Change Gnoll bailey placement

I entered Bailey from D:14 and met 8 gnoll sergeants and about 15 gnolls/gnoll shamans, that's all. It is boring/unchallenging, especially because many people usually enter D:14 after Lair and Orc. I suggest to change the Bailey to appear at D8-9 at most.

My guess is the Gnoll Fortress bailey.

Re: Change Gnoll bailey placement

Which baileys are challenging at D:14? Surely the change should be to limit the depth at which any bailey can appear?

The one with Deep Elf magi|knights can be bad, especially if one is doing D before Lair.
