Casting Mental Ward (for +2) and Personal Ward (for +2d6 HP) on the afternoon before we go. She wants to warn James to make sure any priority locations or individuals are protected in case anyone uses this situation as a distraction for an attack.

The days pass uneventfully, and it is time.  James has the human population locked up tight indoors, with his men along the routes the ghouls will be leaving by.  Mostly to protect the peace, but just as likely to gun them down if things pop off.

When you arrive there are several Haxan (including Isabella), the leader of the ghouls, and a massive pack.  Perception rolls plz.

You see hundreds of ghouls (maybe more than hundreds), the Haxan you aren't sure.  There's a few dozen women, some of which look normal, some of which manifestly do NOT.  For the first hour all is well.  When the crowd begins to thin you notice a glint of light reflecting off something metal in an alleyway.

Where are we meeting? Still in town, or on the outskirts?

When you say the crowd begins to thin, do you mean the townsfolk watching on, or the ghouls as they leave?

How far is this reflection from Elizabeth? Is she standing near the ally? Is there anyone else around near her?

The square you've been meeting in.

The ghouls are beginning to thin out.

The alley is across the way from you, you think the person (if that's what it is), is about 60 feet or more away.

There are several men surrounding you, and several of the Haxan between you and the alley.

Elizabeth grabs two of the nearby guards:

"Can you come with me, please? I want to see something..."

She cautiously approaches the alley.

A shot rings out from the alley, narrowly missing your group.  Bedlam ensues as the Ghouls make a run for it.

Can Elizabeth see anything clearly enough to take a shot?

The alley is pitch black.  All of a sudden.

"Take cover!"

Elizabeth gets behind something solid enough to stop shots from the alley. She looks around to see if she can gauge the reactions of any of the leaders of the various factions to see if they might be behind it.

If there are, they're hiding it well as panic and confusion is writ large n the faces of all and sundry.  The Haxan scurry for cover, and begin chanting.  Your side takes cover and opens fire  on the alleyway (at least the ones not with you do).

How long would it take to get to the other side of the buildings to see if they're sneaking out the other side?

Long enough that if they decide to do so they'd be gone before you got there.  Unless you can shapeshift into something fast.

...Unless you can shapeshift into something fast.

OOC: I was already looking into Animal Form, but it takes a minute.

To the guards with her: "Lets see if we can cut them off!"

Elizabeth looks for a door on either of the adjacent buildings to try and cut through more directly to the back. Or even a window.
