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.

I had HIV for 6 years and i never thought I would ever get a cure I had and this made it impossible for me to get married to the man I was supposed to get married to even after 2 years of relationship he broke up with me when he finds out I was HIV positive. 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.

  12. Being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email: Richvampirekindom@gmail.com

  14. Do you realize there is a 12 word phrase you can tell your crush... that will induce deep emotions of love and impulsive attractiveness to you deep within his heart?

    That's because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that fuels a man's instinct to love, adore and care for you with all his heart...

    12 Words Will Fuel A Man's Desire Response

    This instinct is so built-in to a man's mind that it will drive him to try better than before to build your relationship stronger.

    In fact, triggering this influential instinct is so essential to having the best ever relationship with your man that once you send your man one of the "Secret Signals"...

    ...You'll instantly notice him expose his heart and soul to you in such a way he's never expressed before and he'll distinguish you as the one and only woman in the world who has ever truly tempted him.

  24. Здравствуйте! Обращаем ваше внимание на справочник используемых лекарственных средств. В справочник вошли данные о более чем семистах назначаемых медикаментах, производимых российскими и зарубежными фармкомпаниями. О любом лекарственном средстве присутствует полнейшая инфа: состав и форма выпуска, лечебные характеристики, показания к использованию, критерии применения, противопоказания, дополнительные побочные эффекты, взаимодействие с алкогольными напитками и взаимодействие другими лекарствами, также вероятность приема при грудном вскармливании, беременности. В справочник введен тематический указатель, где представлена инфа о том, какое медикаментозное средство следует использовать при тех или иных синдромах, состояниях, болезнях. Справочное издание лежит на медицинском портале. Если не поможет, обратитесь к врачу. Меклофенамовая кислота, Дапипразол, Преднизон, Магния сульфат, Дихлорацетат, Нифедипин,
