Marching order
Now would be a good time for the party to discuss marching order.  I suggest you come up with marching orders for 3 situations:

1. Single file for narrow (e.g., 5 foot wide) corridors.

2. Two column marching for broader (e.g., 10 foot wide) corridors.

3. Open terrain where as many PCs can walk abreast as you might like.

Marching order
In reply to Castle Keeper (msg # 1):

As a cleric, I'm decent with melee combat (AC 16 w/shield, 14 hp, +1 BtH), but more or less useless when it comes to range attacks.  I do have Wisdom as Prime with a +2 modifier, but I would imagine that either the Ranger or Assassin (maybe the Monk?) would be better at running point.

1) Single file:  Maybe best if I'm in position #4 or #5 - at least I can cast Bless if needed

2) Two abreast:  2nd Row

3) Clear area:  I'm fine for being up front near the center, allowing folks with range weapons to be on the flanks

Just some thoughts where I could be, but am very flexible.  I guess the first question is for single file, who should lead?
