Lycanthropy is one of those terrible curses spoken about in hushed whispers around the tavern fireplace. Tall tales and local myth of vanished folks, missing livestock and otherworldly howls in the dark forest outside the village.
Werewolves are the savage predators born from the curse. Able to transform at-will to a full wolf, or this humanoid-wolf hybrid form, they are dangerous and violent under the best of circumstances.
Perfect as enemies OR for player characters who are cursed with lycanthropy.
