Werewolf (4e Theme)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


You possess latent, inherent lycanthropey, or the blessing, known by some as a curse, of the werewolf. Stories have existed for centuries about werewolves and their capabilities, and while werewolves vary depending on their type, these werewolves are shapeshifters, able to transform in to a man-wolf hybrid beast.


Any race can potentially be a werewolf, but generally only living creatures do so. As the form relies heavily on transformation in to a humanoid biological form, it is typically humanoid and biological creature, rather than artificial constructs (such as warforged or Sharmind) that take this form, however due to the magical nature of the transformation can apply even to non-biological creatures.
