Elder Xorn

The Elder Xorn has grown fat and large off of its diet of precious gems and minerals. It's tough skin resembles that of unpolished diamonds and has grown tolerant to the extreme heat and cold of the Elemental Chaos.

When the Xorn smells magical materials, it makes a point to demand these items from adventurers, and will often bully them until they give up a suitable amount of their magical weapons, or a large amount of platinum, gold, silver and copper (in that order).

Xeran's Tastes

Because the Xorn has grown so fat from minerals, it is looking for a different diet to sustain itself. By hunting through the Elemental Chaos, it can occasionally find magical elements, but never enough to satisfy it's unending hunger for it. The Elder Xorn will travel to the Material Plane and hide out in dungeons and caverns, waiting for adventurers to come by.

Hidden Danger

If the Xorn doesn't get its way and the adventurers refuse to pay the Xorn tribute, it will leave them alone but continue to follow them through the stone. When it appears that they are weakened, or maybe have even more food for the Xorn, it will suddenly emerge beneath their feet, surprising them and will attempt to attack whoever has the most gold or magical minerals. It cares not for organic material, and is only attracted to minerals.
