Dogwood City A to Z: Xog, King of Saturn

This is Xog.  He's the King of...well, I'll let him tell you...

Captain Midnight traveled to Saturn back in the day.  He found some crazy-looking Saturnians:

What's up with that body structure?  Well, the genius inventor Captain Jim "Red" Albright (psst...that's Captain Midnight!) figured it out.  It's actually kind of cool, even if...well, aren't Saturn's rings made of solids?  (Note:  I am neither an astronomer nor a geologist.)

You can tell Xog from the rest of them by the crown-like ring and the...geyser-type-thing spewing gas from the top of his head.

Now, if left alone, I'm not sure if Xog would have become a villain or not.  But, in the wake of Captain Midnight's "invasion" of his planet, he and his army invade Earth right back.  I look forward to seeing what the Battle of Dogwood City looks like!

aka King of Saturn, King of the Saturnians
Level 5
3 Hit Dice
Defense 12

"Arm" bash (melee) +3 (1D damage)

Saturnian Warrior
Level 3
1 Hit Die
Defense 11

"Arm" bash (melee) +1 (1D damage)

Being formed from gases in and around Saturn, Xog and all of his warriors display Saturnian characteristics.  They can fly, take on a gaseous form, and shapeshift to resemble everyday objects (such as chairs).

Xog inspires Saturnians who fight with him; his Saturnian allies gain +1 to all attack and saving throws while they are within 30 feet of him.


  1. I like it. I have never seen this before (not a surprise) but it looks really cool.

  2. Like Tim, I love the weirdness. This guy is definitely interesting looking.

    1. I think I got pretty lucky with the slim pickings of the letter X.

  3. Nothing like good alien invasion!

    1. Agreed! I so want to game one some day; this guy might be just the ticket (alongside some Killer Klowns from Outer Space, of course).

  4. Just realized you forgot to put your blog tags on this and Yank which means they don't show up when someone clicks on the Dogwood City label.

    1. Whoa, thanks for noticing that! Fixing now...
