Gorellik was once the primary patron of gnolls and flinds, but as those races have turned to other gods, he has languished and lost power. I’ve always thought Gorellik was an under-appreciated deity in the game, and a pretty interesting individual. I’ve tried to embellish his history a bit with some additional speculation on his origins, and set him up to be a more useful deity to DMs who want to make more varied gnollish cultures. Enjoy!

Refnara is the old Gnoll goddess of fear, mentioned solely in the adventure “To Bite the Moon” in Dungeon #48. There was quite a bit in that adventure to extrapolate from, and I drew upon a bunch of ideas I had floating around to make quite an interesting deity, I think. Enjoy!
Gnolls have always been one of my favorite races, so it was very interesting to work on Yeenoghu, although I’m a bigger fan of Gorellik. I drew upon a lot of sources for this, including Dragon #63, so I’ve updated the Shoosuva to 2nd Edition. I’ll have to make a Monstrous Compendium sheet for it at some point.
