Giant lizards with the power to petrify any man or beast that meets their cold-blooded gaze. Basilisks are creatures that have been warped by Chaos into something more malevolent than natural. It is believed that only by directly staring into the eyes of the Basilisk can one be affected by its petrifying gaze. Some claim that using a reflective surface or some other alternative method to avoid making eye contact with the creature can help to negate its power.

It is believed that only by directly staring into the eyes of the Basilisk can one be affected by its petrifying gaze. Some claim that using a reflective surface or some other alternative method to avoid making eye contact with the creature can help to negate its power.
"I have read scholarly accounts of a great and ancient land located far to the south where the bodies of dead kings are entombed within great halls as hundreds of stone - carved guardians stand vigil. I thought we'd found our own version here when we chanced upon a cave high in the mountains that was surrounded by what I at first thought were statues of various animals. Upon closer inspection, I found that the statues were of a curious sort. The animals appeared to be frozen in terror."
" I couldn't help myself wondering why someone would choose to carve such striking likenesses of the beasts in that state but my musings were cut short by a rustling sound to my left. Before I could turn my head to see what had made the noise, my assistant cried out and turned to stone right before my eyes.
"' Twas then that I ran as far and as fast as my legs could carry me. I've no idea what manner of creature could do such a thing but I'm in no hurry to find out. "
