Ecology: The gnorri are a form of mermen, who dwell in the oceans of the Dreamlands. They can breathe water as well as air and make their homes in shallow waters near the coasts. They live off of fish and cultivate some undersea crops.

Personality/Motivation: Normal sentient humanoid motivations. For the most part the gnorri are a peaceful race and trade with surface-dwellers.

Powers/Tactics: The gnorri typically go about armed with spears, tridents, and harpoons, and fight with those weapons. When combating air-breathers, the gnorri aren't above using their lower bodies to drag their foe under the surface and hold him there.

Appearance: The gnorri have a humanoid head and torso (with long hair and a thick beard), with a long (15-20 feet) "tentacle" for a lower body. A gnorri will have anywhere from 2-4 arms, with 3-armed gnorri having a STR and DEX of around 13-15, and a 4-armed gnorri having a STR of 10 and a DEX of 18.

Designer's Notes: The gnorri is a race of beings of the Cthulhu/Dreamlands Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft. This design was based upon the gnorri presented in the 5th Edition of The Complete Dreamlands. Game Masters may wish to add certain skill packages from pages 117-119 of Monsters, Minions, and Marauders.
