As you sneak down the hall from the Attic, you pass by some glass windows.
Suddenly, an horrific visage presses against the glass! Your guide points
out that the glass prevents this foul creature from assaulting you. You
move down the hall, and are surprised to fint that the last window is open,
allowing the creature to attack! You hurry away, down the hall.
You approach an archway covered by a curtain. You shoulder aside the curtain
to discover the most awful creature yet seen. It is a beautiful woman with
a snake's tail, a Gorgon right out of the storybooks. The floor is covered
with snakes, and several statues scattered about bear mute testimony to
the evil Gorgon's powers. You contemplate attacking the creature, but are
dissuaded by the presence of two blindfolded guards.
The Gorgon offers to supply that which you seek, and holds forth a jewel.
Your guide shields his eyes and cowers as the Gorgon calls you forward.
He presses the small mirror he got from the madwoman into your hand, saying
"Take this, but don't let her see it. It may help you." The Gorgon
demands that you look into her eyes as you take the gem. As you look into
her eyes and are not turned to stone, she becomes angered and calls upon
her guards to kill you. You flee, led by your fleet guide.
