So yeah, this battle, although was very fun to play, just wasn't that fun to write about.
Perhaps it was the fact that the players did so well... nobody really did anything noobish at all, honestly. They killed things effectively, they strategized well, understood puzzles and ruses, and, in general, performed admirably.
Anyhoo - eventually, the party decided to splatter Raelin's blood on the pentagram alter in the center of the room, which, caused it to lower, then open in an aperture. The party all jumped down the hole of indeterminant depth, and, the adventure continued.
