"Right, bows up, back off, watch for anything coming from another direction, this might be a distraction."
I'll try to maneuver the group to where it has the best sight lines to cover whatever is coming and ready my new crossbow in that direction.
Out of Character: readied action to shoot anything that is clearly hostile. Adding on another 4 rounds worth of attacks since I'm guessing that's where we're headed. In the event enough foes appear to make me concerned about our ability to hold them (Say 20 or more hobgoblins, or a lesser number of something really nasty), I'll pull out the fireball scroll made just last night and use one of the two charges on it. Note: -2 on attack rolls and ignore bane bonus damage if the target is not goblinoids, also great Cbow Critical hits on 18-20.

Seeing Jason ready his crossbow, I also ready mine and face slightly to the right or where he is aiming. If they rush us will use Energy push(Deal 2d6 damage and knock subject back. Then follow with Energy ray. Will assess afterwards, but crossbow is at the ready.
Out of Character: Will do the Energy Push, Energy Ray x2 I am also doing Precognition Defense/Offense.
Concealed within the branches, I ready to shoot from hiding at any threat that foolishly exposes itself. Ready to drop down into melee once the foes get too close, I pick targets that seem the greatest threat.
Specific Action: shooting for as many rounds as makes sense, then death from above on the closest foe. If one of them looks to be a bigger deal than others, I will target them first.
I fly around seeing what I can. Seeing a dark shape below in a large clearing I examine it closer. My insides turn to ice when I realize it sees me and what it is. I fly for all I'm worth back to my friends. I can see it rise to follow me. I don't want to lead it to my friends but I'm terrified. Flying at an angle I will pass close enough for them to see me. Hopefully they can see what is following me. I will land about half a mile from my friends allowing my pursuer to see. Running swiftly and hiding under the trees I will try to rejoin them unnoticed.
