I am having a heck of a time beating them. Been a longtime since I made it this far through SoA. Anyhow, my party: PC: R/C (FoA, DoE) Minsc (Axes+3 forget names or Elven Bow Arrows +2) Imoen Aerie Kelsey (LVL 6 Spells: True Sight, Chain Lightning. LVL 7 Mirror Image) They are casting Insta Death spells and NPCs start dying. I tried: Move everybody out of room. Have summoned creature walk across to activate. Kelsey cast Web, fire of magic missles hoping to disrupt, fire with arrows for fast quick hits, have PC attack when they walk to door. This has me only having to deal with the bottom, two. I managed to get one down to badly injured. Then the insta death and 3 NPCs gone, one held, and my PC fighting for himself.
