Ok I decided to fast forward this puzzle to get the game moving forward once more. Below is the correct solution to the puzzle just to give you guys an idea of how it worked. The one symbol you got wrong was the last one the Eel.
Also I'll put up a post on the recruitment thread for Astrid's spot in the game and will NPC her till then.
Ok Happy Mother's Day this Sunday to all Moms. No matter what, they are the most precious thing you will ever know

That's one of the reasons I moved it forward as I could not find the book I took this from. I created this part of the dungeon YEARS ago so yeah I myself had trouble understanding the pattern. If I find the book I'll copy and paste it here to explain. Don't worry I'm still looking.
Ok posted for a new Alyia if anyone knows a good player give them a nudge.
So the rest of can start your posts I'll have Ulthok lead going into the tower, checking for traps and dangers. He doesn't have his spells but he does have his Wands. He also has Infravision- 60' range so he can see in the dark as we enter. He will enter cautiously. Those with Infravision should follow and the those without come last. Once all are in we closed the door and either Ulthok with his wand of illumination of other mage with illumination spell can light the way. Everyone should post that they are on alert when the door closes in case that is also a trigger for something.
Since we came in from the South, I would assume we are headed North. I would be inclined to keep going in that direction. If nothing else it might give us a sense of how big the tower is.
Did this room also have lights?
I am ok with resting to recoup spells. If we are going to do so before meeting the cyclops lich, now would be the time. That also makes it a good time to search this room and maybe the corridor we came down for secret doors as was suggested.
Lothor will continue to ponder the meaning of the empty tower.
Here would be a good place for Roan to cast "Find the Path" - to be honest I've rather lost track of what we're searching for other than "the thingy that gets us to our home time." What object or creature should I focus the spell on?
Our current quest was to reach the tower and that is done. What we do now look for "a place steeped in strong magical power".
Below is from the last meeting with Allenan.
“I have this past eve looked into the problem of returning you and myself to the future” A shocked look quickly setting itself on Maj’s face. “And I have as they always say good news and bad. The good is there may indeed be a place steeped in strong magical power to allow the travel through time.” A pause to take in a breath and to give the young girl a look to stop her from speaking and he resumed once more.
“However the bad news it is located on the Isle of the Cyclops in a tower/underground fortress of the same name. Though the island is deserted of any type of human settlement it is very close to Cirath Ungole and surely over run by creatures of evil. Rumors have been told that the tower itself is ruled by a Cyclops of immense power and strength, but none have ever confirmed this tale.”
“I cannot travel with you all at this time. What you have told me about what you find in the future means I must make changes within the mountain to be sure all is the same as you find it. For this I must take my time and be sure everything is correct. However once I have finished I will find my way to you all once again as such take this gem of location so I may track you.” Handing the clear gem to Ullthok he turned to the rest as if waiting for more questions.
Well as we read it appears that magic is being sucked away. Roan and Sirene should mention this in character so others pay attention to the effects on their magic.
This could be that the great source of magic is not from a magic generator, but a magic sucker that steals magic to feed itself. This would tend to lead to the issue of how that store of magic would be released to help us.
