Exotic Ancestries - Gnoll


You Gnow You Want to Play a Gnoll!


In the Pathfinder Second Edition roleplaying game, a character’s ancestry matters more than ever before, and because ancestries allow characters to choose from a variety of options and abilities as they continue to increase in level, there are more opportunities for ancestries that represent more exotic and exciting creatures that have normally not been suitable for player characters.


This book presents an exciting new ancestry, allowing players to take on the role of gnolls. Hyena-like humanoids known for hunting in packs, capturing slaves, and eating the flesh of the dead, gnolls are a race of fierce warriors. While many gnolls have fallen to the practice of demon worship, some retain their roots as noble hunters. In this book, you’ll find:


  • Background information on gnoll characters, including an overview of their physical features, society, alignment and religion, and naming conventions.
  • Basic stats for gnoll characters.
  • Six gnoll heritages, including demoniac gnoll, gnoll slaver, and plains-strider gnoll.
  • Eighteen ancestry feats for gnoll characters, including Blood Frenzy, Flesheater, and Packmate Hyena.

I love checking your ancestry products and I usually buy them on first sight, but I noticed your latest two releases were short on content and feel rushed. They lack the dedication that made up a lot of flavor in previous releases. The Satyr one doesn't even have any artwork in it, like a very rushed or low-budgeted product.

Also what's up with the massive flat-colored block with ancestry parameters, it is eye-gourging red in this product and the text is barely readable. You use colors that are absolutely not aligned with the sepia/parchment layout of your own product.

I am afraid this is sign of quality going down... :/

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.
