The heroes made their way out of the laboratory to the assembly area, where they found Osmun's Spyglass. Finally, they were able to find directions to the Central Battery, where all the remaining workers were gathering.
There, they met Delan, whom Jin had been contracted to kill. The leader of the workers, Delan explained carefully the nature of the Central Battery and guided them to disassemble it for Crate Storms, several orders of magnitude more powerful than Bottled Lightning.
The heroes led the workers and several wagons of lightning out of the Silverflame Mine, where Delan dutifully helped them destroy it with a powerful detonation of lightning. Though the workers spurned Kunail for his elfhood, they were nonetheless thankful for being rescued. Brolin the Journeyman Priest was sent ahead to prepare the town for their arrival.
When the team finally arrived the next morning, they created a War Council and set about making the most of their three days to prepare for the battle.
