Wolf

This is a large wolf. It is a mass of fur and claws and is a bit larger than your average wolf. Its dark yellow eyes pierce into your soul as it sizes you up as prey.

  • Alignment: 4 to 8 degrees evil

Man [Naked]

This dark young man is firmly built with many large muscles covering his naked body. His hands are like claws and he looks as if he is ready to pounce.

  • Alignment: 4 to 8 degrees evil

Man [Nude]

This is a middle aged man in the prime of his life. His hair flows in a golden mane down his back and he glistens with sweat and possibly oil. His hands are caked in blood and his naked form is fairly dripping with it.

  • Alignment: 4 to 8 degrees evil

Man [Sly]

This dark young man is firmly built with many large muscles covering his naked body. His hands are like claws and he looks as if he is ready to pounce. His dark eyes size you up and down in a calculating manner.

  • Alignment: 4 to 8 degrees evil

Man [Smart]

  • Alignment: 4 to 8 degrees evil

Woman [Clever]

This is a golden skinned middle aged woman with a sharp edged look to her. She has a refined grace for all that she is walking about without a stitch of clothing on. She has a dark gleam in her eyes as if searching for prey.

  • Alignment: 4 to 8 degrees evil

Woman [Conniving]

This is a lithe sensuous woman without a scrap of cloth to cover her spare form. Her nails are long and sharp and tinted brown with dried blood. She sizes you up with her dark eyes just waiting for you to run.

  • Alignment: 4 to 8 degrees evil

Woman [Hairy]

This is a lithe sensuous woman without a scrap of cloth to cover her spare form. Her nails are long and sharp and tinted brown with dried blood. She watches you with a look of hunger in her eyes.

  • Alignment: 4 to 8 degrees evil

Woman [Nude]

This dark young woman has a remarkably beautiful figure without a spare ounce of fat on her. She looks mysterious with her auburn hair hanging down past her knees. She looks as if she is ready to lunge for your throat.

  • Alignment: 4 to 8 degrees evil

Wolves and Werewolves

Some striking differences between wolves and werewolves:

  • Unlike wolves, werewolves can be targeted/referred to either as "wolf" or "man/woman".
  • Werewolves are always aggressive in wolf form. Wolves may or may not be aggressive, and wolves in Uberwald are never aggressive.
  • They have different descriptions. Notably, a wolf's description mentions the wolf's gender (he or she), whereas a werewolf's description always uses "it."

Uses

  • No special uses

Special Notes

  • May be found singly, or in packs of up to seven werewolves.
  • Once killed, a werewolf turns into a man or woman.
  • Very high strike speed, high damage (400~ if you're unarmoured). In terms of combat, a werewolf can be compared to a slightly stronger vampire, but without the debilitating bite.
  • Werewolves seem to be resistent to fire damage research.
  • Silver armoury seem to be more effective against werewolvesresearch, but only in their wolf form. When in human form werewolves will cut through silver like butterresearch.
  • Werewolves do not go into towns. If you happen to find yourself pursued by one, run to the nearest town.[4]
  • Most werewolves will be initially in their human form, but will immediately transform when approached (even when successfully sneaked upon):
With a roar of rage the werewolf shimmers and shifts form.
  • Upon daytime, werewolves will become human again, and will no longer be aggressive. However, if considered they WILL attack.
The widdershins sky starts to lighten as the sun peeks over the horizon.
With a soul piercing howl the wolf shimmers and stretches into a new form.
>consider man
The smart man pursues you.
The smart man looks pretty nasty.
The smart man moves aggressively towards you!
The smart man tears at your neck with his claws.
Someone says: MY, WE'VE BEEN A BIT CARELESS, HAVEN'T WE?  SHALL WE POPPADOM TO THE NEXT DIMENSION?


Footnote

  1. Always aggressive in wolf form; aggressive if considered in human form.
  2. We have yet to figure out what causes most werewolves to be stationary and a few of them to pursue.
  3. General disc locations for the bestiary defined.
  4. That's probably Escrow, which has vampires.
