Sarah breaks off from the group for a moment and approaches the Prince. She forms a diamond with her index fingers and thumbs, fingertips up, as she speaks with Rebekka, then twists her hands until her thumbs are pointed upwards instead. A hurried discussion that includes the Councilor follows, which ends when Morgaine nods her head. She then mimes a pulling motion towards her, and kneels, going through the motions of pulling something out of the ground. Rebekka and Sarah come to your group while Morgaine does this.

"Sarah has pointed out something concerning the timing and appearance of the arrival of our guests. There is a movie called Supergirl." The Prince trails off as Sarah makes the same flipping diamond motion.

"Yeah, I get it," says Uma. "That's how it'll look when they arrive?"

"Yes. It is to be hoped that the disorientation will give us an extra edge at the start of the confrontation." Uma nods and explains to anyone who doesn't understand what's up after Rebekka withdraws to her own group.

((François may not understand, but presumably his player does...))

Neither Francois nor Brother Brian have seen Supergirl.

"I'm afraid I don't understand", says Francois. "My knowledge of cinema is sadly lacking in this instance."

You should get the picture pretty quickly, but the sequence in question lasts for a bit over a minute. I guess I should have picked the scene at the start of Superman, but Sarah would definitely pick the Supergirl scene instead.

"If they are going to be disoriented, we need to be ready. I want everyone with stakes out; for those with celerity; use it as soon as they cross through the gate. Let's see if we can win this skirmish before it starts."

"It's just a guess that they'll be disoriented!" says Sarah, who makes a stake materialize from thin air as everyone gets in position. Uma gives a sort of "Well, obviously." look upon being instructed to be ready for the arrival of the newcomers.

"I have finished what I needed to do remotely," Morgaine says. "They will arrive shortly, here, and here." Morgaine's orb flashes as she points her staff to where the gates will open, a faint green illuminance outlining exactly where.

Francois' voice snaps out like a gunshot: "Positions! Be ready!"

With that, Francois draws his rapier, and a stake and waits.
