Sparrow's dwarf illusion rolls its eyes. It steps out in the middle of the road, in front of the riders, and holds out a hand in the classic 'stop' pose.

A massively amplified voice can be heard throughout the column:

"HALT!"

The column, with much confusion, stops.

The lead riders do not.

The lead riders are riders; that is to say, they're on horses. Sparrow alters his invisibility spell slightly to allow the horses to see him, and asks them "Would you mind stopping for a moment? These people -" he points at Anthony and Ruan - "want to talk to your riders."

The dwarf illusion remains steadfastly in the middle of the road, hand upraised. It'll remain there even if one of the horses charges through it, though that would probably indicate that it's not exactly what it appears.

"We're ambassadors of Sael! We seek the presence of the king's men."

The riders pull up short, quite close to the illusory dwarf. "An elf, a dwarf, and a human on a mission from Sael?" one says.

"I think I've heard this joke before," says the other thoughtfully.

Yeah, the punch line is I render you all infertile the hard way.
"Well, I'm quite tired of playing horsey." Anthony jumps down from his horse. "Shall we begin?"

Sparrow stands aside to let Anthony do the talking. For the moment, at least.

So does his dwarf illusion.

"I'd be interested in hearing that joke..." Ruan dismounts as well, as his horse lets out of a whuff of relief.

The dwarf illusion adopts the facial expression of an ambassador lieutenant's assistant who's not wonderfully experienced and is really, really trying not to look nervous (without much success).

One of the advantages of illusion is that one can be very explicit with regard to expression.

"What's all this? What's this delay?" A pale, big-nosed man in velvet garments spurs his horse through the crowd of riders. He is accompanied by another rider draped in a moss green cloak, face hidden, as well as four personal bodyguards and three mages. He pulls up to a stop in front of the party. "Who are you?"

"Ambassador Lieutenant Aldo Raine, apparently," says one of the lead riders.

"Ambassador! Hmph! Whatever your mission is, sirs, it can't be as important as ours. Please step aside and let us have the road."

"And what, per chance, is yours?"

"We're on a mission to Sael," one of the lead riders begins.

Big-Nose cuts him off with an angry gesture. "Don't tell him that! We're traveling under the king's banner. We don't have to tell anybody anything." He doesn't actually stick his tongue out and say neener-neener, but his expression is so petulant that he might as well have.

"Well, you see, we come from Sael. And for right now, I'm kind of top dog. So business with Sael is business with me." Anthony picks the dialog between the snide and friendly options.

While the dwarf illusion remains still, Sparrow himself is under Big-Noses' horse, unbuckling his saddle. It won't be long until he falls off his long-suffering horse.

Meanwhile, Ruan's taking a good look at the men and their surroundings. Just in case something's out of the ordinary... random bandits in the trees, a dragon plummeting from the sky, a horse's saddle coming loose all by it's own...

Well. Maybe not the last.
