(Necrotic Swamp.)

The Buereks are known for their ferocity on the battlefield. They favor a warhammer or mace as a weapon, as they relish the din that is the snapping of their victim's bones. The gnolls believe that the world is a dream. And all things that die return to the source to be reformed into a new image. The more glory one has accumulated, the more it results in them achieving a higher form in the next life. They bestow deference to those who have acquired it by their actions, finding silvery words to indicate weakness. Florentina Jorgenskull's military might and tactical efficiency have led them to embrace the union with extreme zeal.

The Buereks don't collect trophies from the dead. Instead, these towers of muscles ingest them, concluding that consumption will imbue them with the powers they admire. The shamans of their tribes claim to learn from the dead by devouring their tissue and using intestines to see looming omens. They are known for capturing their enemies and employing torture, to the point that many would rather perish or commit suicide than fall into their claws. They install large carved totems, which they use to impale their foes while they are still alive. Their corpses serve as a warning that you are now within their world and are subject to their customs.

Their species is matriarchal; the women are the bulk of soldiers, while the men handle more mundane affairs. Marriage is done via a sexual act that is so primal that the scholars who venture to document it can never focus long enough to witness the affair. Their love for might has made them prime fodder. All female gnolls of age are conscripted to join the Fathomless Expanse military. The people worship the Sharmoot, a jinn who appeared in a floating egg in the sky that powers their civilization. The adoption of the Eternal Houses faith was seamless. Given the Sharmoot, Samara Del'Fluent describes herself as the dreamer.

The females dictate their relationships as it is inscribed in blood and held as a contract. The terms are written on their backs, as they believe that losing the agreement releases their mates from this binding document. Resulting in the forfeit of any claims to the bounty of the family unit. This species has an affinity for air magic. Their history is carried through oral tradition and throat singing, including the few warriors worth noting outside their species in song. The gnolls believe every dispute brings them closer to embodying the Sharmoot. They moved north after Florentina Jorgenskull butchered their war chiefs and inserted herself as the dominant warrior. They now reside in the swamp/fathomless expanse.
