After pouring over my "Tomes" in research, here are the facts:
All party members waited until Xavier fully crossed the bridge and deeming it safe before crossing it themselves, thereby alowing the lava to get dangerously close.
Though the lava is last in the initiative, it started out moving at 75ft/rnd and slowed due to cooling to 60ft/rnd. The lava is approx. 20 yards away from the bridge presently (60 ft).
The marching order on the bridge, gathered from information in the posts and logical order of events is:
Camille base speed 30ft/rnd (if running full speed in only one direction she can move 120ft/rnd and make it off of the bridge in 3 rnds).
Seluumiel base speed 30ft/rnd (if running full speed in only one direction she can move 120ft/rnd and make it off of the bridge in 3 rnds).
Tenacity on horseback, assuming she is riding a light warhorse base speed of horse is 60ft/rnd. It will take a full round to safely get past or pick up the two women in front of her, however, once she does, she can go into an all out canter and increase speed to 240ft/rnd and possibly make it in 2 rnds.
* balance check DC 10, +1 to check every 100ft while on bridge (riding at top speed).
Chiron, dressed in armor and carrying a chest is encumbered, therefore can only move twice his base speed on foot. If he summons his steed he also should be able to move at 240ft/rnd in a full canter.
* balance check DC 10 +1 to check every 100ft while on bridge (riding at top speed).
the lava will take 1 rnd to reach the bridge. once there it will do 10d6 damage to the ropes and wood once they are exposed to the lava.
The Fire Warding Stone Camille tied on only protects the ropes but will absorb up to 60hp of damage from the lava (the stone works like a "protection from (fire)Energy" spell as cast by a 5th level caster).
The damage rolls for 3 rnds are:
So according to all calculations and numerical facts present, the rest of the party have 5 rnds to get across the bridge and Chiron is at the most risk to still be on the bridge when bad stuff happens.

but seriously, you have a volcano erupting behind you with hot glowing lava. With a chasm between you and the lava, AND the worst of the eruption over, your campfire should be camouflaged by the background glow of molten rock (at least at a nightly visual distance of 10-15 miles off.
needs to keep moving or shut down. The last time anyone posted in the Q&A was the 17Th of July. Being in a new world all together I figured would raise some questions. Plus things are goin to get interesting I PROMISE you, if you all would get busy exploring.
Also we lost Gboy. Maybe you all knew it but I didn't. So I suppose I'll be playing Xavier from now until Gboy returns.
If there is anything the players require of me before you can post let me know here.
We're all marching in the direction of the forest now, right? Celediel said in his post that Tenacity was riding Diligence and I said in my post that I was walking along side the two of them. Xavier seems keen on moving that way also.
I think we just march until sunset or we see something of note. Celediel, Nimu, what do you guys think?
Celediel and I were wondering, is the light source in the distance actually a 2nd sun? The first post wasn't clear and I kinda ran with it. If it isn't another star, I can alter my post to fit a lesser light source.
