"I'd recommend a good vault and additional reinforcement DIRECTLY on your city."

Yes indeed: the plan for the next period of activity is to have both surrounding armies, with diplo reinforcement, and strong inside help, with a large diplo contingent, and a vault.

The previous episodes didn't show military defeats, rather a lack of diplo intelligence?

Some gear against magical/undead/monstrous should be considered too?

Yes, at one point you are told not to move the tentacles.  But the refusal of the crone to visit a city is a sign that the city had previously failed.  My recommendation was at an effort to reset the quest.

I think the messages about NOT moving tentacles should be taken as NEITHER ADDING NOR SUBTRACTING tentacles from your inventory.  Only the fools continue to feed the spread of the corruption.

I'd recommend a good vault and additional reinforcement DIRECTLY on your city.  But nothing with Audrey in imminent.  A long way to go before she is active.

I get this behavior too... in some cities.  But in recently captured cities I am able to generate both the correct message from the fortune teller AND to get the crone to show up when expected.  I might try shipping out all tentacles to see if my "reputation" resets with fortune teller and whether that will change the crone's desire to visit my forbidden cities.

Had you got a positive response in another city? It seems the old crone visits one city/player?

Have to hit the fortune teller first.  She will tell you when and where to hit Duraz Karag.  Do this immediately following the visit of the old crone.

Good luck!

My thoughts at this point:

(1) If a city has failed the quest then it can never complete it successfully.  Are players attempting the quest for the first time, that is having 5 tentacles of each race prior to Audrey's awakening, are these players receiving the usual messages that have been already documented?

(2) Perhaps more than 5 of each race is needed to improve chance of success?  The message does say "at least" five of each race.
