    So, what does everyone set their line up as?

    1.Rogue/ ranger
    --> goes first
    2.Fighter/barbarian
    --> comes next
    3.Cleric/wizard
    --> is in the middle
    4.Bard/Artificer
    --> near the middle
    5. Fighter/Barbarian
    --> back up fighter to cover the rear

    How does everyone else do it?

    In my present group I'm in front as I'm the Paladin, the Rogue is behind me, and the Ranger is in the back because he's our ranged fighter. The rogue usually wanders around and throws rocks at our foes for 1d3 damage-he actually killed one once

    Give your rogue some thunder stones!

    Combat Order:

    1. Fighter/barbarian
    --> comes next
    2. Rogue/ ranger
    --> goes for flank or 5' step back for increased range for ranger
    3.Cleric/wizard
    --> is in the middle
    4.Bard/Artificer
    --> near the middle
    5. Fighter/Barbarian
    --> back up fighter to cover the rear

    Very nice but what about rear attacks & flankers?

    Since we added 2 more players to our group last Saturday, this is the primary way that we travel, when possible.

    Human Ranger
    Dwarf Fighter / Dwarf Fighter
    Dwarf Fighter (Thief) / Elf Mage / Half-Elf Druid
    Elf Cleric / Half-Elf Mage/Thief
    Half-Elf Bard / Dwarf Fighter

    This setup is used since we have been traveling outside. We try to keep the Elf Mage in the center because he only has 4 Hit Points (all first level characters).

    I like to have it as Cigamnogard does, although I've been in groups where the Rogue/Ranger is a wuss and won't scout ahead.

    Yes, point can be dangerous. But, you really get a good idea of the intelligence of the monster(s) if they wait for the rest of the party or just go for the point man/woman.

    That is why I am never the Point man.

    Yeah, but the smarter ones wait until you get past and hit the Squishies The dumber ones that get Point Man you can probably handle

    I think a little context might help with answering this question. Because I could answer it like this...

    1st
    Chatty guy
    Drink gifter
    Tank/muscles
    Nerdy guy
    Designated Driver/Liaison
    Last

    So, were you talking about party order while walking through a dark, dangerous dungeon hallway? Or crowded tavern?
