#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 3, Room 26

Going left, you go through a hallway to another chamber. This one is square. There is an opening straight ahead.  There is a statue of a demonic-looking dragon figure. It has gems for eyes.

Room 26

The gems are not real but the dragon is.

Coming within 5' of the "statue" will breathe a gas that turns the victim to stone.  They get a saving throw vs. Petrify/Paralysis. Victims get a +2 bonus to their save, the dragon is rather hungry.

This is a creature, but its own skin has been turned to stone due to a horrible magical experiment to create a dragon that could breathe a cloud of petrification gas and it worked, to a degree.  The dragon turned itself to stone.  It is still alive and it can't move or eat, so it is quite insane now.  It can't be killed. 

Once it breathes it has to wait another hour to breathe again. Anyone turned to stone will become normal again in 5 turns, but their Dexterity will suffer a permanent reduction of 1 point.

What happens if somebody casts flesh to stone on the dragon?

OOO! Very good question!
I will have to think about it, but my gut says it will kill it.
