Here we go...
I will take initiative from everyone.
Swarbrick is fast... sometimes...
There are times when he can be too fast, though. You know. Prematurely fast.

That sounds like someone else's problem, really.
Also, Jeff is incommunicado at the moment. You might want to roll for him.

Tal, Dookie gets a standard action before the attacking warforged in the surprise round.
One step SE from her current position. Punch warforged in the face. Scream shrilly.
For context, Dookie is wearing an alchemical silver spiked gauntlet, so this is not an unarmed strike.
Sorry Tal if it wasn't clear in my text but the grate cannot be passed through or occupied.
The lines drawn are walls. Basically, the enemy Warforged is standing in the tunnel/ stairwell, which the party just exited, flanked by both walls. Wrench is the only PC that can actively engage without hindrance with the Warforged. Swarbrick can attack too, however, the Warforged has hard cover against the Changelings attacks and vice versa.
No, it was clear. I just missed it somehow.
Dookie will scream loudly about the warforged trying to ambush us from behind, and then delay until at least after the warforged.
Surprise Attack. Plus Initiative.
Thanks for your patience. Vicks is up.
Swarbrick looks unimpressed and swings his rapier at the warforged. After taking the swing, he takes a 5 ft step back to allow No One (or anyone else to move in and get an attack).
Swarbrick comments to No One, "Your turn!"
Attack for No One.
Dookie waves her spiky fist at the hostile warforged, and shouts in frustration, "Wrench! Will you please either beat him down or stop cockblocking me?!?"
Tal is up!
I am a ninja.
So...delaying your action or readying and action?
No, that was by way of being the whole thing. Nobody's injured, and the only valid spaces Dookie can move into are further away from the warforged. Unless another hostile shows up, she can't really do much that's productive.
