Gnoll Society

Gnolls are natural born hunters, and revere nature and it’s spirits. Gnolls live in packs, each with a pack leader and a shaman, both holding an equal amount of power over the pack. To become shaman, a Gnoll has to go on a journey to the Ghal’dec Forest, where they must commune with the forest spirit Amua. This journey can take many weeks. They love hunting, and everyone in the pack will hunt at least some of the time. Relationships with other packs vary from friendly to semi hostile, however when time comes for mating, regardless of any hostility, the strongest male from each pack (other than the leaders) will be sent to a neighbouring pack to ensure fresh blood is introduced.

Gnolls live in the northern plains, bordering the forest, however they are nomadic, and do not live in the one location for very long. While Gnolls much prefer to be with their own kind, they are not openly hostile to the other races unless provoked. Most of the other races are disturbed by the Gnoll’s habit of eating corpses, regardless of the species, which Gnolls see as only wasting meat if not consumed.
