The ambush command permits you to set up an ambush in a room. While in the ambush state, you can perform any ranged command using the 'from ambush' state, and also have access to the 'ambush <target>' syntax which puts you in melee combat with a head start of a few extra free attacks. Ambushing is skill checked, and targets get an opportunity to notice your attempts and perhaps thwart them.
