Mistresses of Stone: A Playable Medusa Race for Ravnica


Fill the ranks of Undercity as a Medusa, one of the rarest races in Ravnica!

Once rulers of the Golgari Swarm, the medusae have been long since fallen from grace. They are spoken in whispers and rumor, found in mazes of stone and rot that trap even the most clever and stalwart adventurers. 

  • Includes traits, names, potential guild allegiances, and ideas for character appearance.
  • Balanced to match the other Ravnica races: no need for level adjustment.
  • Not playing Ravnica? Don't worry! This race can fit into any setting where a Medusa would be found.

MtG gorgons don't have snake hair that can attack, just weird tentacles.

I honestly think that the only problem I would have is that they are called Medusae (plural for Medusa.) My biggest issue with this is that they aren't Medusae, they're Gorgons. Even in MTG lore, Vraska is a Gorgon and there are other Gorgons in the game. Medusa is a Gorgon from Greek mythology, not the entire race.

That would probably get confusing with the D&D Gorgon being a large metallic bull that breathes poison.

You're not wrong. I still find it a little bit annoying though, you know? And I can understand that they call it a Medusa to save from confusion. It's just a small continuity error in the WotC multiverse. They could've even gone with "Ravnican Gorgon" or something to that extent.

They do explain the distinction in the first paragraph in the suplement, which you can see in the preview.

Because the supplement is for use whe playing D&D, it's best that the race is called Medusa for people who are less familiar with Ravnica or are not playing Ravnica material.

There's a monster in D&D named medusa which is a humanoid with snakes for hair, and a monster named gorgon which is a poison breathing bull. Better to name the race of humanoid snake-haired people after the former, in this case.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
