I would reimburse the players for any losses.  Since they were not appraised
of the situation, they couldn't have known what the true danger level was.
As for the immorts, I would warn them about that sort of thing in the future.
In fact, if I were you I would put some sort of mechanism in place to get
quests approved by people you can trust to evaluate them.  This would prevent
this sort of thing from happening in the future.
