The World of Illunis
Gnolls are large, dog-like humanoids that live simple, barbaric lives. The power wielded by gnolls is stolen from their prey; the victim must be captured alive and subjected to a torturous ritual. The specific ritual depends on the type of ability being stolen by the gnoll. The rituals are completed by the gnoll’s devouring an appropriate body part while the victim still lives. The rest of the victim is then butchered to feed the gnoll’s tribe; this is simply a meal to the gnolls now. The remaining meat has no power left to convey.
