Edited my previous post, it's more like 7 to 7-1/2 feet wide at the most. Maur could probably block most of it. Caerth melees a lot and Quinn is the fighter of the group.Even if its 10, one needs to pass me and eat opportunity attack...anyone else melee? Not counting NPCs
SRD said:The Surprise Round
If some but not all of the combatants are aware of their opponents, a surprise round happens before regular rounds begin. Any combatants aware of the opponents can act in the surprise round, so they roll for initiative. In initiative order (highest to lowest), combatants who started the battle aware of their opponents each take a standard action during the surprise round. You can also take free actions during the surprise round. If no one or everyone is surprised, no surprise round occurs.
Combatants who are unaware at the start of battle don’t get to act in the surprise round. Unaware combatants are flat-footed because they have not acted yet, so they lose any Dexterity bonus to AC.
