FLAY AND RESKIN: GNOLLS BE BEASTMAN

Now that's badass
Gnolls are stupid. Like kobold-stupid. On the other hand, I am lazy. Like, Italian-lazy. So instead of coming up with a new monster, I will just use the Gnolls stats to represent Beastman in my games from here on. I like to call this process flay and reskin: same old stats, new exciting flavor.

Now, for your edification and enjoyment, I would like to point you to this Wikipedia entry for the Broo, the monsters that inspired the Warhammer Fantasy Beastman:
"Broo or Goatkin are creatures with the body of a man and the head of a goat, or some other animal. Broos are filthy creatures, always carriers of disease. They worship Malia, the Mother of Disease, in addition to their patroness, Thed, the goddess of rape and mother of Chaos. Broo have the ability to mate with any other species, with the child eating its way out of the host at full gestation. The newborn would distribute traits of parent and host. Within Dragon Pass (where most players set their adventures), goats are generally considered ritually unclean animals (perhaps because of their association with Broo) and are rarely herded."
Now that's fucking badass.
