A is for Azer

Artemios Adderblaze was born and raised by dwarves rather than his own kin, and his skill with the axe is nearly as prized by his adopted brothers as his skill at the forge. Unfortunately, growing up as a weaponsmithing prodigy who couldn't be touched (literally) left Artemios lonely even among those who professed to love him. He left home recently, relying on his skill with the axe to get him work as a bodyguard. His most recent employer, an ifrit mage, is beginning to transition from boss to friend. Although Artemios doesn't like the wizard's foul temperament or his questionable ethics, he's still the only person he has ever met who seems unafraid of his fiery nature. Because of this alone, he has stayed at the mage's side, and is growing more bitter by the day.

This month, as a participant in the A-Z Blog Challenge, I'll be writing a post each day (except for Sundays) and letting the alphabet guide my content. Thematically, all of my April posts (at least those related to the blog challenge) will be monster related. Each day, I'll be challenging myself to create an encounter, NPC, location, etc. that features a monster I've never used before in a roleplaying game. Hopefully this will push me to include more variety in my current campaign, and who knows... maybe I'll find a few new favorites.
