Flags Speaks
A brutally twisted undead gnoll in the eternal service of Ereshkigal, lord of Tartarus. Legend has it that he sold his soul to return his most beloved hunting dog to life. Whether that hound is a member of his current pack, none can say.

For a list of all gnolls, see list of gnolls. Not to be confused with Grum.

Useful Info

Grunn the Punished is a unique monster that comes with a pack of 2-4 doom hounds. He has a 1% of spawning with the Scythe of Curses, if it hasn't generated already.

Grunn is an alternate version of Grum. Only one may spawn in a given game.


Tips & Tricks

  • The doom hounds are often the scariest part of the encounter. They spawn extremely dangerous monsters for where Grunn can be encountered. The Howl status effect can be resisted by willpower, though it takes Will+++++ to be fully immune. You can also use a potion of cancellation to remove the Howl status.
  • Mind Grunn himself, who often comes with a highly enchanted heavy polearm of draining. Still, if alone, he's just an upscaled gnoll with a polearm. Many characters can stay out of his reach, or simply tank the hits.
