    Hi! It's your friendly neighborhood thread necromancer!

    I have a question you might be able to answer. I am looking for the origin of the Al-Qadim Bird Maiden - which is missing form your list. As far as I can tell, its first (and only) appearance was in the 1993 Monstrous Manual for 2nd Edition. In '96 it appeared in a Dragon ecology article, but it never appeared in any Al-Qadim sourcebox, adventure, or other product. Not even a mention.

    So it looks for all the world like somebody just decided to tag on a Zakharan variant of the Swanmay in the MM, and it is the only Al-Qadim monster that was new to the book.

    Did you ever find anything further about it?

    Those are the only two references to the bird maiden I can find in Echohawk's monster index (or at least the most recent version I have). We did convert it as a template (for eventually addition to the CC, whenever that is in working order again) here.

    Pretty much what Freyar said.

    When we did the conversion the only official mentions of the Al-Qadim Bird Maiden I could find was in the 2E Monstrous Manual and that Dragon Magazine article you mentioned.

    Incidentally, those two sources' mention of Aaracokra priests teaching Bird Maidens their duties at the "Crown of All Feathers" are also the only mentions of Aaracokra in Al-Qadim that I could find - and the only mention of the Crown of All Feathers, for that matter.

    Ath-kethin messaged me privately, because I completely missed this thread resurrection .

    The only things I had to add were:
    • There is a mention of "a veil of feathers, once worn by a bird maiden of far Zakhara" on p150 of Volo's Guide to the Sword Coast.
    • Tim Beach was the project co-ordinator for two TSR projects released in June 1993, Al-Qadim's City of Delights and the Monstrous Manual. A Zakharan creature's otherwise random appearance in the MM might be because of that connection.

    Well that's increased our reference sources for Bird Maidens by 50%, with the added bonus of it being a non-AQ source.

    That leads me to wonder whether City of Delights as any references to Bird Maidens, the Crown of Feathers, or Aaracokra.

    ...goes to check.

    I couldn't find any feathery maidens or crowns, but City of Delight does mention Aaracokra a grand total of once, with the section on the Populations of Huzuz saying "and even the extremely rare aarakocra, kenku, and trolls" are included in the 1% made up of "unusual races".
