Great Werewolf

More Useborne supernatural inspired monster fun for lycanthrope month

Unrelated to the problem where a charitable person like i dunno Jesus bites you and you become a philanthrope or a mean selfish bastard bites you and you become a misanthrope.

Thinking i need to do a werewolfwars or beast wars
would beastmen get persecuted in werewolf war?
do they get along?
plus i have spirit animal folk changelings
and talking intelligent magic animals
so maybe a beastwars post
plants and mushrooms can have a go later
were direwolf size of an ogre anyone?
Or ogres that turn into Pleistocene monsters

Human Form

They can change at will and use any transition they can imagine
They can use armour and weapons and have a bite attack for exampleThe can cast class spells if not beserk and semi humanoid bipedal at least
As humans they have Track, Listen, Survival, Smell, Listen skills
They live forever unless killed, many are cult or pack leaders
If killed and body intact they often arise as a wight or vampire the next night
All have same HP as human form and most are 8HD fighters or another class
Mostly they are genius and cunning so will avoid going beserk unless trapped and losing or in negative HP but once berserk last one turn or ten rounds. When berserk they are more vulnerable and cant use spells or effective tactics. They are willing to attack flee and return over time regenerating and infecting victims deliberately and wasting charmed allies then come back with more.
