Book of Races: Gnolls


Gnolls are feral humanoids raised from demonic and hyena stock. They're carrion eaters and live on the outskirts of civilization. They're the living embodiment of hunger, driven to a constant state of near-rage, always a second away from giving in to an unstoppable bloodthirst. They lurk in the shadows, and wait for their moment to strike and lay ruin to the world of man, all in the name of Yeenoghu, their demonic god. You are an exception to this, having lost or left your pack following a remarkable incident. You've grown stronger than your old packmates would ever believe, but you need a new pack. A strong pack. One that can get you what you want.

Inside this book, you'll find all the rules you need to play one of these creatures, including stats, abilities, and background information on how they fit into a wider campaign world. 

The book is a total of 5 pages long, with 3 pages of content (plus 1 cover page and 1 credit page).

And for this one, there is a little song. :) - Please hum to the tune of "Breaking the Law".

I am just a feral humanoid, hyena-like, and brown
Slaughtering and eating flesh of villagers in town
No goodness or compassion resides in my heart
Celebrating victory and then ripping you apart

I am going to be honest - I read through this and it felt like a missed opportunity. I enjoy the lore that Kim added and it certainly expands on a really interesting race that I think deserves more limelight, but I think the mark was missed with this [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
