What is a Horpion?

     A horpion is a half horse, half scorpion creature.  It has the body of a horse with both the pincers and the stinger of a scorpion.  The creature is quite fearsome I assure you.  It is incredibly swift like a horse but has the ability grab its foe with its pincers while delivering a lethal sting.

     Credit for the concept of the horpion has to go to my buddy Jim.  He created it upon hearing that an entity that uses a horse as their mascot often discovered scorpions at their facility.  He remarked, "they should change their mascot to a horpion".

     I borrowed his concept because it would be the perfect video game nemesis or even boss.  How cool would be it encounter such a creature in a game like Skyrim?  Scorpions make cool enemies but they are usually slow.  A horpion though, you would have your hands full.  Or, what if you could tame one like in Red Dead Redemption and make them your mount?  Good stuff.

     Anyway you slice it, a horpion fits into gaming about as well as anything else.  Now that you know what a horpion is and why I chose to use it as my blog name, what do you think?  Let me know in the comments below.
