A grid xorn, X, is a monster that appears in SlashTHEM.

The grid bug is a xorn counterpart to the grid bug: it possesses the xorn's thick skin, metallivore diet and ability to walk through walls, as well as the grid bug's ability to hit as a +1 weapon and its restrictions to movement and attacking. Grid xorns also have shock and poison resistance like grid bugs.


Grid xorns are among the earliest monsters you can encounter in the main dungeon. They always generate hostile, often appear in small groups, and do not leave a corpse upon death.


Despite being much more mobile, grid xorns are as slow as regular xorns and are not much stronger than grid bugs themselves - they can be easily dispatched by all but the unluckiest starting characters.
