Goblin Queen (She/Her/Hers)
Yes! For me, flinds take over the demonic role left vacant by turning gnolls into a more nuanced people. My flinds are a lot like wendigos - gnolls possessed by evil spirits (in this case, demons) that are afflicted by ravenous, insatiable hunger and often driven to cannibalism as a result. My gnolls are born in the normal way, but the 5e origin for gnolls, where they were created from hyenas that ate the flesh of Yeenoghu’s victims, is essentially my gnolls’ origin myth for flinds. Just replace the hyenas with gnolls and the gnolls with flinds. For most gnolls, it’s a cautionary parable warning against resorting to scavenging. To Yeenoghu cultists (who are not viewed positively by the majority of gnoll society!) it’s aspirational, and their priests might perform rituals to desecrate a kill before eating it, in hopes of inviting demonic possession so they might be “elevated” into flinds.so does any one use The Flind?
and how do you use it - are they just bigger gnolls, a different species/monster or maybe a unique individual?
