A comprehensive review of my favorite D&D humanoid: the Xvart

The Xvart first shows up as the Svart in White Dwarf #9 (Oct. 1978) in the trove of deliciously bizarre monsters known as the Fiend Factory, we then encounter actual Xvarts in Fiend Folio (1981). The first thing you’ll probably notice about these goblin-kobold things is that they are blue. When we say blue, we mean blue from head to toe and not because they are sad. Although the picture found in the sourcebook is black and white, close your eyes and imagine a fierce blue creature the size of a goblin. They have blazing orange eyes, a nice contrast to the blueness.
