Oz doesn't do a terribly good job prowling. In fact, he manages to
step on enough dry sticks to let someone half a mile away know he's

But it does not matter. In a few minutes he sees black columns of
smoke and when he approaches, he sees many trees blown away or on
fire. There are at least two dozen bodies here, some in power armor.
In the midst of it he sees the guardsman leaning over the wreckage of
familiar Samurai-styled SAMAS power armor; Justin's power armor.

As Oz makes his way to the guardsman, he can see what happened.
Clearly a trap was laid, probably by a few men in the trees or the
brush. While a SAMAS would have no problem with that, clearly they
managed to keep Justin pinned long enough for some men in Triax power
armor to get on the scene. Justin clearly put up one helluva fight,
but there's only so much damage any armor can take.

Justin's power armor is devastated. One leg is missing above the knee,
the arm with the railgun is shorn off, though the other hand has an
energy rifle that Justin clearly used to keep firing once he could no
longer use the railgun. There's a fist-sized hole in the right side of
the chest of the power armor that looks like it penetrated all the way

The guardsman is trying desperately to pull of the power armor off.
