Gustav fled the room while sending his zombies against the Retriever. The enemy then used a power on Gustav that turned him to stone. The rest of us saw Gustav's statue and joined the battle. Meruca also got petrified, but luckily for both of them the effect was only temporary. It was a tough monster because it had several elemental beam attacks, and we had disadvantage on most attacks against it. Bjertha dealt the final blow.
The rod turned out to be a valuable magic implement... for Warlocks. Oh well, it's still probably worth some money. We couldn't heal the dragon, so we attempted to teleport it back to town. Due to some wards in the tower, our attempt shattered the dragon. Gustav stored the pieces in his portable hole for later.
In another room we found a silvery chair with a rune-etched disc floating above it. We'd seen one of these before, it's allows Wizards to access every spell for a specific school of magic. We went back out into the hallway and went through the door at the end. There we saw another spell chair. Gustav is very happy to have access to all these spells.
We went through the archway and entered a round room. The walls were pitch black and absorbed light. In the center, on the floor, there was a teleportation circle. We decided not to go through yet, as there was still one more room on this level we hadn't seen. We took a long rest and checked out the final door. It was another round room, with the remains of clockwork musicians. We saw another crystal hand appear, but we didn't see a point in fighting this one. We went back to the teleportation room.
Deciding turnabout was fair play, Gustav cast slow on the Aeon. Our party members gradually saved against our slow effect (Bjertha was last). The Aeon attempted to cast Mass Inflict Wounds, but Slancio counterspelled it. Meruca finished off the Aeon and we ended the session.
There is no game on 5/7. Our next game will be 5/14.
