Taking a place next to Ghost using the group que, I'm relieved to have space on the front line and finally be able to use my sword. Shield up and acting defensively (AC: 22 Until something is in melee range). I call out to the biggest Hobgoblin I can see and stare him down.
Out of Character: Stare down indicates the Iron Guard is in effect, due to it's divine nature, it is impossible to miss and he knows that any other target would be harder to hit. If we are already in melee range by the time we set up our line, I will still act defensively until my first strike.
