Dungeon Crawl Classics #45:
Malice of the Medusa

An Adventure for Character Levels 1-3

Remember the good old days, when adventures were underground, NPCs were there to be killed, and the finale of every dungeon was the dragon on the 20th level? Those days are back. Dungeon Crawl Classics adventures don't waste your time with long-winded speeches, weird campaign settings, or NPCs who aren't meant to be killed. Each adventure is 100% good, solid dungeon crawl, with the monsters you know, the traps you remember, and the secret doors you know are there somewhere.

In the slums of a small desert-shrouded city, the malformed and degenerate huddle in darkened alleys, their ranks growing with each passing year. More and more children are birthed with horrible snake-like deformities, a result of the creeping influence of demon worship among the downtrodden of society. Now a troubling plague has befallen the higher castes: inexplicably and without warning, members of the ruling elite catch fire and within moments are reduced to mere bones. Terrified and powerless, they turn to the heroes for salvation. All the clues point to one place: the lair of a powerful medusa and her spiteful curses...
