The knight, Sir Burton, sits up straight, looking stunned.  "No, you 
don't un..."

With that the company sees the flash of laser fire coming from the 
south.  There's a cry of pain and they hear someone fall to the ground.

Quite suddenly everything explodes into action.  Probably around twenty 
black figures, looking not unlike ninjas, explode out of the underbrush 
or leap from the trees.  With impressive speed they're energy rifles are 
out and aimed in the direction of the weapons fire.  Meanwhile, the 
riders leap off their horses and kick them to make them flee back into 
the woods, or at least out of the line of fire.

Within moments [OOC: a melee] at least nine guns are already aimed to 
the south.  Several of the black figures disappear into the grass again, 
though there is the faint suggestion of movement southward.

The Knight looks at Justin and Osiris.  "I think you have not been 
completely forthcoming with me.  I was distracted by the Splugorth 
attack, but should have seen the signs of secret conversation.  Best 
tell me whether that shot was from one of yours now, or if my men find 
it on their own, it will go badly for all of you."

While several guns are pointed to the south, a number are pointed at the 
company as well.
