Gnolls (per B/X)

"Gnolls are rumored to be the result of a magical combination of a gnome and a troll by an evil magic user."
- Tom Moldvay, Basic Rulebook


How did I forget about this?


Was the concept so horrible to envision that my mind erased it as a defensive measure?

  1. Been playing on and off since 79, didn't notice that about Gnoles until a decade ago when someone pointed it out online. I think it may be that that the hyena-humanoid is so visually striking that it erased it. I do know that the word Gnoll comes from Dunsany, though his gnoles aren't really described physically from what I remember and don't resemble either creature in any case.

So I got to know about Dr. Itua on Blog Site who treated someone and the person shared a story of how she got a cured and let her contact details, I contacted Dr. Itua and he actually confirmed it and I decided to give a try too and use his herbal medicine that was how my burden ended completely.
