Quick run by with some clarifications I was asked for, since apparently edits are still finicky on my wifi: 1. Like the man and the claw before them, these beings too are not detectable through the Force - though you did notice a ferocious eruption of Dark Side energy when the lightning bolts struck. 2. There's still a bit of distance between y'all and the horde, so the route to the ruins has not been cut off - yet. Retreat also seems like a feasible course of action, although there's no guarantee that's any safer of an option.
