    Doral takes a few more steps back, then casts a spell directed at the man on the ceiling. "Sir, I've seen some nasty looking chaps in my time, but you might have won the ugly trophy."

    Spoiler:

    Doral casts dispel magic at the man hanging on the ceiling and the crystal, if the crystal is in the radius.

    Glaive points upwards at the crystal and shouts out the dark words once more. The crystal reverbarates violently under the assault. As Doral's ghostly legion begins to fade away, the remaining cultist races forward and swings his scythe at Doral. His blade barely misses taking off his nose. Up above, the skull-faced man draws another scroll from beneath his robe, reads it, and touches the crystal.

    Whisper backs up and then casts another manyjaws spell at the man on the ground. He dodges swiftly, but a few of the jaws manage to bite and tear. Doral points a finger skyward and channels chaotic magical energies designed to disrupt organized flow. Their is a cascade of colors and energies as magical effects interact violently. A moment after the figure touches the crystal a second time, he suddenly peals free from the ceiling and tumbles towards the floor of the cavern. Midian follows the attack up with another blast of electricity. The crystal, still vibrating from the effects of Glaive's spell, cracks like a pane of glass. Nearly 1/3rd of the crystal suddenly shears free and falls. It impacts on top of the prone man beneath it and shardes fly through the air like sharpnel.
    Kraken comes charging back towards the cultist assaulting Doral. The flying shards open cuts on his face and forearms and distracts him at the critical moment when he swings.

    The chamber suddenly rumbles. Chunks of stone break free from the ceiling and drop down to clatter on the floor. A sick green light radiates outward from the crystal and rapidly spreads throughout the ceiling and down the tunnels before and behind you. Rumblings farther away indicates activity elsewhere as well! The green light continues to spread down the walls, highlighting the ribs and forming into.. ghostly arteries and veins. Ectoplasm drips from the ceiling a few feet and spreads outwards in the beginnings of what might be internal organs!

    Kraken grins maniacally at the cultist before him, his smile spilts his bearded face right back to reveal a missing premolar. With unnatural speed he slashes his falchion through the air more times than seems humanly possible, and with barely a register for his foe takes a step forwards towards the ugly wulgaru creature.

    OOC

    Since Kraken seems to be adjacent to the cultist, two attacks thanks to haste. +1 attack, +1 attack for haste (accidentally added +1 damage for bless, so values don't match IC rolls! Correct values listed below; 8 and 10.

    Attack 1 1d20+10=21
    Damage 1 2d4+4=8
    Attack 2 1d20+10=21
    Damage 2 2d4+4=10

    I'll leave it to you to adjudicate if the cultist also takes damage from the heat metal spell.

    Kraken then takes a 5 ft. step forwards to either the left or right of the cultist, whichever takes him closer to the ugly thing.

    "We have to finish off the crystal!" Whisper shouts. "We can't let this...thing...finish forming!"

    With a wave of her hand she redirects the swirling motes of force from the cultist to the crystal overhead! She then scrambles to join the others, ready to flee if all else fails.

    (Can't do invis castle from here, but 6d6 damage for this turn and next to the crystal)

    Midian blanches at the ghostly formations, but retains focus enough to bolt to his ape's side, using his wand to stabilize him, but not generating enough healing magic to wake the beast.

    "I brought Garuk into this. I have to get him out," Midian says, preparing to use the wand again.

    Yikes!

    Move and cure:

    CLW wand. (1d8+1=3)

    Crap roll, but at least it stabalizes him. If only he were a few levels higher, he could just wildshape into something big enough to carry Garuk.

    "Midian! If you can get that damnable biped on his feet, I might be able to speed us up once more and get us out of here!" Doral wasn't happy about how the situation was unfolding. There was a cultist doing his darndest to place a pointy instrument deep into Doral's right cheek, there was another cultist around, the melting ceiling could collapse upon him at any moment drowning him in ectoplasmic goo, and if he decided to cut out like his instincts were telling him too, it was very likely that the cultists could restart their magical program and hunt the beguiler down. Oh yes... and that same source of the cultists power was still hanging to its existence. And he hadn't seen any pay to justify this kind of activity. Oh well... when in doubt, you could never go wrong by trying to impress the pretty ladies...

