Thanks for the tip on Chapter 3. Yeah there are cool moments like when all the mages are summoned, but a bunch of repetitive fights against unimaginative enemies? Yeah, that's going to get reworked.
Ooh! I got it!
Chapter one stays as is, with the exception of the ceremony.
Cut out Chapter 2, and put in something similar right before the final boss fight.
Replace some of the Wereants in Chapter 3 with further Unshadowed NPCs the players have met.
After the Larva is trapped by the magical net, Jatembe gives the PCs Bunta, his magical soul boat. They go into the larva's soul, free everyone's shadows, and then fight the 3 bosses after they're ejected.
PCs are named the magic warriors; The End.
With all that, the players aren't just stopping a Kaiju with 10th-level spells, they're also stopping a hive-mind of powerful spellcasters. Seems like an appropriate 6th book threat.
