Another Underworld Kingdom god!
Zsakrn the Double-Faced is the master of one of the domains of the dead, the Gorge of Grey Mists. Sometimes he allows the dead to communicate with living persons via dreams and omens, mostly to simply baffle and confuse mortals. Also some says that Zsakrn is associated with all bad news, sad events and minor disasters. He feeds on mischief and jealousy, so this may be the cause why he is considered as an rival of the Cockroach King.
Great Cheater is another aspect of Zsakrn, so he has believers amongst many gamblers, tricksters and deceivers. He is also sometimes worshipped by dying people, who want to seek peace in his bleak, silent domain. Priests of Zsakrn are usually very diverse, as some of them are skilled orators, politicians or even demagogues, while others are rather silent and withdrawn keepers of the morgues and burial sites.
Commandments and restrictions: varied, depending on the aspect of Zsakrn – some believers are allowed (or even encouraged) to cheat, deceive and annoy others, while others are more oriented towards matters of the dead, but even them are usually malicious and full of twisted, black humor.
Blessings and rewards: Charisma bonuses, saving throws bonuses, Gambling skill, immune to special attacks of undead.
Curses: transformation into undead after death, multiple personality, extreme malice.
Miracles and signs: grey mists, dimming of lights, strange whispers and laughs, many small and rather insignificant accidents happening at once.

Six inches-long staff, made of white wood. If used in combat, it deals +1 ice damage. Also, it has 7 charges that can be used to cast a spell. Unfortunately, each time spell must be randomly determined and there's no known method to predict the spell which is being cast. Roll 1d6 to determine the effect:
- Summon the Yeti (monster disappears after 20 combat rounds, moreover it can be controlled only for 7 rounds);
- Ice Ball (similar to Fireball, level d4+1)
- Like the Coldest Winter Chill
- Wintery Floor
- Summon Dire Wolves (2d4 wolves appears, must be charmed / controlled with some other method)
- Touch of Winter
Yeti Staff can be recharged by putting it into solid block of ice. During each week in the ice it regains 1d3 charges.

To be honest, I have no idea what I can write for the letter X. Yet Another Useless Names List seems to be the only way to complete the challenge :D
- Xavlan Xenren
- Xiom Xin
As you can see, creating a names beginning with letter X is really simple and funny task. Also you may try to X-ize your own name :D Xalbert sounds as powerful but slightly pathetic sorcerer, isn't it? :D
Also, some time ago I received some negative comments about my lists of unpronounceable names. Well, I can't deny it BUT I don't view it as a negative feature. In example, weird and hard-to-spell name can be used as a password, which must be correctly spoken to open the door / chest / whatever. What do you think about it?
