About

Warriors are at the top of the social ladder, often the immediate family of the clan-mother by blood or bond. Relations amongst warriors are usually stable; each of them have fought enough to earn their position that they know where they stand in relation to the others.

Of all the beasts that walk this earth, there is none so foul as a gnoll, the grave-eater, the cowardly trickster, that which is hound and bitch both.
