Well, the game went off alright.  The short version is that they managed to short-circuit the big combat encounter through some useful cleverness, which required me to go on a cleverness offensive of my own to figure out what needed to happen next.  Fortunately, my improvisational GMing skills are still up to snuff, so I was able to advance the plot while staying about one piece of information ahead of the players.  We broke after about four hours, which is generally my limit for these things nowadays, and everyone said they had a good time.  We play again in two weeks.
