Go ahead and post your character's initial reactions to the shout of "Fire!".  Also, roll initiative. :-)

Really confused about my positioning.

My intro post had me hovering near the entrance (whichever the one the general public uses), which embarrassed her slightly and backfired when Brand's more enthusiastic entrance almost-knocked me over.  She then stumbled forward a few feet to retrieve her blade, which had slipped free of her belt.

So is there a particular reason you have her all the way in the back of the room by the councilors?  As far as I can tell, that's pretty far off from where I put her.

I can work with it, but it just struck me as kind of weird, clashing with my mental picture of the scene.

Nope.  I misunderstood what you were doing.  Will change your positioning. :-)

So, does anyone have access to Create Water or a similar effect?  If not, we're going to have to figure out a more mundane way to put that fire out - I didn't see any large water sources in the council chamber :)

Okay.  Bear with me as we work through this first encounter.  We'll figure out what works for us and what doesn't in this format as we go.  Might be a little bumpy for a couple of rounds here.  So, everyone has reacted initially and I've gotten everyone's Initiative and updated the post with it.  Here's the situation...

The fire looks like it is spreading fairly quickly.  Someone or something is definitely causing it as it is spreading faster than a natural fire in this situation would.  It's already filled up 4 squares at this point after just a couple of seconds.  The crowd looks like it is going to panic.  The councilors are shouting for the crowd to maintain calm but it is having a limited affect.

We'll start the first true round now in Initiative order.  Write out narratively** and then in blue text under the narrative tell me what you want to try with your 3 actions.  If you can make it fit into one of the actions outlined in the Core Rules, do so.  If you aren't sure, just say what it is you want to try and I'll determine which action it is and what you need to roll.  I might roll for you just to speed things along.

Questions?

when do the citizens councillors and fire act?

Can we just post once we see the person in the initiative order before us post?

Yes.  I'm going to have the NPC's go at the end of the round, assuming they aren't as quick to react to danger as the party.

I edited my post to include actions. For your convenience:

Move to H15 (2 actions)
Organize a bucket brigade: Darkell rolled 17 using 1d20+4.  Request (Diplomacy).
