You reckon 'temporarily hiding' - there's no signs of anyone living there.
You fade out of sight and sneak further in, coming across five ragged and dirty humans, hiding on a set of partially buried stairs leading down. The lower portion of the staircase has been shored up with timbers and rocks. Trailing down the stairwell hangs a worn, knotted rope neatly tied around a nearby chunk of broken column.
One of them whispers "Do you think he's gone yet?" but is Shssshed by the others.
Silena briefly looks them over for weapons and tries to determine form their clothing if they are literately dressed in rags of if they are simply clothing that has been worn to a ragged appearance? Are they native humans of foreigner humans?
Then she moves to a spot out of their immediate weapon/s reach... and waits for the invisibility to fade allowing herself to appear near them as a large Katapeshi Leopard...
...before changing back before them to her helf-elven half naked form.
"Do not be alarmed... I mean you no harm... I have merely dismissed my spells to talk to you. I am Silena Dulare... who are you and who do you serve?"
She keeps one hand touching her Folding Armor Amulet... but in the other since the 'real' <TEMPEST> is in another dimension 'her Handy Haversack' and thus more than 30'ft away.. she calls upon her Moldspeaker abilities and suddenly <TEMPEST> with its frosty scimitar blade is in her hand... as a show of power and magic...!
"But mind you... I am not prey to be trifled with!"
As soon as the leopard appears there is an awful lot of screaming!
"We're going to die! It'll eat us!" and similar comments.
Transforming into a scantily-clad half-elf doesn't stop the screaming although at least they don't think they're going to be eaten now.
