    EDIT: As there is an official version of the xorn, I won't bother updating these guys to MM3 standards.

    XORN

    A xorn is a strange creature of elemental earth. It is shaped somewhat like a barrel, with three stubby legs at the base, three powerful arms (each ending in three opposable digits) around the midsection, and three large eyes between the arms. The huge, powerful mouth of the xorn is at the top of its head. Xorn eat gems and precious metals, and if they smell such delicacies on a band of adventurers, they will demand them. If not appeased, the xorn will attempt to take their snack by force.

    XORN GRABBER--- Level 10 Skirmisher
    Medium elemental magical beast (earth)--- XP 500

    [Melee] Triple Grab (standard; at will): The xorn grabber makes up to three grab attacks. For each creature that it has grabbed, it must either forfeit one of these attacks or release the grabbed creature.

    [Melee] Bite (standard; only against a grabbed target; at will): +15 vs. AC; 2d6+5 damage.

    Combat Advantage:
    If the xorn grabber has combat advantage, it deals an extra 1d6 points of damage on its attacks.

    Earth Glide (move; at will): The xorn can move or shift into or through solid earth or stone without leaving a tunnel or disturbing the ground at all. While in the ground, it cannot attack or be attacked.

    EDIT: Revised to MV/MM3 standards here.

    AVOLAKIA

    Avolakia are hideous creatures that combine the worst features of an octopus, a worm and an insect. In its natural form, it stands ten feet tall, with a pallid, grey-yellow wormlike body that shimmers with yellow slime. The creature supports itself and moves about on a set of six suckered tentacles, each of which is tipped by a staring yellow eye. Where the creature’s head should be, an avolakia has a sheath that contains a set of three cruelly hooked mandibles. Eight long, spidery arms tipped with insectoid claws protrude from ridges halfway up its body. Avolakia reek of mold and decay.

    Avolakia can eat living or dead flesh, but they find it disgusting. Instead, they prefer undead flesh, preferably fresh off the flank of a zombie.

    Avolakia are known to have a preference for the worm-god Kyuss. They make living sacrifices during terrible rituals, seeking to grant power to (or receive power from) their restless deity. Avolakia are known to work with other intelligent creatures at times; they are infamous for their alliances with mind flayers. When the two species work together to capture prey, the illithids extract the brains and devour them while the avolakia animate the dead to serve as undead shock troops and food.

    GREENVISE

    A greenvise is an ambulatory plant horror that stalks jungles and the fringes of some humanoid settlements. They are larger versions of the common Venus flytrap, large and dangerous enough to catch humanoid prey.

    [Melee] Swallow Whole (standard; against a grabbed bloodied target only; at will): The greenvise attempts to swallow its victim whole: +13 vs. Fortitude; Hit: the target is restrained and suffers ongoing 10 acid damage; Miss: 2d6+5 damage. If the victim escapes being restrained, he is still grabbed but is no longer swallowed.

    [Close] Death Fog (minor; sustain minor; recharges when it swallows a victim whole) Acid: Burst 3; creates a cloud of acidic fog that lasts until the end of the greenvise fogger’s next turn. Each square within the area counts as difficult terrain and is heavily obscured (all adjacent targets have concealment; nothing further away can be seen). Any creature that begins its turn in the death fog is subject to an attack: +12 vs. Fortitude; 1d8+5 acid damage.

    Updated to MM3/MV standards here. Also, added a Baphomet-aligned morkoth.

    MORKOTH

    Morkoths are strange undersea monsters. They are rarely seen, for their victims rarely survive to report their tales. A morkoth reportedly resembles a deep-sea fish with bulging eyes, protruding teeth and a sail-like fin along its back. Its lower body trails away in a series of eight octopus-like tentacles, but a morkoth also reportedly has crustacean-like legs on its underbelly.

    A morkoth lives at the center of a series of spiraling, interconnecting tunnels. A morkoth’s lair is often one of its strongest defenses, for the very act of traversing it subjects creatures to a hypnotic lull; treat this as an aura effect, as described in each morkoth’s entry.

    Morkoths are often accompanied by other unsavory aquatic life forms, but these are usually opportunists; a morkoth knows no loyalty to any creature save itself.

    MORKOTH SCHEMER--- Level 10 Lurker
    Medium aberrant magical beast--- XP 500
    ---
    Initiative +11; Senses Perception +8; darkvision
    Hypnotic Lair (Charm) aura affects all creatures with line of sight to the morkoth within its lair; attacks each affected creature at the start of its turn: +11 vs. Will; Hit: the morkoth is invisible to the target until the start of its next turn (after the aura attacks again), even if it attacks.

    [Melee basic] Bite (standard; at will): +15 vs. AC; 1d8+5. If the morkoth schemer is invisible to the target, it does not know that it took damage, or how much, until the start of its next turn. (The target’s effects that trigger on bloodied, if any, trigger upon the victim’s becoming aware that he is bloodied.)

    Disorienting Withdrawal (move; only when bloodied; encounter): Only while underwater; the morkoth schemer shifts 4 squares.

    Combat Advantage: The morkoth schemer does an extra 1d6 damage when it has combat advantage.

    Hypnotic Lair (Charm)

    I find this really difficult to interpret. So, when is the morkoth ever visible?

    Note to self: need to work on the wording on this one some more.

    My intention is to ape the 1e feel of the morkoth. Originally, you got in the thing's lair, got hypnotized, and didn't even realize that it was eating you alive. (That's where the "take your damage at the start of your turn" clause came from.) To that end, I set up the Hypnotic Lair ability intending that the morkoth would only be visible when:

    1. It is out of its lair.
    2. Its Hypnotic Lair ability misses, and the target's next turn hasn't come up yet.
