#Dungeon23 Tomb of the Vampire Queen, Level 8, Room 13

 Beyond the spider webs, there is a hidden but not difficult to find. Especially considering this series of rooms is much like the previous three.

Room 13

Inside this room sitting on a pile of rocks and surrounded by spiders is the rare and ancient Aš ("Ash") demon.

Poison: Any creature that is bitten by the Aš must make a successful saving throw versus poison or be poisoned for 2d4+2 turns. The poison causes the victim's blood to burn from the inside. During the duration, the victim suffers from burning pain to the point where they cannot perform any actions. A remove poison counteracts this. 

Immunity to Fire: The Aš is immune to fire.

Gate Demon: The Aš can gate (25% probability of success) another Aš or 1d6 fiendish spiders.

Petrify Gaze: The Aš has the ability to petrify any creature that meets its gaze. Any creature that looks directly into the Aš's eyes must make a successful saving throw versus petrification or be paralyzed until a remove paralysis spell can be used.
