Soo... if I technically were to take a 5-foot step to K7 and attack one of the drow... would that be a surprise round? Just asking, you know, innocently! Not like i'm about to pick fights with drows while an army is chasing us. Of course not.

Also those are drow females and moon elf males? Darn those gender-ambiguous races.

Really? You pissed off the silly Guinness newsmen?

I'm not drinking the second potion, but Lanna isn't getting involved in this fight. I'm running from 4 wizards.

Ummm... I've done a bit of rule consulting and this is the ruling I have come up with.

1) The five-foot step is fine to integrate into your surprise action

2) Realistically, if you want to make a surprise action at this distance against an enraged opponent then it would require both a pretty damn convincing description of how exactly this happens and I would be rolling a perception check for the drow (the DC would depend on the actions that you describe).

let's not get involved in more fighting against the wrong party. Let us instead recruit them into holding off the orcs by getting them drunk as hell

It's as if everyone has forgotten we're talking about drows here. The devil's advocates. The tax collectors of the Pathfinder world. D;

Surely those Drow are Chaotic Good. Zanril is just getting mixed signals from the girls - he is a paladin, he does not understand!

To my defense, those are clearly evil-aligned newsmen. Evil-aligned Drow newsmen - Zanril is a half-elf, so there's even more natural disgust. This might be stupider than walking right into a spike trap, but how odd would it be for a half-elf paladin to just acknowledge two Drow wizards teleporting next to him out of nowhere, especially when his Detect Evil showed him their evil aura?

Yeah, Paladin's suck.

That's why more than a few have gotten killed "somehow" over the years in games I've been in and around.

My take on this: Evil exists. Paladins combat evil, but their sense of Law (LG) keeps them from killing every evil thing around (else every time he walked into a city he would have to kill off 20+% of the population) He has not witnessed an evil act that needs to be avenged (I.e. murder, torture, human trafficking etc.). He will not trust them, but will not throw his life away, just because he perceives evil...but then again it is your character...

vs a 150 orcs we need two wizards more than we need one fighter. That's two sleep spells right there even if they're only 1st level.


Im saying use that paladin Charisma and turn that frown upside down. We need allies vs a beholder riding archwizard
