Grimgnash the griffin in his nest on White Wolf Mountain

This page serves as a source of information on griffins as it is applicable to World 42 role-playing characters. Feel free to contribute.

Griffins are a well-known fantastical race that are known for their odd combination of races.

A Brief History

It is unknown when griffins came to Gielinor, or who brought them here. They have played little part in the events of the world, and the only known griffin resides on White Wolf Mountain.

Accepted Lore

This section addresses details about griffins that are widely accepted throughout the World-42 role-playing community.

  • Griffins have the front half of a large bird of prey, including the wings, and the back-half of a lion
  • As we have had only one experience with griffins, it is unknown whether or not he is a good representation of the personality or strength of his race.

Debated Lore

This section addresses details about griffins that are subject to debate or speculation. This can either be because of inconsistent/non-existant information in-game or because use of the detail in role-play creates an unfair scenario (usually involving overpowering or another common roleplay problem).

All of this is based on the experience the player has with Grimgnash the griffin.

  • Griffins seem violent and enjoy gruesome detail, and violence in general.
  • Griffins seem to like having nests on tall, cold, icy mountains.
  • Griffins are strong enough to cause significant damage to a human being. It is unknown if this is true for all Griffins, or if Grimgnash is unusually strong.
  • There seems to be only one griffin on Gielinor, but it is unknown if there is more in an unfound location.
  • Griffins do not seem to care for, or be fond of humans. Once again, it is unknown if this is just Grimgnash's personality.
  • Griffins may be capable of flight.

Common Mistakes

This section addresses common traits inexperienced role-players often bestow griffins, but are not seen on any actual griffins in game

  • Griffins have been confirmed to have died off except for Grimgnash, making him the very last, and rendering them an unplayable species.
  • Griffins don't appear to be very kind, or care for any humans whatsoever, so it is unlikely that you might have one as a pet.
