Gnolls and Gnoll Marauders are level 1 creatures of Fortress town. They are recruited from the Gnoll Hut.

"Armed with morning stars, gnolls and gnoll marauders are above average foot soldier units." RoE manual

Building the Captain's Quarters increases gnolls' growth by 6 per week. Their defense is higher than most level 1 units.

Tactics and info

Gnolls and Gnoll Marauders are more than decent fighter in the early stages of the game, being able to easily clear wandering monsters with little help. However, they should also be used in such a way to not take too much damage, since their numbers can drop very fast if they're continuously attacked.

Even if it's stated in the game manual that they're armed with morning stars, they are in fact armed with flails. This is probably because the developers forgot to correct their description when launching the game.

Heroes with a specialty

  • Drakon Drakon the Beastmaster has gnolls as a specialty, which increases the attack and defense skills of any gnolls or gnoll marauders for each level attained after 1st level, and gives them a speed bonus of 1.
