Jumbo Comics #11 - pt. 1
The natives ambushing the dancers are enjoying light cover (bushes don't have enough mass to count as hard cover), but also may be firing from darkness (despite the fact we can see them on the page). In 1st edition there was the distinction of them firing from dim light that was half as good as firing from darkness (-2 to be hit vs. -4), but I dislike that rule and have discarded it for being too subjective. In 2nd ed., it's either dark or it isn't.
I don't stat lionesses any differently from male lions.
Bad guys may feign death so they can sneak away when the Heroes aren't looking. This isn't a skill so much as it's the bad guy taking advantage of the Hero being too busy to check for signs of life.
And here we have an example of the Hero using disguise to sneak into the hideout.
