Una is captured by the Elves and fights Briahna. After the fight she is allowed to try to warn off her friends from attacking. Aralove Grimnas introduced. Jadzia and Fie defect from the Overwatch, joining Una with the White Ravens. Gavin dies by suicide. Groups 3a and 3b are born.

The assembled armies take to the field as the Overwatch close in. Many warforged are defeated before Malchus Grimnas disappears into the crowd and uses the devide that Loreweaver gave him. Most of the warforge drop dead and the humans in the Overwatch army are routed.
Group 1 arrives mid-battle. and things aren't going so well. In a last ditch effort, Karrik decides to blow the horn that will summon Straad and Thoril approves. When Straahd arrives, he wreaks havoc on the battlefield. As a reaction, the Elves murder Karrik and were going to execute Thoril but the others step in to speak on his behalf. He is almost spared but Ironhide's arrival stops the argument, and Thoril's life is cut short.
People across Ellara and possibly further feel the ground shake as something ominous happens but no one is certain exactly what.
As Groups 1 and 4 return from successfully communicating with the orcs, they see a large black dragon attacking Winterhaven and Amarah taking flight to defend the city. The black dragon eventually overpowers Amarah, killing her in-flight and she crashes to the ground.
Groups 2 and 3 defend the seal and perform the ritual to release the gods. Briahna, Khoury and Acteronis die.
