Za Khazi Run--Altar beneath Morog in Blades of Avernum

I'm wondering if there is anything you can do to the altar in the deep caverns Morog sends you to. I did a few searches, but couldn't see anything related to that altar. I've cast ritual of sanctification 4 times, but still haven't been able to do anything.

1--Khoth in ZKR. It was pretty tough. I eventually summoned a bunch of beasts with Major Call, then used a rod of Arcana while I was still friendly. Then I shot Koth from a distance, and my summoned beasts protected me from his 200 point hits. He dropped the eye of Khoth and Khoth's amulet, two of the coolest artifacts in the game.

2--Demon Gate battle in Backwater Calls: It took me quite some time to actually survive the first round of their attacks. After that, it was pretty easy, as I got my spellcaster hasted and cast Arcane Shield on everyone. Those Hellish Troopers that attack six times each, every round, are tough!

3--Morog, in ZKR. She kept summoning things, I simulacumed her, and my simulacrum kept summoning things, and there was a huge battle between our summoned beasts, until my archers took her out.

4--Selucia in DWTD: I killed Vakhos, that wasn't too bad, then I killed the dude who ruled Selucia. That was pretty epic, as the Elite Soldiers kept on coming....not to mention the escape from the city. Then, when i wanted to leave the scenario, I had to fight my way through that small fort. Pretty fun!

5--Demon Statue in Canopy: The statue, coupled with the invisible bugbears, was quite a challenge. I eventually had to use Arcane Summon and a bunch of Energy Elixers to beat the statue. That dude hit pretty hard!

6--Battling the Empire in A Small Rebellion: They had a bunch of guys who hit really hard...great fun!

7--Worm pit in ZKR--It seems like my leading adventurer always got killed by those worms, so I had to keep restoring it. I eventually simulacumed one of them, then fought them, with my monster, and it was a lot easier.

8--Plate Queen: That was cool...she kept spitting out all these little plate bugs

9--Alien Beasts: Those things were WAY tough for my beginner party to defeat, especially on the trek to the final tower.

10--In A Perfect Forest, fighting that monster, trying to position mirrors, constantly healing my party....a tough battle!

Should he be sitting on the throne during his dialogue? Maybe I just need to download an updated version from the BOA Center. I'll try that and post again....

Oh, by the way, this scenario is by FAR the best submitted scenario I've played for Blades of Avernum. In all of the other ones I felt EXTREMELY limited to what I could do, mainly because if you strayed from the author's path even a little, your whole party was killed, etc., etc. Smoo, yours has NONE of that feeling. I could do the quests when i wanted how I wanted, each dungeon felt different, there weren't a lot of those EXTREMELY annoying "cutscenes" that seem to be so popular among scenario authors, and the story was GREAT, implementing things from the original Exile/Avernum storylines, as well as building a lot of your own lore/story. I LOVED IT, and anxiously await the your next gem!!!

Yeah, I looted his treasure room, but he isn't anywhere. I've never talked to the rebels, I entered through the main gate (killing two haakai and a whole bunch of other demons, wouldn't have been able to do it without "Arcane Shield"), but there is no haakai. I'll restore a savegame I made before entering the throne room and try it again. Is he supposed to just be there, or do I have to look for him somewhere?

After I enter the final Haakai's throne room, he monologues a bit then gets hit by the beam from my Demon Necklace charm, then I fight two demons and four demon stalker/centurion things, but the barriers are still in front of the portal, and the final Haakai is nowhere to be found. Am I missing something?
