A Change of Plans
D’Wat realizes that Leon is a powerful archmage and asks him if he can come with them to look at the top of the Casino. Leon agrees and they proceed to a confrontation with the Adiminium. with Ol' Staffer's help, they release the six arch-mages on top of the Casino and defeat the Adiminium.
Grateful for their release, the archmages reveal that the Bayanisun Casino is actually a dimension-hopping vehicle and the Adiminium was originally their AI servant. It took over the Casino, trapped them and used them as batteries for the constructs. They prepare to depart, but they will only take the top floor with them. They sign over the rest of the building to PPAC, who are now the proud owners of a Casino missing its roof!
The next Shatter, the realm of Theros manifests in the Pit and a group of gold-seeking fiends enter the Casino. They drive them off, but the fight causes considerable damage to the Casino that the new owners are now responsible for fixing with their own money!
