Clarification: Am I correct in assuming that the 'scrub' counts as undergrowth and thus inhibits movement (and, say, charges) as difficult terrain?
It's all about vision and making reality conform to your vision. By dropping a fucking house on it.

Nah, it's not that thick until you hit the actual forest. It's more like the light undergrowth in the hills terrain section:

Quote
Light Undergrowth

Sagebrush and other scrubby bushes grow on hills, athough they rarely cover the landscape as they do in forests and marshes. Light undergrowth provides concealment and increases the DC of Tumble and Move Silently checks by 2.

So you could run right up to the edge of the forest, but then you'd enter the "sparse forest" terrain, which would have some squares that count as "occupied" by trees, and hence would prevent charging/running through them.

Should I put up a map?

Sure, why not.
This means about half the rolls I just did on IC are obsolete, but that's okay because it means I can actually attack the damn thing. :D The wolf is just at the edge of the forest, right?

EDIT: Per Tome rules, anyone can Power Attack for double damage no matter what weapon they're using. Is that correct?

I think that's right. I'd rather just resolve this like this. Pretty much either you guys would have killed it quickly, or it would have alerted it's allies and/or escaped. I don't want to bother drawing up a map for that. :D

So, uh, what's the plan here, folks? Is Xuuvosic saying it would be better to just run in and blow shit up, or are we sneaking in and getting intel?

I meant to suggest that Ris-Janna (and Marlowe?) scout but not engage. Once we have proper intel, unless we discover something that changes things, Raoul would initiate the attack with a big AoE blast.

Given our own invisibility I think it'll be good enough for your blasts to manifest out of thin air and still be visible. I think they'll still be surprised. :P

Yeah, but consider the inherent fun of popping a few invisible Evard's Black Tentacles on the unsuspecting masses.

I'm all for scouting and then having Raoul nuke them (and perhaps Cade punching people in the face) while RJ and Marlowe go for the head or heads in the confusion.

I'd also like to know what the Int 7 thingie is.

Finally, Ris-Janna would want to take five minutes while they're wandering through the forest to switch prepped maneuvers around - unreadying Shadow Jaunt and Cloak of Deception for Burning Blade and Wolf Fang Strike. Possible? :D
(She's also, of course, always in Island of Blades Stance unless noted otherwise to save actions when combat begins. ;))

@Phaedrus: I think Agita is just rolling Move Silently because he's hoping to get invisibility from one of Xuuvosic's pets.

He has it. You can hide while invisible though.

If you are invisible, you gain a +40 bonus on Hide checks if you are immobile, or a +20 bonus on Hide checks if you’re moving.
There's a really quick way to resolve this: Can whatever it is beat a 47 (1+26+20) with a nat 20 on a Spot check? :P
That's a good point, though, I tend to forget that you can spot invisible creatures in D&D if you try hard enough. :D

See... I'd rather you just roll, rather than ask me if something can beat it. That way, I don't have to tip my hand at all. ;)

So it's your laziness vs. my laziness. Since you're the DM, I'll probably budge. :lol

Edited in the Hide roll, plus Spot and Listen.

Ok... are you guys staying out of undergrowth, since you're invisible and don't need concealment? Here is what undergrowth does:
