After fighting concluded in the city, Refugees and defeated League forces are retreating along a number of rural roads. many people are running away with nothing but the clothes on their backs.

Local: I tell you hwhat mom, I don't know what's going on in the city but none of these folks better try to take any of our stuff

Refugees try to board the truck
Refugee: Come on man give me a ride!
Refugee 2: You don't need all this stuff! help us out give us a lift!

People are so concerned with getting on the truck, that they walk into oncoming traffic almost getting run over

Image20200926_195544 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
People start to panic, and attempt to break into the truck

Image20200926_195803 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Another motorist ends up slamming into the back of the truck
Driver: BLYAT!
Image20200926_195825 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The driver of the truck freaks out and takes off, leaving people rolling around in the street falling off the truck

Image20200926_200237 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Escapees must travel through a small pass up ahead

Image20200926_200308 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Legion scouts are already here!

Image20200926_200325 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
A poor fellow driving a yellow car gets to see a Legion soldier on the horizon just before he blows him away with a rocket

Image20200926_200409 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The little car gets obliterated and the wreck blocks the bottleneck

Image20200926_200430 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Cars get blocked and they pile up

Image20200926_200457 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
and the big cargo truck ends up crashing right into the hill

Image20200926_200851 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
SLB units part of the convoy rush forward

Image20200926_200933 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The assailants flee, having successfully slowed the convoy

Image20200926_201125 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The League troops block the incoming refugees from moving into the danger area. Traffic tries to cut through the fields and drive around
Refugee: Why have we stopped!? they're gonna catch us and kill us let me through!
SLB Militia: Sir! We can't go through the pass! it's not safe we gotta find another way!
Image20200926_201147 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
As the cars cut through the field, the local comes running off the porch waving his arms and making a commotion
Local: Wait! don't go that way! there's a field!!!!
Image20200926_201203 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The peacekeeper realizes too late that he's taken a wrong turn and crashes right into a fence that cordons off an Ichor field

Image20200926_201353 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
He scrambles to get out of the vehicle

Image20200926_201413 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
It's too late, he disintegrates from mere proximity to the Crystals

Image20200926_201759 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The torrent of refugees turns into an angry mob, panicked over being boxed in with nowhere to go
Image20200926_201803 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
SLB Militia: People! the way forward is no good, and that field will kill you in seconds! We just have to wait for a recovery vehicle to move this wreckage out of the way and we can continue on!
Image20200926_201824 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Scared Refugee: But they'll catch up to us before that happens! they're gonna get us!
Image20200926_201855 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Truck Driver: Frig that! I've got 4 wheel drive, I'll find another way around through the woods!
Image20200926_202007 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Neckbeard: There's gotta be another way we can get through the woods on foot! come on!
Image20200926_202133 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
People jump onto the truck as it takes off

Image20200926_202154 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
They take off into the distance never to be seen again

Image20200926_202337 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Others take their chances and try to head through the woods and avoid the Ichor Fields

Image20200926_202344 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Some stay behind and wait for the wreckers to come, others continue arguing with the security

Image20200926_202434 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
In the commotion, a fight breaks out in the crowd, and people start shooting at each other

Image20200926_202650 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
An angry man runs through and shoots at the militia, people scatter
