow dragging the girl off and then her second strike with her off handed weapon would be the one that was wounded. Brianna strikes at their arms planning to cripple them and their ability to hold the girl. Lighning is in her right hand; Thunder in is her left.
Crossbow bolt suddenly strikes the Drow female wielding the knife, in the upper left shoulder. She bites off a cry and continues to attack.
A number of other Drow are unable to attack at this time as they are moving into position.
Xuor: uses his last action to move to another position, this one only gives him sight on the Drow he has already hit. (Xuor (Longbow, composite +3, #1) hits (8+19) AC 27 for 6 HP of damage in the Upper arm Elf, Drow 4 has received 6 hp of P, magic, damage.) This Drow drops the Drow girl’s arm and starts to move to cover. Before he can get to behind a tree Xuor’s second shot (Xuor (Longbow, composite +3, #2) hits (12+14) AC 26 for 6 HP of damage, Elf, Drow 4 has received 6 hp of P, magic, damage in the head) strikes him and he falls limply7 to the forest floor.
Lorae, Who had circled round the fighting, dismounts MoonDancer and moves to a position where she can use her bow.
Brianna Stormrider having rushed forward catches a number of the Drow by surprise. She reaches the Drow holding the Girl she concentrates on the unwounded one.
(Brianna Stormrider (Longsword +3 (Keen, Shocking burst), #1) hits (4+23) AC 27 for 14 HP of damage. Elf, Drow 5 has received 14 hp of S, magic, damage.) The Drow male staggers back, releasing the girl and uses he long sword to parry, but a might sweep on Brianna’s second sword powere through his parry. (Brianna Stormrider (Longsword +3 (Defending, Keen, Thundering), #1) hits (4+19) AC 23 for 14 HP of damage Elf, Drow 5 has received 14 hp of S, magic, damage.) Before he can move his sword Brianna comes back with a second swing of her primary sword. (Brianna Stormrider (Longsword +3 (Keen, Shocking burst), #3) hits (3+13) AC 16 for 17 HP of damage. Elf, Drow 5 has received 17 hp of S, magic, in the chest.) Mortally wounded the Drow goes down
Logan finally reaches the battle arena in time to see a Drow felled by arrows and another slashed by Brianna.
There is a sudden scream as Flame darts in from of a crossbowman about ready to shoot, a gout of fire hits him in the face and jerking he fires into the air. (Flame (Breath, #1) hits (17+16) AC 33 for 9 HP of damage Elf, Drow 8 has received 9 hp of Fire damage in the Face)
A number of other Drow race forward to try and retake the girl, but they slow as the Drow dagger weilder reaches the girl and takes up a defensive stance, when Brianna charges in and carves up one of their comrades, and a hidden bowman peppers another of their band with arrows.
All Drow and PCs are in place for actions this round. Roscoe will arrive in round four.

Xour decides to strike at the foe one more time from this position before moving. He scans quickly looking for enemy spell casters, any foe with a range weapon, or simply any foe. That was his normal method of selecting targets.
Once in positition and sure noone has noticed his approach, Logan readies his primary attack. The Sword he carries in his right hand is held spine against the arm. When he comes out from behind the Drow and makes his neck level swing at one of them, the speed at which the tip of the sword slices thru the air makes it sound almost like an arrow. Using his forearm to not only help guide his attack but also to add power to it as he has all his weight behind this. He knows if he misses, it will leave himself open, but if he hits, and hits where he is aiming, the neck, the Drows' head will fall to the ground.
His second attack is dictated by the first. If the attack goes as he hopes, he will atack the next nearest Drow with a slashing attack of the sword in his left hand. If the attack hits but not where he hopes, then he'll atack a second time(the same Drow) with the sword in his left hand. If he misses, he'll use it to parry as best he can any coutner attack.

Forward into the Fray
Brianna keeps the girl and her knife wielding protectress at her back while she clears out the nearest foes to her Again she uses her twins swords with a right left right attack this time. The extra length of her personal longswords give her an advantage with her tall stature and long arms.
Her targets are torso and head now--trying for more debilitating blows with the idea of putting them down fast and moving on. She exerts her power and if she is lucky enough to put one down in one blow she will continue to cleave into the next. With the dappled light that speckles the forest floor reflecting off her blades it makes them flash radomly with an eye-dizzing pattern of light and dark.
(Use Power attack, two weapons fightinig, improved two-weapon fighting, and two weapon defense.)

Xour having fired again. Decides to find another spot to fire on the foe. Hopefully, the condusion of battle will cause the enemy to think that there are more on the opposing side than really existed. A new spot with cover and concealment would be used for an carefully aimed arrow. He moved and then picked a target.

Brianna moves around where the girl is, basically staying to protect the her and her knife wielding protectress from any attackers. However Brianna is too experience a warrior to stay in exactly one spot. She so she around so that she does not offer herself as a standing target for tose same attackers.
Brianna keeps her twin swords weaving to heep the Drow away. Her attacks are again left, right, left at any Drow who closes into her range of her reach

Calling to Draug to come into a guard position, Xour decides to relocate to a better position and scan for possible spellcasters or anyone with range weapons on the other side after his move. Time to check around his area to ensure that he is not being hunted,
