If I remeber correctly mirrors negate the medusa's power. So you could protect yourself by using one of those fancy binoculars.
@The Flame War, ...a periscope? Put some blades on the top of it and start head bobbing and you have yourself a weapon.
@Theman0893, good idea but I was not talking about pericopes. More expensive binoculars use lenses and mirrors as oposed to just lenses.
@The Flame War, i believe you are incorrect actually. In most tales and games Madusa are actually most vulnerable to seeing their own reflection, meaning if you were to see their reflection it would turn you just as much to stone as it would turn them. I could imagine an amount of the petrification gaze would be weakened possibly, but thats up to the DM's discretion of course.
@Marine Scientist, thanks for the correction. I wasn't aware. Maybe I confused it with something else
