Notes ***Gaze Attack*** - The cockatrice must expend both a Magic Point and an Action Point on its turn to activate this Dreadful power. This forces an opposed roll of the ***Cockatrice’s Willpower against the victim’s Evade*** (to avert their eyes in time). If the victim loses he suffers an immediate Major Wound to the Head, haemorrhaging blood from the eyes, ears, nostrils and mouth. A further standard Endurance roll is needed on the next round to avoid death. The Death Gaze is also effective against plant-life, causing all but the hardiest plants to wither and die against the monster’s evil glare. Curiously, these beasts are not immune to their own gaze; if forced to glimpse its own reflection, it must succeed in a Willpower roll or die on the spot. ***Acidic Blood*** Released upon injury, 1d6 damage to weapons (no AP protection) for 3 rounds.
