 Special abilities:
Death stare

Gorgons and mighty gorgons are level 5 creatures of fortress town. They are recruited from the gorgon lair. The sturdy gorgons attack with their acidic breath. The mighty gorgon has a death stare with a 10% chance per attack of killing 1 creature in a troop outright, applied for each Mighty Gorgon in the troop. Unlike most "magic" abilities, this works on Black Dragons, but not on undead.

Special ability death stare[edit]

Mighty Gorgons have special ability death stare, which may occur after the stack have attacked, including retaliations. When the stack attacks, the successful death stare occurs before the enemy has chance to retaliate. Every gorgon in the stack has 10% chance to cause death stare. Successful stare instantly kills the 'top' unit of a stack, leaving the new 'top' unit with full health. The stare cannot kill more enemies than 1/10th from the number of Mighty Gorgons in a stack rounded up. In other words, the stare of 1–10 Mighty Gorgons may only kill one enemy, while a stack of 11 might kill two.

Calculation[edit]

PR% = 1 - 0,90^N

PR% = Chance to kill at least one enemy creature

N   = Number of Mighty Gorgons in a stack
