You should probably be prepared to be part of the force downing fliers. You and Junetta share the trait of having a combat score of 3. Since MarbitChow has confirmed that, as a defender, you will be able to have a delayed action prepared for the faeries' entrance, you may be able to fire off two spells in one round against them. The soonest they can move in is Com =4 and Bill, Triage, and T. Coil will have had to use or lose their round 0 delayed actions by then. (Those 3 can still use their round 1 delayed actions to target faeries if they enter at com =4, but if Vinny and Junetta use delayed actions to do the same at Com =4, they will get a second shot at Com=3.) If possible you may want to be waiting out of Rlos near a tower's ladder, ready to climb it at Com 6 or 5. (After the enemy Archers have had a chance to enter the hex and fire on other targets.)
(By the way, when examining the problem of how to place our NPC melee units, I noticed that the inside structure of the garrison has alot of inconveniently placed walls that will restrict the access of units inside the garrison to the doors. There are 6 spots with 1 square access to the door squares, 4 with 2 move access, 3 move access: 8, 4 move: 8, 5 move: 10, 6 move: 14, 7 move: 4, and 4 for the next several catagories after that.)
As far as Tod's position for the first round goes: If we're going to stick with the plan of having our melee stay indoors for the start of the fight, I want to start this battle on the wall, right above the middle of the gate. Before the enemy has the chance to enter the hex I will run to the ladder screaming "The only reason to name a mount is if you're particularly fond
of it", climb down and get on a waiting mount. (Like I'll have anything better to do. At least this way, I can insult the enemy Warlord and hopefully boost our troops' morale. (If you don't get why this is an insult, don't ask.))
