Stepping through the portal from the Plane of Justice, you arrive in a village in the Qeynos Hills. As you head to the center of town, there is an alarm -- the guards have spotted a lone Gnoll brazenly charging the walls! You rush to investigate just in time to see the Gnoll howl forth his battle cry:
'BBBBAAAARRRKKKK!!!!! You will pay for ruining our homeland! Fippy Darkpaw of the Sabretooth Clan will slay you all! BARK!'
Suddenly, dozens more heavily-armed Gnolls rise over the behind Fippy, their eyes glowing fierce and desperate!</p>
The guard turns to you. 'I can see the fires of battle stirring in your eyes. Help us defend our homes from these foul beasts!'

Game Win Lore
Through your daring efforts, you have defeated the legendary Fippy Darkpaw! His blade flies from his grip and he stumbles to the ground. The remaining Gnolls flee in terror. Fippy shrieks, his paw twisted in fear to vainly block the final blow. 'YIP! YIP! YIP! Please spare me! I'll tell you why we attacked your village! BARK!' The Gnoll's words are puzzling. You stay your weapon -- for now -- and demand the answer.
'We had to do it! GRRRRRR! Tough-guy Darkpaw Seer named Neesrat made us. This Neesrat no ordinary Seer -- has eyes more fierce than even the hardest Gnoll. YAP! YAP! He controls a Cyclops taller than the highest tree! BARK! Everyone afraid to disobey! Neesrat threatened to make his Cyclops smash our burrows and crush our families unless we swore to burn your village! BARK!'
Though this savage raid was unprovoked, your judgment tells you to spare Fippy so you can investigate this greater threat. In exchange for his life, Fippy swears his loyalty and offers to guide you safely down the perilous trail to the Vulture Root.
You have defeated Fippy Darkpaw!

Fippy's Gnolls have broken through your final defenses! The remaining villagers flee for their lives as the Gnolls put their homes to torch and sword.
Fippy slams you to the ground with his mighty paws, letting loose a howl through the roar of the flames.
'GGGRRRRRR!!! Qeynos is mine you fools! You will never defeat me. I am too powerful!!!! BBBBBAAAARRRKKKK!!!!!'
The last thing you see is the flashing teeth and fiery eyes of the Gnoll warrior as the ashes of the village rise to the heavens.
