|L&L Quest||Lore and Legend: Gnoll|
|See the Bestiary for a list of all mobs in this race.|
Gnolls and their clan-based socio-political hierarchies are well established in all areas of Norrath. A few of the known clans are detailed below. For more information about Gnolls, see Know Your Gnolls by Pearl Honeywine.
The Sabertooth gnolls are rulers of the Gnoll den of Blackburrow. Included in their clan are the following packs:
The Skindancers are the surface-dwelling Gnolls in the Southwest of The Thundering Steppes.
The Splitpaw gnolls rule the caverns beneath The Thundering Steppes. The Splitpaw have a very rigid caste system, with titles indicating both Class and Rank.
Note: Even though there is a game mechanic where you earn the trust of the Splitpaw Gnolls through completing a series of quests, there is no actual Faction for them.
These are the surface-dwelling Gnolls of the Desert of Ro
These are the cavern-dwelling Gnolls of The Silent City underneath the the Desert of Ro. They frequently dress in the mummy wrappings found within the Silent City, but the gnolls themselves are very much alive.
The Sareth'Tal were a tribe of agrarian gnolls, completely peaceful, living in the area known as the Loping Plains. Then the Dwarven King, Stormhammer, sent an expeditionary force to establish military outposts and mining operations. The Sareth'Tal complained but took no hostile action, having no military. The brigade commander, Ranthok Redbeard, received orders from the King to negotiate a settlement with the gnolls but, instead, he ordered his troops to massacre the Sareth'Tal. In his anger, Brell released the Avatar of Below, destroying the dwarves. The ghosts of the Sareth'Tal and the Redbeard brigade soldiers can still be seen there where they fell. This act of Hate is the taint that haunts the Loping Plains. 
These are the gnolls currently resident in the once-dwarven city of Kaladim. They coexist with their fellow Serilians: the Goblins of Clan Boombottom, the Bugbears of the Terrok Clan, and the Kobolds of the Frothbark Pack.
