A8 (Mammy's Room)

It's impossible to avoid being disgusted by this encounter. A morbidly obese, man-eating, blood-painting, in-breeding necromancer is the star of the show. Mammy's necromantic powers are strongly represented in her incarnation here, and she has her own complement of three uniquely capable undead warriors to harass intruders. I suggest the following encounter for a party of five adventurers (plus Shalelu):

Total: 2,650 xp (Level 9 Encounter)

Mammy keeps her undead close, luring the party in to dominate them. If she gets the chance, she favors controlling strikers, or leaders with at-will healing powers (Paladins are especially tempting) so that she can regain lost hit points during the fight. While Mammy's speed puts her at a significant disadvantage when she needs to be somewhere more than one square away, her high attack bonuses and excellent defenses let her take the run action (to horrifying effect) without worrying too much about impacting her performance.
