In my session tonight, the sorcerer attempted a simple Dancing Lights from the fortress wall to get a better look at the grassy area. Of course, this triggered the green faerie fire and attracted the attention of: the guards, the guests, and Kasbeel.
So something occurred to me... this is exactly the type of distraction Necerion was waiting for!
Why wait for the arbitrarily-timed procession ceremony? This added a sense of urgency for the PCs, and some drama! The sorcerer is in trouble, and the other PCs see their enemy get a head start!
The sorcerer got off with the warning and the PCs tried to follow Necerion, but Whark confronted them. One character distracted Kasbeel while the others told Whark what happened, and about Kasbeel's role. Whark sent Kasbeel away so she could "deal with her later" and asked the PCs to stop Necerion.
I hadn't really thought of the faerie fire effect as a good time for Necerion to sneak away, but it made sense when I thought about it - one of the partygoers instantly glowing green and attracting the devil's attention... sounds pretty distracting to me!
