Wicked Fantasy: Gnolls: For the Pack

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$5.00

This wretched, disease-carrying creature is the result of the mating of a gnome and a troll. Its skin is infected with fungus and its hair is always matted, thick with its own filth.

It is a cowardly, carrion creature that feeds on the kills of others. Its heart is devoid of heroism, preferring to attack lone individuals in groups, using superior numbers to compensate for its weaknesses. Their deformity—with short legs and long arms—is an outward indication of inner corruption.

These scavenging disease-bringers deserve nothing more than our complete contempt. I hereby advise His Highness that if his guards come across these worthless things that they be killed, then burned to prevent the spread of their foulness.

—Alvador Stime, High Scholar for the King of Men, Edward Dunzny

* * *

They are not the result of the mating of a gnome and a troll. Anyone who looks at one could figure that out in five seconds. They look nothing like trolls nor do they bear any resemblance to gnomes. A gnoll looks more like a hyena standing upright.

And gnolls do not call themselves gnolls. That word was invented by the aforementioned scholar and stuck in the human language ever since. “Gnolls” call themselves the dach’youn. It means, “we the trodden.” (The less formal name is dach.) The name does give them a sense of self-awareness, but not as one might think. It is not a title of self-pity, but only a realistic understanding of their place in the world.

Wicked Fantasy began as a series of articles in Kobold Quarterly Magazine reinventing the "standard races" in fantasy roleplaying. Now, those same articles have been expanded and revised (five times their
original size!) and fit with the PATHFINDER Roleplaying Game.

The fourth in the series--For the Pack--tackles one of the most misunderstood races in all of fantasy literature: gnolls.

Disregarded as simple pack animals, the dach'youn have long been seen as simple pack animals, but there is so much more to their culture than men suspect. In fact, gnolls know secrets men may never discover.



Wicked Fantasy: For the Pack includes:

  • FULL COLOR AND FULLY ILLUSTRATED!
  • New Gnoll Racial Traits
  • New Pack Rules, making gnolls a deadly force when working together
  • SIX NEW ARCHTEYPES! All designed to work within the pack

  • And More!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
