X is for Xorn

I was going to use xorn once, back when I was running through the Age of Worms adventure path, but it just didn't work out. I don't remember now if they were actually in one of the adventures, or if I had a side quest I intended to use them in, or if I totally swapped out part of one module for another one (I put the Spire of Long Shadows in a level of the abyss described in Dungeon #60, for example). Unfortunately, the five xorn miniatures I purchased were never used... either the group decided not to pursue the plot hook that I just knew they would (surprise, surprise), or the campaign ended before we got there.

But seriously, how can you pass up on a monster that looks that creepy and eats diamonds for dinner? They're awesome in a peculiar way, and someday those five xorn are going to show up in one of my campaigns. I'm sure of it.

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.
