Kurin (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



Kurins are surprisingly passive unless provoked. Kurins are well... Gnolls, unlike gnolls they do not live in packs and live a very nomadic life. If a kurin encounters another creature it will tend to keep its distance, hidden is possible.

Physical Description[edit]

Tall, lean and muscular. Kurins are a genetic advancement of gnolls. Massive in size, mean, and unfathomably fluffy. The thick layer of fur help maintains a comfortable temperature in the cold underground or warm in the summer plains. The kurins adapted hyper-sensitive feelers on the back of their neck, allowing for surreal perception. The feelers can be easily overloaded by loud noises such as clapping or churchbells.


Kurins are often mistaken for some "Golem-like" Creatures. Kurins very rarely integrate with other societies other than other gnoll societies, when a kurin integrates with another gnoll societies they normally live an "Alpha" warrior kind of life. Kurin offspring normally defaults to basic gnolls. If in the event the parent gives birth to another kurin the child is normally exiled out of the tribe to prevent any 'challengers'. It isn't uncommon for other races to commence raids on Gnoll tribes that have a kurin in it or even to attack and attempt to kill kurins on site due to the threat they can pose. Some communities may even adapt 'kurin hunts', with specialists who carry bells on them and aim to forcefully remove the helmets off of the kurin so the sound of the bells will stun him. These hunts often leave the kurins numbers near extinction. This makes their fur extremely valuable, more so if captured alive for slavers.
