Yeah Bill! You are a victim of narrative! Cyril won't be using the Armour in Nevara he lost it. I also screwed up which hand is the stone hand and I'm too lazy to change it! This page also explains Cyril's gratuitous use of magic and not being turned completely to stone.
In other news I'll be updating the reference sheet to clear up some of the specifics of the curse and whatever (I didn't want to give anything away until I got all of this uploaded).
