When we left off, we'd just finished off a rune giant, and took a long rest in Gustav's magic mansion. Then we took an automatic stairway to the next level. In the next room there was another one of those arcane chairs that Gustav keeps playing with, this one focused on Necromancy. There was one door, which opened into the lair of Xin, our campaign's final boss.
The second Crystallis was Hasted, but Slancio dispelled that. Fellany got off several crits on the Crystallis in one round, and Meruca finished it off. Xin fired off some powerful darts that ignored armor, and dispelled the zone of Silence. Xin's armor kept transforming, which effected what effects he was under. Sometimes he was hasted (giving him five powerful claw attacks), and other times he auto-passed all saving throws. His armor also had poison spines. However, whenever Xin would roll a one, he would become stunned for a round, due to his unstable mental state. At one point he was both stunned (auto fail all saves) and in the "auto pass all saves" mode at the same time, a contradiction that nearly destroyed the universe.
Bjertha kept two of the Axiomites busy and away from the rest of the battle. The two Axiomites kept trying to use sneak attacks on Bjertha, but the fighter's Displacer Cloak kept them from hitting. One Axiomite was brought down by a Magic Missile, and Meruca killed another. Then Xin used Chain Lightning on Slancio, Gustav, and Gustav's guards. Xin kept trying to use something called "Mage's Disjunction" on our Sihedron, which never worked but made us nervous.
Yet another Crystallis appeared. Meruca killed the final Axiomite. Fellany made made one final attack on Xin, doing a couple of Crits for a total of 101 points of damage. This destroyed Xin, causing the Crystallis to die as well. The crystal tower began to shudder and crumble apart. We loaded ourselves up however possible, and escaped the tower.
With Xin destroyed, the tower collapsed, and we headed back to town to celebrate our victory.
