I'm dealing with an interactive work of fiction right now, and one proposal is to combine two types of puzzles with a magnetic gas. I know that fermionic $\ce{^6Li}$, when cooled below $\pu{1 K}$, has shown verifiable ferromagnetic properties, but that is far too cold to be applicable to the work's setting.

(I'm only willing to suspend the user's belief so much.)

I know that on heating above the Curie temperature for a material, magnetic properties dissolve; but what that temperature is varies quite a bit. (I've seen them between $\pu{90 K}$ and $\pu{1400 K}$, which is pretty radical.) Has anyone yet discovered another molecule that remains magnetic in a gaseous phase? Are any of them at least hypothesized?
