    It appears that archers, once they target a PC, will never choose another as long as the original target is alive. If the original target hides behind a stone wall, runs out of range, etc, the archers stand there immobile.

    Now, while my mage absolutely loves this, the Orc commanders are extremely upset by their minions' lack of initiative.

    Hi Ipon
    Welcome aboard ! It's not just PCs that can be "saved" with that little trick. I've used it on several occasions in the Moathouse. When Lareth's guards decide to target Meleny, she just ducks back down the hallway and the crossbowmen just stand there saying "Duh..... What do we do now Lieutenant ?" ( as if an officer would REALLY know what to do :roll:) .

    The non-coms would be walking around kicking soldier (and officer) booty ala Moe Howard.
