She asks what they looked like, what they were wearing, and what all they did. Were they speaking?

"They din't say nuthin'.  Weren't wearin' nuthin'.  They just came out of the woods and tore the men apart, and left when a few of the wives got off gunshots.  They don't look like nuthin' ah've ever seen.  One of 'em took a musket ball in the shoulder."

Are the tracks washed away at this point where we won't be able to follow them?

most likely yes, but if they come out after the rain the mud will make them easy to follow

"I think we should get some rest near these people, wait for daylight, and see if we can find them. Someone should keep watch throughout the night. I feel like I'm being watched."

Lionel had been quiet this whole time.  Something was bothering him.  Besides the fact that Elizabeth turned into a rat.  More than the general panic of things cryptological.  The problem was that he heard this before.  Not this exact thing, of course not, but the mad talk of magic and the supernatural.  First his crazy old uncle, and then Barnes.  He would have to put things to the side.  There's been a murder it seems.  Spoiled food, bodies, gunpowder.  These things, he pondered if they were related directly with the suspect.

He may not believe in Elizabeth's tricks, but there was something to be said to psychological warfare.  Plus, that slime was evidence.  They needed it.  The party turned back for the moment to regroup back home, only to find... more death.

"Devil's balls, we leave for a few hours and there's already a mass murder.  Alright, let's see them."

It was a real mess.  Knife wounds likely, this was definately a weapon.  While Elizabeth went off to find the drunken witness, Lionel chose to stay here and keep an eye on the bodies and the surroundings.  He'll stay up to watch during the night too.  After all, if these psychotic fools were still about it would be best if someone was waiting for them with a big stick, so to speak.

Difficult to say, the Inn you're staying at is on the outskirts of town (you came back to interview the old guy remember?).  It definitely isn't near though.  But it has people out on the street, guns drawn.

"Perhaps now is a good time for me to try banishing that gigantic... thing. I don't know if it will work, and it will take a little over an hour for me to do the ritual. Are you both fine with that? I'll need you two to guard me, because I cannot be interrupted once I stop."
