Here is the second of my entries on bawylie’s “Monster Mash” thread…
Medusa, All She Wants Is Love, Emerald Caverns
Lyrra the Medusa has a problem. She is very lonely and looking for love, but it is very hard to keep an ‘interactive’ partner around when everyone keeps turning to stone! Rather than give up, Lyrra has decided to enact a plan (using a magical mask) so that she can disguise herself and begin a search for a prospective love interest.
Will she be successful in her search for love? Will ‘people’ she encounters along the way be helpful, not care one way or the other, or be hostile to her? If nothing else, will she actually make new friends/allies along the way?
1.) Lyrra is not particular about whether the individual is male or female when it comes to her new love interest.
2.) This presents an opportunity to have what would have normally been a Lawful Evil ‘individual’ deviate outside the alignment norms for their race just to add an unexpected twist (and perhaps character ally?) to an adventure and/or campaign. Perhaps Neutral or Chaotic Good for example.
