Everything was in place for the final encounter. The last shard of of the shadow stone would be the most difficult to obtain, however. It was embedded in the hide of a dragon that had been taken to the plane of shadow and corrupted into a shadow dragon. The last portal was in Anauroch. Jasmine Onyx, Selaowana Illonises, Chi’kik’edu, Jackeniki , along with a handful of purple dragon knights traveled through Anauroch to ensure there were no forces outside the portal. Once through the few that were stationed there, they entered the portal and joined the main forces.
The main forces had been brought via the magic of Arathluth and Baerauble Etharr. Tradak Ironhouse had built a suit of magical armor, and engaged entire squads on his own (though Wasp and Van were often seen picking climbers off of him). Jerinar Onyx inserted himself in with a unit of soldiers and commanded the War Wizards. Arathluth transformed into a tentacled monstrosity resembling the Terrasque and wreaked havoc.
They fought the armies of Thultanthar, while the shadow dragon made strafing runs against both armies. Eventually Shar appeared and slew the shadow dragon herself, means to an end we did not understand. Nevertheless, they retrieved the final shard of the shadow stone and retreated, sealing the final portal. Arathluth used the power of all the shards to shield Cormyr from further portals being opened, and then took them with him for safekeeping.
The war with the shadovar was at an end. Cormyr was victorious, and safe.
