What was covered by our resident archivist was only a sampling of the many were-creatures that torment civilization.  Many more threaten to bring ruination to all those who threaten their claimed territory.  Woe to those who encounter such fearsome foes, even if they are completely prepared for what lies ahead.

The werebeast, lycanthrope or zoanthrope is a monstrosity born from something dark and primal within us.  It is awakened through dark pacts, wicked curses, magical plagues or even an act so vile that your own living realm changes you in response.  No matter the origin, such creatures remain a danger to all those around them, even the lycanthropes that aren’t inherent advocates of pure evil.  Raw and unrestrained emotion can lead to massive destruction if left unchecked and the were-beast is indeed freed and passionate anger incarnate.

AUTHOR’S NOTE:  I didn’t finish everything I wanted to do, so I figured I’d expand upon it here.  With that, here’s a few more creatures at your disposal, including an update of my werebat from last year!  Plus, a whole bunch of inspirations have lead to some cool new creatures.
