The Temple of Vipers is the fifth level (slot four) of Catacomb Armageddon (1992). Following from their appearance in the previous level, this one is set within a temple complex devoted to the gorgon vipers.

Items Present[edit]


  • While descriptions of Gorgons vary across Greek mythology and occur in the earliest examples of Greek literature, the term commonly refers to any of three sisters who had hair made of living, venomous snakes, as well as a horrifying visage that turned those who beheld her to stone. Traditionally, while two of the Gorgons were immortal, Stheno and Euryale, their sister Medusa was not and she was slain by the demigod and hero Perseus.
  • Astral projection (or astral travel) is a term used in esotericism to describe a willful out-of-body experience (OBE) that assumes the existence of a soul or consciousness called an "astral body" that is separate from the physical body and capable of travelling outside it throughout the universe. Here it is used to refer to rooms featuring teleportation.
