Monster: Gorgon

Monster: Gorgon

No, not the snake one. I don't remember ever using gorgons, but I've always liked them.

Weak Bite (11): 1d crushing (KYOS: 1d+2 crushing). Reach C.
Petrifying Breath (12): The gorgon is able breathe a cloud of petrifying gas. This cloud is a ranged attack with 1/2D 10, Max 10, Acc 3, RoF 1, Shots N/A, and Recoil 1. The cloud covers a 4-yard radius area, persists for 10 seconds, and drifts from the initial point with the wind. The gorgon has to wait for 15 seconds before it can use this ability again. Using this ability costs 1 FP.
The gas must be inhaled to have any effect, but it ignores all DR. Only Doesn’t Breathe and Filter Lungs protect completely – although a victim who makes a Sense roll to notice the attack in time may hold his breath (see Holding Your Breath, p. B351). Each victim resists with a HT roll. If he fails, he is permanently petrified. This effect cannot be removed with Dispel Magic, but can be removed with Remove Curse, Stone to Flesh, or an equivalent.
