Medusa is a monster found in the third Hero and Monster Collection set, Crusade of the Forgotten. It was first found in the Second Edition Conversion Kit.

Description

Tangled and twisted approximations of human women, medusae are a horror to behold. Although the myth that gazing upon them turns the viewer to stone is not true, it has its basis in the potent petrification magic these creatures command. The most powerful medusae, often called hags, can use their many limbs to cast multiple spells simultaneously.

In times long past, a den of medusae spun a myth that their gaze could turn a living man to stone. Many fools have entered the lairs of these conniving serpent demons, wielding ineffectual shields of glass or stumbling forward with eyes tightly closed, but the deadly hexes of the medusae are easily cast on men who refuse to watch. Now, the medusae employ their magic in the service of the Forgotten, enslaving the innocent and destroying those who oppose them.
