As the party finishes their preparation, weird arcane surges seem to be happening. A gravitational force pulls everyone together, followed by a confused bear appearing. Mira quickly casts Speak with Animals and after giving it some food convinces it to head off to the side of the cavern. Taking stock of the situation the party spreads out to make their assault. Lyra sends the panthers to flank the enemies. Drugan and Mira move off to one side while Oath moves off to the other. Grom and Jasper take the center. Oath casts Hypnotic Pattern on the enemies in the middle while Lyra orders the panthers to attack. Drugan sprints toward the center. Mira moves to engage the gorilla-like demon. Jasper uses Flicker to close the distance and attack one of the cultists. Grom starts climbing one of the five pillars with a crystal floating on top. Alesia shakes Krethe out of his stupor before using her gloves to teleport to a ledge on one of the stone pillars in the chamber. Krethe sees the angry dwarf charging him and casts Harm wracking Drugan with necrotic energy. The panthers devastate and confuse the cultists and armed guards which mount and ineffective defense.
Jasper finishes the cultists near him. Drugan rains heavy blows down on Krethe. Grom smashes one of the five floating crystals. The shock wave knocks him off his feet, but the previous restrained townsfolk are freed. Lyra moves up towards another of the pillars with a crystal. Mira smashes Conviction into the demon she’s fighting, followed by her Spiritual Weapon. From her perch, Alesia rains arrows down on Jasper and Mira. A figure that looks like Mira walks up to Oath, shushes him and points his attention towards the center of the ritual. Oath looks at the figure in confusion. He then attempts to cast another spell but it fizzles as Sinala appears and Counterspells it. Oath bolts toward the Phagestone platform. The Mira figure ripples and another gorilla-like demon is revealed as it chases after Oath.
Jasper moves to help Mira with the demon. Grom moves around the fleeing townsfolk towards the next floating crystal. He casts Misty Step to reach it an deliver a mighty blow shattering it. Mira finishes the demon off only to see several spear men rushing at her and Jasper. Lyra reaches the top of her pillar and smashes the crystal freeing the townsfolk. The shockwave throws her off and she lands hard. A pair of hellhounds rush at Drugan, one catching him with it’s fiery breath. Krethe casts Banish and Drugan disappears from the battlefield. Sinala starts whistling and her arrow flies out and strikes Groms massive figure between the seams of his plate armor. Oath rushes towards one of the remaining two crystals and fires at it with his hand crossbow shattering it. On of the captives is recognized as Corvus. Alesia fires at Lyra and Mira.
The panthers disrupt Krethe and Drugan pops back into the battlefield to deliver the killing stroke to Krethe. Grom moves forward to engage, but Sinala retreats and casts Dimension Door vanishing from sight. Jasper runs towards the pillar and throws Flicker upwards at Alesia. The throw misses, but Jasper is able to grab on to the ledge and pull himself up. Lyra and Mira deal with the spear men. Oath casts Shatter on the final gem and the glowing portal collapses. The shockwave throws everyone back and kills the remaining hellhounds.
