80 10% of any remaining ordinary kuo-toa develop insanity. They kill off a further 10% of any remaining ordinary kuo-toa and then become incapable of further combat, lying comatose and helpless. There is a 5% chance for any major kuo-toa (other than the Priest-King or Dukes) that they, too, become insane and non¬combatant.
90 Lamashtu shows great disfavor. She withdraws all of her magic from the city plunging it into Chaos, any charmed creatures are freed. There is 50% chance that any remaining Kuo-toan’s go insane and any remaining Mind Flayers flee the city.

Even if the all the mandatory goals are not met the PC’s can still make their way to the Sunless Sea. Traveling back through the City of Glass may will cause encounters as they rebuild and warning will be sent to the Sovereignty D6 days after the PC’s make it through the city.
