After an ancient law banned human fighters from the arenas, the Beastcrafters exploited a loophole and created numerous varieties of anthropomorphised animal hybrids. While many different species were exploited to this end, rats, dogs, and hyenas provided strong, reliable subjects and were amongst the most common hybrids.
Gnolls form are easily the most numerous group of living creatures inside the Frozen City. Most gnolls will belong to one of the many tribes, clans, or packs that claims large areas of the underground as their territories. While gnolls only rarely come to the surface, their hunting parties are occasionally encountered by explorers in the ruins.
Gnolls possess a low-level human intelligence. They are capable of limited human speech and can produce simple tools and weapons, though they prefer to steal or loot rather than create. Gnoll warriors include all of the same types found in human societies, though those that rely on specialized weapons or heavy armour such as knights and marksmen are uncommon.
The Frostgrave Gnolls box set contains enough parts to make 20 different figures. There are multiple heads, arms, weapons and accoutrements per frame, no two warbands will ever be the same.
