So, I’m playing D&D through Discord this coming January and of course I put my DM through his paces by wanting to play a Gnoll character.
This is Sheik, she’s a Gnoll Barbarian, She’s young 14 years old (17 in Human years) We used adjusted rules to read more believably. Instead of using Gnoll ages we used Half-Orc ages. She small for a Gnoll (6 ft 3 Inches, 223 Lbs) due to being a runt at birth. Her mother deemed her unworthy and ordered Sheik’s father to abandon her in the wilderness. Instead, he took her and escaped the village to raise her away from the clan.
She lost her father at a young age and was later captured by slavers and sold to an Arena Master. She spent the better part of a year being groomed for combat in non-lethal combat. She made a decent name for herself and lived a somewhat easy life.
One day, the arena master sold her to a Wealthy Blueblood for a large sum of money. Little did she know that she was to be part of a Monster Hunting game on the wealthy human’s land. He and eleven of his friends hunted her, unarmed and shackled through the woods on his property. She was gravely wounded and nearly died, until she was rescued and nursed back to health.
With no money to pay her savior back, she offered her own life as payment. She will serve her friend until the debt could be repaid.
I know that’s a long background for an introductory run through D&D through Discord but I’m hoping to use her a couple more time before she sails off to the Eastern Shores.
