The diverse army Our Heroes had gathered crossed the Luin River and after a day of marching, made camp, just one day's march away from Redmorn. That night, scouts discovered an armed band approaching, the army. The Party investigated, and found that the force was actually led by Lord Almeric, who had come to join their host. Almeric was invited into the camp and a council was held to determine the objectives of the army, dubbed Fan Dwithas by Sondolla of Rhirideth. It was decided that the army would distract Thanatis' forces while the Party scaled the tower to face the evil wizard. To make use of the superior vision of the orcs and elves within the army, it was also determined that the attack would begin at dusk.
As the sun rose and eventually began to fall, the army was under attack from both the front and rear. Our Heroes rushed back towards the rearguard, finding spectral knights laying waste to the Warriors of Berathik. As they defeated the Helmed Horrors, one escaped with the unconscious body of Knight-Captain Akalda.
Later that day, the attack began. The bulk of the army approached the village of Redmorn, while Orcs, Elves, and Dragonborn surrounded the keep and attacked the walls. As the fighting began, a portal opened and over a dozen riders poured through. Among them was the wizard in purple, whom the Party encountered previously in the tower. With him were eleven of the student mages, four cloaked figures, and the captured Akalda.
Our Heroes decided to let them escape and focus their efforts on confronting Thanatis. They opened Dimension Doors to the top of the tower, and met there Thanatis himself. After a brief conversation, the wizard triggered the Contingency, opening a massive portal to the Elemental Plane of Fire, which quickly began to engulf the entire tower. A long battle ensued, with Thanatis deploying some of the most deadly types of magic, but Our Heroes were ultimately victorious. As the final blow was struck, Thanatis began to melt away into a puddle of water, much to his own surprise. Despite Thanatis' apparent defeat, the portal continued to grow, and most of the Party escaped just in time. Korrigan remained behind, knowing he would not have time to escape.
The battle was won. Thanatis' army retreated back into the walls of the tower, and was transported to the Plane of Fire, leaving behind a massive crater where his seat of power once was. The army returned to Keston, and then to each faction's separate home. Serrian met with Jeyne, thanking her for allowing for her escape from Thanatis. Our Heroes returned with Captain Delin to Eadmont, stopping briefly in New Alsben to visit Joriah and research the magic that was used to create Thanatis' form.
Thirty-one days after the battle, Our Heroes arrived in Eadmont, and had a prompt audience with King Oren. They informed the King of their quest and the outcome, including the escaped riders and the portal. King Oren thanked the Party, and bid them name their reward for vanquishing, at least temporarily, this threat.
Toril, Ahna, and Orutan elected to construct guild halls, while Jeyne desired a payment of gold pieces. Orutan ordered the construction of a chapter of the Seekers of Sal'theras in Keston. Ahna and Toril constructed allied guilds in Eadmont. Ahna, building a hospital and holy place by the sea, and Toril founding the Strongscale Academy, a place for all warriors to train. As the orders went out for the construction, Our Heroes plotted their next move.
