A mysterious tomb and a Gorgon

Following a clue that led to the cure to the deadly Aalen Blooms, the inhabitants of Sapience managed to uncover a mysterious tomb that laid beneath the sands near Akhenades, once the temple grounds of the Goddess Niuri. Delighted in the discovery, the sickened Aetolians were met with a setback - a fearsome creature in the appearance of a serpentine Gorgon emerged to defend the sacred tomb. Caught unaware, they fell to the petrifying gaze of the Gorgon, their statues serving as reminders of the creature's power.
