Phaeton nods.  "I agree with your assessment.  Perhaps we might even be able
to avoid a fight completely.  Killing them might make return very

It isn't quite recognizable, but appears to be of Triax manufacture.

Either the riders are still too distant, or there is no supernatural evil

Kyle scans the area.  The land slopes down to the east and west, but
continues as a ridge to the north and south.  Perhaps a quarter mile away is
a thick knot of dark trees, some sort of evergreens, which make up the only
substantial cover for several miles.  Farther to the north Kyle can see what
looks like the edge of a large forest of oaks and willows, and at the very
limit of his enhanced visual systems, what looks to be a tremendously
gigantic tree sitting atop a leyline.  But this forest must be at least
twenty miles away, and for those on feet, it would take far too much time.

Lena speaks up, "I say Amanda!  She's tough and can at least slow 'em down."
