Laughing Gnolls[edit]


Laughing Gnolls tend to be calm and blunt creatures. They value honer and honesty above trickery. They also tend to value physical stamina over brute strength, though they still enjoy pranks and other harmless jokes.

Physical Description[edit]

Laughing Gnolls stand between 5 to 6 feet tall on average, and normally weigh between 130 to 200 pounds. Their jaws are less muscled then their larger cousins, making biting ineffective. Their fur is also shorter, and it's color can range in blacks, reds, yellows, browns, and whites, usually with spots and their mains in a darker shade.


Laughing Gnolls tend to make peace with their neighbors. They often try to form aliances with any neighboring elves, gnomes, or dwarfs.


Usually Neutral.


Laughing Gnolls tend to settle near forests, building villages with walls around them. The few villages in deserts are usually built in oasis's and serve as places of rest and safety to traveling caravans.


Laughing Gnolls favor Ehlonna, as their lore says that she remade them from their evil cousins.
