    Variants and Examples
    Editor's Note
    The stats given for the gnoll indicate that it has a shield bonus to its AC, as well as listing a heavy wooden shield in the Treasure line. However, the attack line states that it is wielding a spear two-handed in melee. It is completely reasonable that gnolls use a wide variety of weapons, so here are two alternative stat block entries which allow for both situations (wielding a heavy shield or wielding a spear two-handed.) The entries below should replace those given in the original stat block at left (depending on which you choose to use).

    Wielding Battleaxe plus Heavy Wooden Shield:

    AC As shown at left
    Melee
    battleaxe +3 (1d8+2/x3)
    Ranged longbow +1 (1d8/x3)

    Wielding Spear Two-Handed:

    AC 14, touch 10, flat-footed 14 (+3 armor, +1 natural)
    Melee As shown at left
    Treasure NPC Gear (studded leather armor, spear, other treasure)