    Taking Whisper's advice, he raised his wand towards the remnants of the shard, mentally crossed his fingers, and fired.

    OOC
    Spoiler:

    I'm hoping Doral gets lucky and evades getting cut by the cultist in his face one more time. Hopefully Kraken finishes him off. Meanwhile, Doral is shooting forth another blast from his wand of magic missiles and taking a 5-foot step back when done.

    Seeing the cultist close on Doral, Glaive focuses his energies on him instead. He invokes a blast of energy that strikes him in the chest. The recovered crystal shard in Glaive's hand pulses as the energy channels through it and his energy seems to cling to the cultist for a moment, doing additional damage. The cultist snarls out an oath in an infernal tongue. He pulls his unholy symbol from around his neck, an ugly mess of small bones wrapped with tendons, and shouts words of a spell. He strikes outward with his hand and presses the symbol to Doral's face. A painfully cold feeling erupts from the point of contact and Doral's face contorts in obvious agony. Rising from the shard fragments, the skull faced man pulls bloody crystal fragments from his chest and arms. He calls out, "You're too late! Already the power is spreading to the far flung nodes! The great beast rises! Kill me and it will be unchained and my will is done regardless! Your destruction is at hand!" He launches himself forward at Kraken in a heedless charge. His mouth opens wide revealing several rows of jagged canine fangs. His teeth sink into Kraken's arm, tearing free a bloody hunk.
    Whisper focuses her spell on the crystal over head, sending the whirling jaws upward to tear at the crystal. You can hear their fangs scratching over the smooth surface and every now and then one catches hold and breaks off a fractured crystal piece. Following Whisper's example, Doral fires his wand upwards, the impact of the missiles bringing another shower of shards. Midian, his weather control spell exhausted, rushes to Garuk's side. The spreading pool of blood around his is frighteningly large. It seems like an impossible amount, even for the gorilla's massive body. He kneels beside him and touches his wand to the ape's chest. To his great relief, some of the wounds begin to knit and the apes shallow breathing strengthens.
    Kraken ignores the painful bite and focuses on killing the wounded cultist first. One thing at a time. His blade chops the man once and he begins to drop, the second blow finishes what the first one started, cleaving the man's head from his body. He then turns and stares eye-to-empty-socket with the creature before him.

    The vast chamber shakes again and you have the distinct impression that the massive body trapped in the stone just tried to move. You can hear frightened cries echoing up from the tunnel behind you where you entered. The glowing green energy has begun coursing down the tunnels in either direction. They seem to be following the vertebrae of the body.

    Glaive
    Spoiler:

    As the crystal begins to break down even further you get the sense of something of immense power stirring within. Images dance for an instant before your eyes. Endless demon armies. Cities whose structures are built from the bodies of the dead and living. Carnage and chaos that can only come from the great abyss. Battles with great dragons from a millenia ago.
    You know now what is trapped in that crystal. One of the most powerful demons ever to walk the earth. The image of a burning silhouette, wings sprouting from its shoulders, a fiery blade in one hand and a whip in the other.
    If freed and it takes on a host, the creature would become an unstoppable force. Knowledge and foul intellect from time immemorial and the power gained by an eternity of existance.

    Midian Rightson, human druid

    Midian's relief at pulling Garuk back from the brink takes all of his attention. As if the chaos around him doesn't exist, he touches the wand to the ape again, its warm glow knitting together the most fatal damage. The ape grunts back to consciosness, though it's clearly still in a lot of pain.

    OOC
    Question: how high up is the ceiling / crystal? I just realized Midian can summon a thoqqua, which has a burrow speed so it could attack the crystal from inside the ceiling. If the ceiling is too high, though, it's probably too late in the game to bother (if it's not too late altogether. ). If it's close enough, he'll start the summon with his move action for this round, so he'll finish it with his standard action next round.

    CLW wand. (1d8+1=8)

    If Garuk gets an action this turn, I'll just have him stand. He's not going to be doing any more fighting if Midian can help it.

    Kraken shakes a droplet of blood from his brow and regards the canine skull with a maniacal gleam in his eyes.

    "Reckon you didn't want to do that, mate," he says, unleashing a dazzlingly fast barrage of blows upon the creature. Lightning seems to crackle in his shaggy beard for a moment.

    Using an action point to gain an extra attack, giving three with the haste effect.
