When the room would go cold, it got difficult to walk. When it got hot, we took damage. We finally wore it down, and Fellany made the final hit. The room continued to get hot and cold after the statue died, so we didn't stay long. We gathered up the silver bars (which were skymetal) and teleported again.
The next room was full of poison gas. We held our breath when we could, but it we knew we had to get through this one quickly. We met a Marilith named Belmedra. Slancio flirted with her a bit, and she revealed that she wished to be released. The two were really hitting it off until she noticed Maruca opening the exit door. Fighting ensued.
The next room was filled with gears and golem parts. We were almost disappointed that nothing tried to kill us. Gustav used his Orrery to see visions of the past. He saw scenes of Xin working with gears and building an army of clockwork soldiers. When we were done looking around, we proceeded through another door.
The next room had crumbling walls, and was filled with a smoky haze. On the ground was the body of a 40 foot giant. Gustav got a vision of Xin, who had just finished building a war machine. A giant appeared behind Xin and attacked him. With his last bit of strength, Xin killed the giant with an explosive spell. Once the vision was over, Gustav wanted to revive the giant's body for his undead horde, but the giant was one step ahead of him. It started climbing to its feet.
The giant was immune to fire, cold, lightning, and probably a few other things we didn't try. He had gems embedded in his skin that would sometimes explode with bursts of sparks. At one point he used a powerful "Hellfire Orb" spell. We hit him with a lot of powerful attacks, Bjertha's Undead Bane longsword coming in especially handy. In the end, though, Gustav finished him off with a cherry-tapping Magic Missile.
We ended the session there. Gustav might still raise the giant for his army. We reached level 17 with 228,030 XP. We're going to take a long rest here to level up.
