Marcus didn't live this long being oblivious. He saw both the ranger and the shade draw thier weapons. Minor ticks in the arms gave it away but that was a trait you develop over centuries. His true sight gift still active he could also see the auras of those in hiding.
Not one to be subtle now days he walked up to the nearest one and stomped on him. Normally this would only cause a lot of pain but given the weight of his armor and the force behind his foot it crushed his chest, there was a gasping cry but no more. This led to all the others jumping out from thier hiding places to attack the travellers.

Shane jumped back from a dagger thrust toward his stomach, matching it with a thrust of his own blade into the bandit's throat, pulling it away as the man fell, gargling out his breath.

The others were occupied with the other attackers as the ranger glanced up, seeing a flickering light through the trees. It appeared almost like lightning, flashing ominously. Shane took a step back, visibly confused. '... is that magic-'

His thoughts were interrupted as a bandit charged forward, screaming a wordless cry- the ranger charged and tackled, knocking the man to the ground with heavy force. Shane quickly stood up, drawing his dirk to take on any other combatants.

Marcus laughed at all the men jumping up from under bushes and out of trees. One leapt towards and he promptly caught him with one hand by the front of his shirt and threw him back into the tree he had just come from, breaking his back.
Marcus drew his sword, the sight of it alone made several hesitate, with a strong leap that seamed almost unnatural for the amount of armor he was wearing, Marcus landed in a small group of the attackers and swung his sword. It did indeed cleave one man in two which slowed it enough for another to move enough to only lose his arm, the momentum lost the sword imbedded itself in the near tree about three quarters the way through. The other two seeing an opportunity charged him, he turned and back-handed one away... he didn't get up. To the last, he meerly looked at him and he dropped to the ground writhing and struggling as though he were pinned.
Any who noticed would've seen a flash in Marcus's eyes, it was his only form of magic really, altering the weight of the man's vest to such a weight that he couldn't move it.  He considered just leaving him there, but turning to pull his sword from the tree he had another idea.
Wrenching the sword free he stepped around the tree and pushed it towards the man on the ground... there was a scream just before the crash of the tree then nothing.

Shane grimaced as he let go of what appeared to be the final man, the now lifeless body falling to the brown path of the forest floor. Cleaning off his dirk before sheathing it, the ranger stared around at the trees, trying to find evidence of others who had seen the sudden battle.

"If you mean us no harm, come out so we can see you," Shane said, his tone one of someone having a calm conversation. "Otherwise... you've seen what we are capable of." The calm of his voice was evident, but like a cloth of silk draped over a sharpened dagger- lethal, in any case.
