1479 DR

The ruins of Tethgard is the site of a bloody battle between the trio of Elminster, Storm Silverhand, and the Simbul against a company of War Wizards and Purple Dragons seeking to take them into custody.

After finally admitting that they needed help saving the Realms, and having run out of easy-to-steal magic items to feed to the Simbul, Elminster seeks to gain access to artifacts known to contain the spirits of the Nine – objects powerful enough to pierce the wards surrounding the royal palace of Suzail or, Elminster believes, to permanently restore the Simbul’s sanity. He also sought to recruit the efforts of a descendant of his, Amarune Whitewave.

During one of his excursions into the palace, Elminster’s body was destroyed by Manshoon, who had secretly been peeling away the Old Mage’s contingency spells over several years. However, Manshoon departed before he realized that Elminster had survived his body’s destruction as a pile of magical ash. With the agreement of Amarune and the aid of Storm, Elminster’s essence was transferred to Amarune’s body with the aid of a spell the ex-Chosen discovered in a cache once belonging to Azuth. He now “rides the mind” of his great-granddaughter, able to control her body’s movements when he wishes.

The Simbul is restored to sanity when Elminster and Storm feed her a Blueflame item. After her mind was restored, she subdues Manshoo and charges both Elminster and Manshoon to work to gather all the Blueflame items together. After the Simbul teleports away however, Manshoon turns on Elminster and blasts his human form to ashes, but could not destroy him.
