The Citadel of Chaos

Luck is not with you.
Your first glance at the serpent-headed creature was enough to seal your fate.
You cry out in anguish as you feel your joints begin to seize
and your limbs become heavy and uncontrollable.
As the Gorgon's stony stare takes effect you fight for balance
— but lose it and crash to the floor.
Your petrified body cracks on impact
and you now lie in several pieces before Balthus Dire.

You have failed in your mission.

Start again from the beginning.
