Stone to Flesh!
One of my party members was petrified last night by a cockatrice in the moathouse.

The group has now left the moathouse and is travelling back to Homllet dragging their new found statue. This group has taken a beating with all characters suffering severe stat losses.

The characters need to find a 11th level wizard in order for him to be able to cast “Stone to Flesh”.

Unfortunately Burne in Hommlet is only a 10th level wizard.

I guess I could assume he is powerful enough to cast this spell.

This group has taken a severe beating over the last couple of sessions dealing with the obelisk and the undisturbed secret shrine found in the Ghoul caves.
Everything they should not have done they pretty much did.

The only character who did not suffer a severe temporary stat loss was the one who ate the black apple after touching the tip of the obelisk. However this character was the unlucky one turned to stone.

Should I be nice or should I let them find a wizard powerful enough to help this character?

Have any other DMs had to deal with this situation?

Wow. I thought this was in the FAQ. I'll have to add it.

Y'Dey can cast the 5th level spell Break Enchantment, which will dispel the petrification.

-Thrommel, who's clearly falling down on the job...

Funny how many people overlook the spell break enchantment as the spell to dispel petrification, especially when you consider there is no risk that the one freed dies in the process. Now the chance is not 100% the spell will work in one go. I wonder if a temple will charge for each casting or only once and then casts any other spell for free until success.

In the description of services, it says Y'Dey "believes in earning one's own way, rather than getting gifts."

This suggests to me that they'd have to pay both times, but I think there's some wiggle room if the party has really done an excellent job on winning her over.

-Thrommel, who wins her over with a big bite on the neck. RAR!

Re: Stone to Flesh
the wording "break enchantment" does not really hint, that it would break a "flesh to stone" since a flesh to stone is a transmutation, not an enchantment.

That might be the reason for so many not checking it, when looking for a cure... (I did not know it for quite some time myself...)

I think the creater of "break enchantment" has cast a "mislead" on the spell's name...

I had a similar problem witha character turned to stone by a cockatrice. I didn't realize at that time, that break enchantment would work, so I simply ruled that Burne had a scroll of stone to flesh and then we simply continued.
