There are several different kinds of gnolls. Regular Gnolls belong to the worker class and they are generally smaller and weaker than Gnoll Brutes and Gnoll Overseers, who belong to the warrior class. Gnoll wardens act as shamans of gnoll tribes, a role that is often taken by female gnolls. Gnoll poachers and gnoll assassins, who use crossbows to hunt and fight opponents, are predominantly male but also females exist among them.
Gnolls are fierce, canine humanoids, who fight with flails and crossbows. Gnolls become “dwarves’ best friends” when the dwarf campaign develops. They are generally rather aggressive and often quarrel among themselves, but the ones encountered in the dwarf campaign are somewhat more civilized than regular gnolls.
