Three temples down...assassinating we will go
My group has taken the earth, water and air temples as well as the northern bridge complex. Vranthis is still alive, but barely. D'Gran and company have not been attacked yet.

Here's what I plan to do...comments please!

The PCs spent a lot of time away after taking out their second temple. I had Hedrack assign an assassin (Chat) to dissuade them. He trailed them to Dolvis (Verbobonc), and kept an eye on them there. He assassinated one of their friends and ditched the body but retained the scalp, which he had made into a wig. They do not yet know any of this. He also commissioned an artist to make portraits of those characters that Chat knew. Chat then returned to the crater with the portraits and wig ahead of the PCs, giving the portraits to Hedrack.

In the interim Hedrack assigned Varachan to keep an eye on the PCs with the crystal ball. When the PCs returned, Chat was stationed at the reinforced main gate, but the group defied their old patterns and assaulted the south entrance, smashing the air temple. The session ended with them doing some looting in the air temple, and smashing the artifacts atop the altar.

Here's my reaction:
Varachan delays notifying Hedrack until after the PCs' victory is assured.
Hedrack immediately sends an invisible stalker to notify Chat and then D'Gran. The stalker is to follow Chat and observe, reporting back to Hedrack.
Chat goes invisible and makes time southeast until he runs into the PCs. D'Gran makes ready, but does not move his forces outside of his area.
Chat's will attempt to assassinate the party sorcerer, though he'd settle for the cleric or rogue if he had too. He'll try to do this when the target is at least 30' from one of the tough fighters. Once the attempt is made, he'll play hide and seek with his wand of invisibility, and if another opportunity presents itself take out another character, otherwise observe and report back. He will not throw his life away.

Some notes:

My group includes 6 characters:
mnk7/clr1 - damage absorber
rgr2/bbn1/rog5 - damage dealer
clr8 - traditional
sor7 - blaster-type
clr7 - archer
rgr3/ftr4/dwd1 - tank

The group has the earth and water keys, and now the air keys. They are leery of proceeding to the OF, and are likely to proceed to the fire temple. I'm going to assume Tessimon has been notified of their presence by the IS, unless they somehow find and kill it.

Sounds like a good plan.

Remember the rules for spotting invisible opponents. The Monk probably has a high Spot and a half decent chance of seeing invisible.
