Most gnolls are fierce predators dedicated to wanton destruction. But some gnolls reject their demonic heritage to become adventurers. These gnoll heroes pursue more noble causes and seek to push back the tide of darkness.

I've played a Gnoll once in my life and had a blast with it. This article is great and i found the origins of Gnolls to be worthy of their birthrite. Here's a snippit of a description: "Yeenoghu took a few of his mightiest and most savage demons and fed them to a pack of mortal hyenas. The essence of the demons fused with the animals, and their children were the first of the gnolls -- fierce humanoid creatures combining the traits of cunning hyena and vicious fiend. Yeenoghu charged the gnolls to spread horror in his name, bathing the lands in blood and bringing suffering to all things unfortunate enough to cross paths with the Children of Yeenoghu. Through this butchery, they earn a place of honor in the domain of the demon prince."

After my move to the Bay Area, i may just have talk a couple of players into an Evil Gnoll Campaign...Underdark, Deep Woods, etc. This could be fun.
