Drop into the kings banquet hall to discover the advisor summoning a portal (or maybe summoning a creature), and ice-flecked rats swarming over everything. Rat swarms first, then dire rats. Towards the end, as you are getting swarmed under and Ulrick Klezstar begins to help with the ritual, the Avatar of Gnilash breaks down the door, knocks out The Barbarian, and is about to hurt you all. Medrash’s awesome power ripples out, stunning the avatar, as the portal opens. Lady Madeline Lenore grabs her bodyguard after everyone fails to pick him up, and everyone escapes through the portal as the castle begins to come crashing down.
