Hello, As the title indicates, I am looking for a cure for petrification (e.g. Medusa, basilisk, cockatrice). These cure ideas can be made up or examples from mythology. My current WIP involves petrification, but I am struggling to come up with a practical cure. In my story world petrification is a statue curse; people, creatures, or animals that are petrified are encased by or become stone. I have considered a potion, but it seems too simple. What makes the most sense (for a fantasy world with magic and potions and etc.) as a cure for someone who is petrified? I'm looking for any ideas that I can use or build off of. Don't worry about the specifics of my story, they aren't important by any means. Show me what you got! UPDATE: I have another question about petrifaction, and this may be more difficult. What if a character is petrified and he has no companion to bring him/her a cure? Are there any events that could occur or precautions a person could take? This is to say the person expects to be petrified and is trying to plan for it in advance. For my WIP, I'm planning on petrification to be an instantaneous process. It doesn't tak hours or minutes but seconds. It may be difficult to drink a potion or apply an ointment if petrification occurs instantly rather than over a period of time. Of course, the character could drink the potion knowing it will last X number of hours or days. The go to solution is an amulet, whether it's enchanted or is just able to naturally negate the petrification process. Weather is an event I considered. Thoughts?
