Black Cyst
How do you get out? Teleport? Isn't it its own plane? So planeshift?
Seems a little counter-inuitive that the altar to Tharizdun would rip apart the Orb of Silvery Death. Any reasoning for that out there?

Re: Black Cyst
Getting out is easy ... if you have a Black Thurible and a ball of Incense of Dreaming. You just twirl the Black Thurible and everyone is teleported out of the room.

The altar mindlessly destroys anything left on the altar, but you'll take notice that there is no reward if the Orb is destroyed. The Orb was a gift from Tharizdun. What he giveth, he can take away - if your stupid enough to throw it away. Whose to say that if you re-enter the Black Cyst after destroying the first Silver Orb that another Orb is not created?

I'd not do that, as it seems too cheesy. I just assume that those who are supposed to use the altar know what to do. The only real risk of the Orb being destroyed by the altar is when someone who doesn't know what they are doing uses it.

So, really its not too counter-intuitive. Those who should have the Orb know how to use it properly at the altar and get a limited wish. Those who should not have the Orb use it improperly and loose the Orb.

Black Thurible
If I remember correctly, there isn't any Black Thurible to be found by the party before they reach the Black Cyst. All of them seem to be in the Inner Fane or the Recovered Temple. Is the party meant to hold off doing the Cyst until after doing the Inner Fane, or am I just forgetting a thurible that can be found sooner? Could the party get stuck inside the Black Cyst if they never acquired one?

I'll just adjust things if that happens, but I was curious how it has worked for other people. Thanks.
