OOC: A little more...

Alex sees an entire contingent, probably around twenty men in dark 
robes, leap out of the woods.  The mounted riders leap off their mounts 
and to the ground, kicking their horses to get them out of the way of 
any potential firefight.  She also sees a number, possibly three or 
four, of the shadowy figures suddenly disappear into the tall grass. 
She can follow their movement for some distance towards her, but they 
are exceptionally good and carefully keep their movements timed with the 
breeze so that their exact position is hard to track, though Alex is not 
fooled by it.  But she needs no special tracking skills to know that 
they are making their way towards her in a flanking pattern.
