Basilisks and greater basilisks are level 4 creatures of fortress town. They are recruited from the basilisk pit.

The basilisk and greater basilisk have developed the ability to petrify their prey for three rounds. Their attacks have a 20% chance of making this occur. Petrified creatures take 50% damage from attacks and are unfrozen when struck. Unlike most of Fortress units, basilisks have pretty high stats for their level. As the other Fortress creatures they have an excellent special ability. Upgrading them right away is recommended due to the signifcant increase in speed.
