Worst case scenario, Lobinha has a +24 Diplomacy modifier with her draconic aura so she could negotiate down to 24 GP bribe even if she rolls a natural 1.

Since it seems like we're not being "threatened or distracted", can Lobinha and/or Anoitecer take 10 on diplomacy?
Yes.

If you want to switch auras, cast spells, change disguises or do any other special preparations, you may do so now.

Else I will skip ahead to Zilla Gravesend's place.

Lobinha switching draconic aura to senses just out of paranoia, otherwise everything else remains the same.

Nope, all my preparation is in being not-dead.

... if I break cover, like, now, and go into full "WTF is the mortal church saying *now*" mode, will people be annoyed?

I will be annoyed if it costs me a surprise round. So naked belligerence is probably annoying, yes. :p

... I assumed we were having some kind of dialogue and IDK if you get a surprise round if the other people know you are there at all - I thought you didn't

I mean, we could attempt dialogue with the super-prissy moral fanatics terrorising the person we need to speak to to force them into their little sect, complete with armed soldiers looking for a fight, but I have no social graces and apparently these sorts of people get in fights with the red guard a lot, so we can just pass the blame later on. They're not the ones important to our goal and less loose ends is easier to manager.

As for other people knowing you're there...

This is why I'm good at stealth. :lmao

Sure. Then I guess Zadkiel is going to be taken by surprise by the violence as much as your targets, since escalating to direct combat in the middle of the street, vs. a bunch of nuns is not in her MO.

Expect a lecture at the end, I suppose.

The alley isn't well-lit, and there are enough weeds and other clutter to get enough concealment to make it to the cart in lowest gear.

The nun (the only one who would have had a shot at spoiling the ambush) can't even spot the broad side of a barn, so Yuki gets a surprise round.

Everyone can already roll initiative for after the surprise round.

The nun is disabled at exactly 0hp.

If anyone can win init and plink her for 1 more damage, that might be great. She might be able to heal... :lmao

Actually I should verify if there is still a surprise round. Otherwise, only my initiative roll will be cursed for now.

Unless you also want to try to stealth your way in, surprise round goes only to Raineh.

Fair. Okay, had something in mind but don't want to delay things any longer so go ahead and start us if you have all the Init.
Hmm.

24: Zadkiel
20: Lobinha
18: [NPC] Nun + Teen Girls
17: [NPC] White Guards
16: Maxim
12: Yuki
10: Mist
7: Anoitecer

Yuki doesn't profit from Osle's Ini boost as she is too far away, but wouldn't have made a difference anyway.

I'm assuming that Lobinha will hold her action until Anoitecer can turn her into a Miss Wet T-Shirt candidate?

Even if the readied action can't be triggered before actual combat, Lobinha still has ranged attacks she would use before getting wet.

The readied action would have been useful with telepathy, hand signals or the like to coordinate it inconspiciously with Yuki's ambush without spoiling the surprise round, but as it stands Anoitcer seems to be unable to see the forest for all the trees.
