Medusae are female humanoids with hair of swarming snakes. They
are hateful creatures that can petrify any creature that meets their
gaze. The typical medusa has a pale-skinned, very shapely woman's
form. At times easily confused with a normal woman, the medusa's
true nature is revealed at distances of less than 20 feet. Its face
is horrible - the snakes writhe constantly, especially if the medusa
The medusa dwells in dark caves or the lower regions of large abandoned
buildings and will arrange the lighting such that its home is filled
with flickering shadows. The one form of treasure never found in
a medusa's lair is a mirror. If a medusa sees its own reflection
in a mirror, it turns to stone itself.
Medusae are competent in most roles they take, but they shall ever
walk the path of darkness.
