A Field Guide to Werewolves


Field Guide on Werewolves, and those who hunt them.

by Dr. Johan Kosdin Lerkoviski

Known Lycanthrope Hunter, Specializing in Werewolves


I write this in the hopes that it will deflect others from my chosen path. To hunt the bizarre and terrible beasties is not for the feint of heart or weak of spirit. Indeed not. Had I known what my chosen path would lead me to I would have taken up caravan duty or become a mercenary, far easier tasks I feel. I have survived these years with scars both inward and outward. Lost an eye to a hexenwolf and am missing two fingers due to a very enraged lobisomem. Due to a misunderstanding of cultures. A perpetual limp and a permanent sneer all lead to why I pen these pages in the hopes the smarter ones stay home.
With this guide I hope to implore upon those who wish to travel down this dark, lonely, and deadly path. It is unforgiving and near completely deadly. In this journal I will detail all I know about lycanthropes, specifically those dealing with werewolves. I will distinguish between the ones who are deadly, and the ones who are deadlier. Sit back, grab a mead and a cozy fire and prepare for what I hope will dissuade you from ever wanting to hunt anything that will look to you as an entree.

A Field Guide to Werewolves - Hexenwolf By: Mourngrymn ( Lifeforms ) Intelligent Species - Any

Entry Heading

Hexenwolf – Magic, Were Creature, subclass Wolf

Hexenwolf are difficult to find and track. Those who are gifted with such ability usually keep it hidden and to themselves. All seem to be lost however to spiral down a long road of animalism if they are not careful.

A Field Guide to Werewolves - Lycan By: Mourngrymn ( Lifeforms ) Intelligent Species - Any

Entry Heading

Lycan - Beast, Were Creature, subclass Wolf
The Lycan is a common werewolf. They are neither evil or saints but predisposed to the same range of emotional and morals as any other person. Some can be a bit ill tempered so be wary before approaching one until you know its heritage.

More to come, ran out of time. Thanks for Muro for putting me up to a challenge to get at least this done.

Frame story! I like it and the distinction between blood-born and bitten lycanthropes.

Dr. Lervolachi will now proceed to give us a few lessons in lycanthropy and on battling back its tide. Looking forward to the complete guide on were-wolves and were-wolf hunters

Ambitious, but a good idea! Will you also include weres other than wolves? I have had some very memorable experiences with wererats and werebears. I hope for more!

Regrettably, probably not. This was a joke that turned into an idea that will have five or so more entries that I myself will do. However it is a codex and therefore open for others to input and add their own pages to the Field Guide.

Book of the Gods

       By: MysticMoon

This tome looks like a haphazard collection of random notes on different types of paper stitched together and bound within a wooden cover. The pages describe all of the 300,000 gods of the world, each in the language of the people who worship them. The book is stored high in the mountains, kept safe by an order of monks. Reading the entire book confers a deep understanding on the nature of the cosmos and access to incredible power. This only works, however, if it is read without translation, meaning that the reader must master each language contained within. The various monks know these languages but there is typically only one alive at a time who knows them all. This monk would be an excellent source of information and/or magic. IF the PCs learn about it; IF they can find the monastery; IF they can convince the monks to help them; AND if they can understand the convoluted riddle given as an answer.
