Before Combat Once he knows the PCs are in the crypts, Kazaven casts extended false life and tongues on himself. He then calls a devourer to guard him using his staff of hungry shadows.
During Combat Kazaven opens battles by casting finger of death at a spellcaster and quickened displacement on himself. He then casts wall of force to seal himself off from the PCs, giving him time to cast greater invisibility, quickened cat’s grace, fly, mirror image, and spectral hand. During this time, he lets the conjured devourer keep the PCs busy. If the PCs haven’t breached his wall by the time he’s done casting preparatory spells, he dimension doors back into their midst and begins hitting them with spells. If he needs more minions, Kazaven casts stone shape on a nearby wall to release several wraiths, hoping they provide additional distractions.
Morale Kazaven values his own immortal existence too much to stick around in a fight he’s losing. If reduced to less than 30 hit points, he uses mislead to escape by casting gaseous form and retreating to area F10, where he gathers his phylactery before triggering the trap in the room young templatehis damage. Given time, he recovers his spells and then seeks revenge on the PCs. If confronted there, Kazaven has little choice but to fight until destroyed, but he makes sure to trigger the trap in the room before a fight begins.
