In a forest, of the land that Ulrich owned, Ulrich "patrolled the dark forest in quest of a human enemy" He found who he was looking for, Georg his life long enemy trespassing on his land. This is ulrich call because he has to deal with gerog.
Lets be friends.
As they are standing across from each other"A fierce shriek of the storm had been answered by a splitting crash over their heads" They get trapped under a piece of tree caused by a lighting strike.
As their are trapped under the tree the men continue to argue about whose men will arrive faster. This becomes a challenge to see whose men will arrive first and who gets helped up first.
Self Knowledge/The Theme
Ulrich asked Georg to be freinds and end their everlasting feud over the land.
Sadly there friendship was cut too soon because a pair of wolves heard them calling for help.
The theme about the interlopers is how hatred leads to tragedy and violence. If they could have settled this earlier they could've been best friends.
