The Hyaenid were one of the many legacies of House Abin's experiments into genetic manipulation. Sired by science and nurtured into a successful, if unpredictable, fledgling population they proceeded to carve a small territory of their own,
The last to join Team Murder Hobo was Nayo Tem who joined after Sabra left the team. She is a gnoll bard who wasn't as good at barding as she was at haggling. Her most notable achievement was killing a man with an insult. #art#headshot#dnd#gnoll#bard
The Hyaenid, thrust into the world as a young and uneducated race and without any resources of their own, developed a proficiency in raiding coastal settlements to get by.

Gnolls! Before I found my love of goblins, I had gnolls. Ravenously vicious, crude, demon worshipping hunters, gnolls make great encounters for low to mid level parties.
Early depictions of gnolls included a "cross between gnomes and trolls" and "like a Jerusalem Artichoke" with tentacle arms and no ears. Well we aren't going to talk about those ones, no one wants that.
Gnolls fight in packs and aren't very courageous. Throw them in small groups along with a few hyena. A party should see most gnolls flee rather than fight to the death. They'll stalk their prey, encircling them until they've set up an ambush. No front line charges. Similarly, it should be rare to see a horde of gnolls. Once a DM gets strategic with their gnolls, their threat level will skyrocket!
A gnoll chieftain or Fang of Yeenoghu can make for a great villian. Imagine the three hyena from Lion King on steroids and you're in business. Or go more trickster, a sort of mix between a cackling Little Finger and Beni Gabor from The Mummy (1999). How do you characterise gnolls? Have you ever played one? How would you set up a gnoll big baddie?
Kita the gnoll, and Tohil the dragonborn!
I didn’t get into D&D until this year, and holy shit was I missing out. I’ve been playing Kita in a campaign with some friends, but Tohil’s starts tomorrow and I! am! excited! -
Hoping to finish this gnoll commission today. Had a few hiccups when I accidentally splattered black paint across it. Oops! Honestly have no idea it happened but I managed to pull up 99.9% of it.
Still must add spots (maybe darken the fur a little more) adjust small details, finish the chainmaille and add more grunge.
