    They only get to shout "en garde!" and draw their swords if they beat your join battle roll. Even then you have still surprised them and get bonuses for it. They just got to react faster than you anticipated. Which is exactly what a good join battle roll(default of wits+awareness) should be able to result in.

    The unfortunate thing about this is people creating your stealth/backstabbing character don't necessarily realise the importance of wits and awareness for their join battle roll until they get into combat. You could fluff this as they had to anticipate the opportune...
