Much larger, stronger, and more intelligent than either Goblins or Orcs are Gnolls. Originally believed to be related, warriors who have been known to encounter all three types of beast, and lived, claim, “…there is no such comparison. If a Gnoll be a Goblin…then Humans be Dwarves.” Covered in fur that thins as it approached their head, their coloration varies from light, matte greys to brownish reds.
They live tribally, occupying abandoned fortifications to stave off hunters or glory-seekers. They prefer these civilized architectures to those of natural ones for their stronger defensibility, should they be followed after one of their more attention-grabbing incidents.
Gnolls are evil creatures, thriving in mayhem and chaos, and often create events to increase such states of mind and being. As such, they worship the demon lord, Yeenoghu, and often indulge in Human flesh as tribute to their deity.
