Heyena men who worship a demon-god of murder and blood

Burned up a Gnoll template for the Burning Wheel game over at the BW forums.

A key part of the Monster Burning process is peer review.  I tend to do this over at the forum, letting the players in my game know about it should they want to (or have the time to) participate.  Also, if they don’t want to know, that is cool too.

I got some great feedback and now they’re burned up and ready to roll (behind the cut):

  • We will serve the Red Wizards for as long as their orders allow us to feed our stone altars with blood and murder.
  • Any pack-mates who endanger the rest of us with weakness will be eaten.
  • Once we have enough altars throughout the land, our demon-god will rise again; we must feed our blood altars with tokens from our fell deeds.


  • If opponent is easy prey, go aggressive.
  • Always eat our kill.
  • Never eat a wizard, their arcane blood gives nightmares and eventually madness.
