The writeup in Villians Unlimited for the villian Medusa
left quite alot unanswered about creating Gorgon characters, so I finished
the work. Here it is in a more complete generation table, converted to
The Gorgon race is an ancient one, thought to be nearly
extinct. Some members of this raced are thought to have visited earth
long ago. With the coming of the Rifts, some members of this race have
appeared on Earth again.
While the true origin of the Gorgon has been lost in time, the truth is
they are the product of an ancient Splurgoth Bio-Wizard experiments, in
attempt to create super beings based on the Altara warrior women. However,
while they were a powerful supernatural race, the process also
disrupted their ability to reproduce, and also destroyed their psionics and
diminished their natural skills. Gorgons reproduce the same way as an
Altara, through a natural cloning, but only do so once every 2D4x10 years.
The Intelligence didn't realize that he had inadventaltly added to their
lifespan in the same experiements, so he considered them to be non-viable
as a warrior-slave race. The Splurgoth
that created them sold the few he had off
as slaves. A good number of them escaped though a dimensional
anomaly that the same Splurgoth was working with. These Gorgons
spread throughout the multiverse.
