The Gassy Gnoll: Grumpy Spirits of Halloween

This Gassy Gnoll has become a bit of a grump as far as the kiddish aspects of Old Hallows’ Eve goes.

News from Around the Net: 28-OCT-2011

The Gassy Gnoll: Zombie Horde Edition

You’d never guess that The Gassy Gnoll is a zombie fan, but he is. Ever since he discovered the shambling, stumbling, biting, clawing undead beasts animated by magic, virus, or technology, he knew that zombies were one of the ultimate answers even if we’d quickly forgotten what the question was.
