With their home’s roof on fire, the Soulks rush outside. There are Orcs marauding through the town square. A squadron of Elfs arrive to meet the agressors. Soon a major battle is raging in Town Square, and many skirmishes are taking place along the once peaceful avenues.
The PCs join in as best they can. In some instances, they skirmish with lone Orc warriors. In other cases, they take command of leaderless Elf cadres.
The Tower Bell is ringing out, now controlled by Orc brigands. Each tone of the Bell saps morale of the Elfs and Humans.
