As Jace is currently mid-Curse, please do try find a peaceful way to keep them more than 25 feet from the Elk (unless they're hostile anyway, in which case aim them at the evil cleric that wants to brainwash them with cursed elkmeat)

Ok, how tall are the Orcs? I'm planning to fly about 4ft above their heads.

Medium size. And just to cut the speculation and get to the action - the orcs don't look friendly. They look mean and drunk.

Edit: Just to make sure that's clear - they rolled out of the cave entry already brandishing various weaponry.

I haven't found anything in the Player Handbook about this, but is there some rule or penalty that would make me reconsider shooting someone with my crossbow when they're attacking me in melee range?  I'm debating whether I should pull my dagger out after shooting, but I can't find a reason why I shouldn't just continue to shoot the orcs up close and personal.

Well even 'Point Blank' range is from 30 to 6 feet. I assume any close and its easy to prevent the weapon from aiming properly. And of course using your ranged weapon as a melee weapon requires a check to see if it breaks... well it does for bows at least.

*scratches head* For lack of any better clarification I'd say what SK said is true - if below minimum range for point blank, as described in specialization, the enemy is too in-your-face to shoot properly.

Just so you all realize, I'll be fairly useless with my dagger.

Are any of the orcs next to me ones that were hurt?  It's amazing that I have yet to be hurt, but with two swings incoming that probably isn't going to last...

Is it time for some "retrograde motion"?

Nope. The one you shot charged at Micheal, and the other is obviously laying smackdown on Sho Lee Wu.

Edit: Backing away (with face to the enemy) is done at 1/3 speed.

Hmm, being still uninjured, I shall be brave and fight for now.

Edit: hehehe, I can smell the TPK coming.

And still unscathed!  Maybe I'll be the last to die.

You had already rolled the orcs' attacks when you said this, I bet :(
